Optimus Prime-Inspired Manicure
Transformers is huge right now with the recent release of the 3rd movie installment ‘Dark Side of the Moon’. I still remember the Optimus Prime of old, though…when he looked like this.
I guess the creators of this millennium’s Transformers series thought ol’ Optimus needed an updated paint job because now he looks like this.
Well I love makeovers and I’m a fan of the red-blue flame look. The following picture (a real life rendering of Optimus Prime in his ‘disguise’) gave me inspiration for this manicure.
For this manicure I used the following colors:
Base color: China Glaze Jitterbug (gunmetal)
Red/Orange: Wet n Wild Fast Dry 188.8.131.52.Orange, Wet n Wild Fast Dry Everybody Loves Redmond, Essie Forever Young, China Glaze Phat Santa [I used 184.108.40.206.Orange as the base color the sponged on the other 3 colors one after the other in order to create that fade from orange to dark red]
Blue Flames: Wet n Wild Fast Dry Saved by the Blue
Aaaaaand it’s an Enamelista Signature mani so it looks different dependent upon the angle you view my hands. I hope I did Optimus Prime proud. Transformers was one of my favorite cartoons growing up. 😀
