R2D2 Attacked By Ewoks

Oh yes, I did. I went there. In honor of the Blu Ray release of the Star Wars films tomorrow, I am doing Star Wars nails. And I wanted to do them differently than the ones I have seen around the internet. Most designs are just heads of different characters. So I selected a scene from Return of the Jedi in which poor R2D2 gets captured by the evil Ewoks. Poor R2D2, the 'bot can't get no respect!

Here you see Ewoks (including Wicket) capturing R2D2 and tying him to a couple of poles. That's got to be uncomfortable.

I used Sinful Colors "Seaweed" as the base polish. I thought that shade evoked the woodsy feel of the planet Endor quite well. The art was done in acrylic paints with my tiny paint brush, then 2 coats of Seche Vite to protect the design.

This picture is in the daylight. I think it might have been better to place the nameless Ewok (he may have a name, I just am not a big enough nerd to know it) on the pinky finger to balance the design better. But at 2am last night I was ready to be done with this manicure.

So if I had the money (and a Blu Ray player, oh yeah, and an HD TV) I would go out and get the set of Star Wars movies on Blu Ray tomorrow. Alas, I will just have to search for clips on YouTube since I spent all my money on nail polish.

May the Force be with you.


  1. Aaah, this is so amazing! I absolutely love the Star Wars! You're so talented!

  2. Thank you Sandra! This was really fun design to work on.

  3. Awesome job! Wicket looks great..he was always my favorite. I still have the stuffed one my Grandma gave me when the movie came out.

  4. Thanks Shally! I loved Wicket when I was little too. What a cool stuffed animal to have, and what a hip Grandma to give it to you!

  5. Wow! I'm really impressed! Awesome job :)
