If you’re anything like us, you were probably impatiently waiting by your laptop for a glimpse of the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer. Just because the party ended on Sunday doesn’t mean you have to stop geeking out. Keep those nerd vibes going by DIYing your fave movies and shows on your nails! After touching base with Pokémon Go nails, we’re embracing the full spectrum by bringing you 17 ways to prolong the comic book weekend via geek-chic manis. Scroll below and check them out.
1. Star Wars: Embrace the dark side with these Star Wars digits. This mani is just what you need to hold you over until Star Wars: Episode VII arrives in 2017. You’re welcome.
2. Nintendo: If you’ve ever owned a Nintendo game system, you probably remember some of these characters. For a bit of nostalgia, rock these minimalistic character designs on your nails.
