Percy Jackson Nails by Azarahael-Morganti Percy Jackson Nails by Azarahael-Morganti
These are my Percy Jackson inspired nails. Each nail represents one of the main 12 Greek gods or goddesses (Zeus, Hera, Demeter, Ares, Apollo, Artemis, Poseidon, Aphrodite, Athena, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Hermes [and Hades]).

Top from left to right:
A rose for Demeter
A moon for Artemis
An owl which is the symbol of Athena
A heart for Aphrodite
A dove which is the symbol of Hera

Bottom from left to right:
A lightning bolt for Zeus
A staff for Ares (the tip of the staff chipped off)
A Trident for Poseidon
A sun for Apollo
A skull for Hades

Each of the fingers corresponds to it's match on the other hand. The pinkies are Demeter and Hades. Demeter's daughter, Persephone, is Hades's wife. Ring fingers are the twins, Artemis and Apollo. The middle fingers are Percy and Annabeth's parents. Index fingers are the lovebirds Aphrodite and Ares. Thumbs are Hera and Zeus.

I am now aware of this. I hadn't done my research before! Sorry. 
Someday I hope to do an updated version of these and do Hera and Aphrodite correctly.

I know, I know. Many inaccuracies. I think my brain went something like "Hera = marriage = weddings = doves" and that's why that happened. I'm going to do another version of this eventually. I just have to a. find the time and b. actually do it.

HOW DID YOU DO THIS??? O.O

Let's see... I did these just on my bare nail. You could use a base coat if you wanted, I suppose.
Basically time and patience and a toothpick and a pushpin. I glop nail polish on a paper and then dip the toothpick/pushpin in and draw. Some are outlined in glitter which was just a nail art glitter polish. The roses... Roses are easy? It's hard to explain but once you get the hang of it, it's fairly easy. Start with two half-circles that sort of ying-yang into each other (if that makes sense) and then just add more half circles/curves around them and make them slightly imperfect by adding points, making one side thicker... I worked off of reference images for things like the owl and the skull and the dove. Really it's just a steady hand and a pokey thing.

Haha!! It just takes patience, really. You should put in a movie you've seen a bajillion times and just sit back and go to work. :)

HOLY CHIZ! Awesome! I'm going to force my friend against her will-I meeeean ask her politely to do something like this for me. She's good with nails.
If thats okay, of course.

Haha, thanks!
And that's totally okay! Go for it! :) I often troll DA looking for ideas for nails.
Oh! And you should stay tuned because I'm going to do an updated version with some different designs and more nail art rather than a single icon on a bare nail. I've got some ideas, but I'm still working on it. If you've got any ideas, you should share!!

Welcome!
XDD
Sweet! I wish I had some ideas, but I'm not that creative. Maybe you could do your nails (This isn't exactly like the first idea) like the beads on a Camp necklace. My friend made me a copy of Annabeths necklace for my birthday and it was awesome.
Just a suggestion XD

Oh, that'd be cool!!! I'd have to invent more beads though... I'll have to try that!
Also, I did a random fun fdkslaajfhh on my friend Haylie's nails. I just need to photograph them... So keep a look out!
Thanks for the suggestion!! I'll have to try that!

Thanks a lot! Uhh, I use toothpicks and the sharp ends of pushpins dipped in nail polish. It takes time, but I don't mind. The results are worth it to me. :)
Again, thanks a lot! :D

not to be a know-it-all or anything but Hera's power sine is a peacock or a cow and Aphrodite is a dove or a olive branch, but other then that grate job.

:iconazarahael-morganti:
Azarahael-Morganti Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2011
Haha, I think a peacock would be much harder to do, though! Plus, to me doves are white and symbolize purity and marriage... So to me it seemed like a no-brainer. I guess I need to do my research! And Aphrodite deals in love... And hearts are kinda universal for love....
But.
Anyway! I'm actually thinking about doing an updated version of these! Any ideas?? I want the new one to be more loud and bright and use the whole nail rather than just a one or two color icon. I've kinda got an idea brewing, but only for Hera and kinda because I now know that her animal sign is the peacock.
I'd love to hear your advice!
