Clutch Powers!

I went to a birthday party for my favorite 5-year-old and nephew.  His longtime obsession is Legos, and I had to do a polish for him.  It was very hard to photograph these, but I absolutely LOVE them.  I like that they actually represent Legos in the fact that you have to attach the heads to the body by putting my nails together.  Finn recognized them and it was great to show him!  Here is the photo these were inspired by--Clutch Powers and the Gang.






Clutch Powers:

Brick Masterson and Bernie von Beam:

Peg Mooring:

The base polish color is Orly Pixie Dust and over the finished manicure, I used Essie's Matte About You.  (I was kind of bummed it made the art blur a bit)

All Faces were painted with Essie Hello Yellow (as well as any other yellow that shows up in the manicure--hands etc.), Eyes were either So Easy Stripe Rite Black or Metallic Blue. And all white detail was also So Easy Stripe Rite in White

Polishes for Clutch: his coat is a mix of China Glaze Evening Seducion and In Awe of Amber.  With So Easy Stripe Rite in White and Black for his undershirt.  Pants were So Easy Stripe Rite in Metallic Blue.  

Brick: Face detail was China Glaze Millennium for his hat, Evening Seduction for the mustache, China Glaze Breakin' for his shirt with So Easy Stripe Rite Metallic Blue, Black.  China Glaze Awaken for his pants.

Bernie: Face Detail was China Glaze Breakin' for his hair and Orly Red Flare for his glasses.  His shirt was China Glaze Outta BoundsBreakin' for his pants.

Peg: Face Detail was China Glaze Lemon Fizz for her hair, Orly Red Flare for her mouth.  Her outfit is OPI Ulta-Mate Ruby.
