4 Clever Superman Nail Art Ideas

The recent release of Man of Steel has been striking quite the interest in Superman nail art, and we've found four clever ways to deck out your digits with the DC Comics hero. The above look from honeymunchkin features four nails with a belt design and an accent nail complete with the superhero's famous coiffure. It's a quirky way to showcase Superman's secret identity.

For the more advanced nail guru, try creating a pop-art nail look like this one from nail artist Naomi Yasuda. The intricate design features the Superman symbol along with comic book-inspired motifs for a visually stunning result. To cheat the style, try cutting out nail-shaped sections from an actual comic book, applying a generous coating of clear nail polish to set your work. For more inspiration, just keep reading.

April Brooks of Concrete and Nail Polish developed this sparkling manicure with Zoya PixieDust (£10.50 a bottle) for a glistening matte finish. The off-centre Superman logo on her ring finger adds more interest than a standard logo painted right in the middle of the nail. Plus, the traditional Superman shades, when paired with an unexpected pop of shimmer, makes for one truly knockout look.


For a nail design inspired by both Superman and his alter ego, Clark Kent, Cara and Kate of Miscellaneous Manicures conceptualised an adorable nail art design featuring both characters. From Clark's black-rimmed glasses to Superman's spandex uniform peeking out under that signature white button-down, this alter-ego manicure is twice as nice.
