13 Days of January - Day 3 - Half and Half - Slade Wilson (Deathstroke) from Arrow

Hi everyone! It's Day 3 of the 13 Days of January Challenge and today's prompt is Half and half.

It went back and forth a few times while trying to decide what I wanted to do for this prompt, whether to stick to a simple half and half coloured design or to do something a little more original. I immediately thought of various villains such as 'Two-Face' from Batman or Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmations with her half and half black and white hair. But ultimately I decided to do nail art based on a more recent villain from one of my favourite TV shows, Slade from Arrow! 

You may have already seen that I'm a huge fan of the show and have already created some 'Arrow' nail art and it was fun to create a design based on another aspect of the show. Slade Wilson, a.k.a Deathstroke, wears a mask which is half orange and half black.

I started out with 2 coats of Kiko 275, one of my favourite black cremes, on all my nails except the accent nail, which I painted with 2 coats of Kiko 280, a simple orange creme. I then painted half the accent nail black and used black and white acrylic paints and a fine detail brush to add the facial 'features' to the mask.

This design was really simple but I like how it turned out. The mask accent nail really stands out and I think it represents this villain quite well! What do you think of it? Do you watch 'Arrow'?

I'm looking forward to see what everyone else has created for this prompt! Be sure to check them out below! 

Kiko polishes are available in Kiko stores in Europe (and more recently some locations in the US) and from
