Avengers Assemble!

So, I'm not sure if you know this about me, but I'm a bit nerdy. I think most of it just radiates from my boyfriend, and because I am in such close proximity all the time, I have happened to catch it. One of our shared loves is Marvel (and Batman, but that's it for DC) so opening night of Avengers was a pretty big deal to us. 
He and I drove two hours to attend an Ultimate Marvel Marathon, where AMC played all five Avengers related movies before premiering the movie at midnight. The event started at 11:00am and ended around 2:30am when the midnight showing got out. It was probably five o'clock when we got home and got to bed.
I'm tired today, but it sure was worth it.

To compliment this amazing movie marathon, I, of course, had to paint my nails. 
I chose Cap and his shield as my inspiration. 

I used China Glaze Frostbite and Ruby Pumps with an Art Deco striper for the white. Shown with and without flash, respectively. 

So, what about you? Any Marvel fans out there see the midnight premiere? Any non-US fans see it last week? What did you think?

Sometime this weekend, I'll be posting the results of my nail art contest, so keep an eye out!


  1. Love it. I am just working on an avengers design right now. I am not that into it but my cousins husband is obsessed. Going to try and finish this weekend. Yours looks great.

  2. His shield makes for perfect mani fodder. Well done!

  3. We love Marvel too, but I tell everyone I'm a geek, so it's ok. We didn't get to go to the midnight showing though...something about having to be responsible adults and go to work on Friday...I don't get it. :) But here's a link to my Avengers mani, if you wanna see. BTW, Joss Wheden rocks.

  4. I was nerdy before meeting my husband but have a whole new strain of nerdy since meeting him, so I know how that goes. I like your Captain America nails. I'll probably see the movie when it is released on blue ray.

  5. Great blog ;) I Follow U ;)
