Thor 2 Nail Art...Loki Nails!

Okay guys.

So, Thor 2 comes out tomorrow, and I am SO EXCITED! Loki is, without a doubt, my favorite fictional character EVER. I don't know if it's because he is played by the amazing Tom Hiddleston, or because his character is so badass, but I love him. I mayyy or may not have been planning this manicure for months. I'm probably going to see the actual movie on Sunday (my day off), but I could see it before. My boyfriend offered to take me to the midnight showing, but honestly I'm getting to an age where I don't even want to go see a movie at midnight.

I'm working every day until Sunday, so there's a huge risk of my nails chipping before I can actually see the movie, but I had some free time and I figured I could always touch it up. 

As always, I used one coat of ORLY Bonder on all nails. Then I did three thin coats of Fight Like a Girl by PISTOL polish. Lastly I used two thin coats of Ciate Mattnificent Matte Top Coat (it came with a Chalkboard Nails Kit that I got as a gift). I used two coats because there was still some streaky shine after one. The accent nail is Oscar by Julep - three coats. I debated using a gold undie, but the glitter is so dense that by three coats it completely covers the nail. I topped it with my HK Girl Top Coat by Glisten & Glow, that I just got today, but I'll talk about that more in a different post (you can't really tell how shiny the top coat makes it because glitter is shiny anyway).

On a totally unrelated note, I noticed that for some reason on a lot of the pictures I was writing instead of I don't know where the @ came from....maybe I like the way it looks? Who knows.

Also...I broke my no-buy today....but it's for a really cool reason! And I will definitely be showing you guys when I get them :)

That's all for now.



  1. Go Loki! I love Fight Like a Girl -- it's a very unique color, and it looks great matte!

  2. Love it!!! I love Loki so much too, haha. I'm glad the theatres around here have started doing 8 PM showings rather than midnight, I'm getting old too! <3
