52 week nail art challenge – Week 22: Favourite hero

Hello lovelies,

How was your weekend?  Ready for the week?  My weekend was pretty good even though uneventful.  Just what I needed.  I got a lot of stuff done and besides a LOT of swatches coming your way soon I so thrilled to have caught up on a lot of admin.  I am ready for this week!  At least right now I am.  I might feel differently by this afternoon 😛

Time for another week of #52weeknailchallenge hosted by Polish Portfolio.  As always, you can follow this # to see what other people are creating and you can find the list of prompts for this year below.

The prompt this week is favourite hero and it was a toughie.  We don’t have a lack of ‘movie’ heroes so choosing is already tough.  Then I considered going deep and doing a real life person that has become a hero to me.  In the end I went with something I liked AND could actually translate to my nails.  Let me show you what I did.

I decided to go with Merida from the movie Brave.  I know, I know….technically she is a princess but in my opinion she is a hero too.  I really love the movie and I really love her so here we are.  I started with 1 coat of China Glaze – Sunset seeker on my ring finger and 2 coats of China Glaze – Baroque jungle not he rest of my nails. I then did a stamped smoosh on my ring finger using China Glaze – Sunset seeker and China Glaze – Flame-boyant.  While that was drying I stamped on the rest of my nails using BM-H05 and Mundo de Unas – Gold to stamp the irish knot like pattern on the tips. These nails are to represent her dresses.  Once the smoosh was dry, I stamped over that with Moyra 32 – Nature and Mundo de Unas – Geranium.  This was to represent Merida’s hair.  I topcoated everything and that was that.

Thanks for reading,


  1. I try to not look at your posts for the 52 Week challenge until I’ve done mine, but boy was I glad I noticed your nails in my feed… yep, totally stole the idea!
    I didn’t read your post until now though and woman, you did great! I absolutely love this!! I actually guessed it was ‘the girl from Brave’ by just that one picture I saw 🙂
