The Meme Week Nail Art Challenge: Day 2 - Rage Faces

Welcome to the second day of the Meme Week challenge! Today's features rage faces, which are used in rage comics. There are many different types of rage faces, ranging from sadness to anger. The rage comics in which they are featured are usually about daily life occurrences. Often times they bring people closer together because of the protagonist's familiar situations. (And because it's sometimes just so fun to laugh at others' misfortunes.)

My interpretation of today's challenge features my absolute favorite rage faces! They are, from thumb to pinky: the troll face, the creepy me gusta face, the "fuuu" (extremely angry) face, the forever alone (you know who you are!), and "fuuu" from the "fuuu" rage face. My pinky was much too small for any rage face, and I also thought the "fuuu" would perfectly describe my frustration.

To do this mani, I resized pictures of the rage faces to fit my nails, printed them, and cut them out. I placed and adhered them onto my nail using clear polish and tried to smooth out the paper decals with a tweezer. I sealed the decals with 2 coats of topcoat. Unfortunately, the decals still wouldn't lay flatly on my curved nails, though Forever Alone was the most behaved. The smaller the decal, the better. However, I tried my best and persevered! Close enough! *insert corresponding rage face here* I originally wanted to paint the rage faces and then make my own polish decals (using the ziplock-bag-and-polish method), but those both failed. :( *insert "Okay" rage face here* I felt very mocked while doing this fail mani. It didn't help that the troll face kept catching my attention either.

I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls as my base and Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby for my pinky accent.
