Captain Marvel Nails | NailsByErin

Hi everyone!

Today’s nail art is inspired by the upcoming movie Captain Marvel! Since I’m a big fan of Marvel movies, I am really excited to see this one (especially since it is the first female-led Marvel superhero movie!) I’ve been anxiously awaiting this new movie since Infinity War last year. I’m really hoping that Captain Marvel gives us some clues as to what’s to come in this year’s Avengers Endgame!

Since the red, blue, and gold pattern on Captain Marvel’s suit is so simple and recognizable, I thought it would be the perfect pattern to recreate on my nails.

Keep on reading to hear how I did this nail art and what polishes I used!

I started off with a true red base (Color Club “Cadillac Red”), then used a single chevron nail vinyl to create the blue section of the nail a little bit more than halfway down. The blue polish I used was Salon Perfect “Wild Blue Yonder”
Then, after a layer of top coat to make sure the blue was completely dry, I used the same single chevron vinyls to create two gold lines separating the red and the blue. I used Salon Perfect “Gold Leaf” for the gold accents. Another layer of top coat and that’s pretty much it!
Here’s a picture of the Captain Marvel outfit so you can see my inspiration. I would have loved to create the gold star in the center of her suit, but it wasn’t turning out the way I had hoped so I decided to keep it simple. I think it still gets the point across!

That’s pretty much the whole design! Super simple and easy to recreate. And if you don’t have nail vinyls, you can definitely freehand this pattern as well! Just be sure to keep your hand steady and take your time.
