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 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.

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.
