We are more excited than you could believe about the up and coming Suicide Squad movie, and if you can’t wait just like we can’t wait, you’re going to love these Suicide Squad nails.
Featuring Harley Quinn, the Joker and a few others along the way, we can’t think of a better way to show our love for the soon-to-be released movie, and the amazing characters in it!
21 Suicide Squad Nails
1 – Black And Red Suicide Squad Nails
Here’s the classic black and red colouring that we’re used to seeing with the classic Harley Quinn look. Combining squares and diamond shapes, it encapsulates the classic HQ perfectly.
These nails are easily recreated using red and black polish and nail tape – use the tape to mark off the sections, waiting for each coat to dry before adding the tape to make sure you don’t make any boo-boos!
2 – Black, Red + Pink, Blue
This look mixes the two Harley Quinn colours perfectly – the black and red with the pink and blue. We must admit, we love these Suicide Squad nails an awful lot.
The gradient in these nails is a lot easier to achieve than you’d first think and you just need to use those triangular shaped makeup sponges you have lying around … a clean one obviously. Paint a white stripe, a relatively large one, and overlapping it just slightly, add your blue or pink stripe. When you press the sponge onto your nails, the gradient will appear quite nicely.
3 – Spiked Suicide Squad Nails
We can’t think of a better way to wear our Suicide Squad nails than with these super-spiked stiletto Harley Quinn nails, and the best way to get your talons this super shiny is with a gel polish finish.
You don’t need to go to a nail salon to get these gel finishes either – you can buy little kits at home and in our experience, as long as you follow the instructions properly and don’t touch them before they’re dry and properly finished, they do actually work quite well and last a while. Perhaps not as long as the ones you would have had in the salon, but not bad regardless.
4 – Suicide Squad Characters
These Suicide Squad nails have a little bit more detail, and these ones are likely to be more personalised due to their hand-painted nature. The good news about nails like these is that you can customise them and change them as much as you like to suit you – everything to the characters you use and the colours you mix together.
We tried our hands at this once but found them too difficult and gave up. This is a design best left to the professionals we think.
5 – Blue + Red Harley Quinn Nails
Another great idea although it doesn’t use the classic Harley Quinn colours. These are instead using a beautiful bright red and blue mix, almost making them look a little ‘Captain America’ inspired.
The diamond patterns on these keep them Suicide Squad nails, and we especially like the gold detail that has been added behind them.
6 – Blue Suicide
With the actual Suicide Squad label on these, they’re pretty detailed and will therefore need to be done by someone with a super steady hand, but as far as Suicide Squad nails go, these have got to be one of the best.
What do you think? Would you be brave enough to rock these super villain beauties?
7 – Diamonds + Checkers
Anther black and white classic Harley Quinn look, there’s a combination of designs here, keeping them fun and fresh.
You’ve got the red background with black diamond formation, black and red checkers, and those diamond interlinked formations over a white backdrop. Square tips round it all off, and we think they’re pretty damn fabulous. How about you?
If you click on the photo, you’ll find a full tutorial for these nails, and you’ll see they’re not as tough as you’d think.
8 – Harley Goes Bang
Do you like the old-school style of Harley Quinn? The red and black ones? Well these cartoon Suicide Squad nails are perfect for you, complete with ‘Bang’ speech bubble.
You can buy Harley Quinn themed nail transfers for these beautiful designs, and we’d recommend starting by looking at Etsy and Amazon.
9 – Rhinestones + Ha-Ha’s
There’s the red and black diamond shaped, white and black stripes, and some nail accessories in the form of rhinestones too – these Suicide Squad nails have everything you could possibly want on your talons.
If these are a little too much for you, tone things down a bit by just picking one or two of the designs and going with those. Maybe all stripes with the exception of just the one featured nail with the red and black diamond shape? Customise them how you like – you could have them all black and white ha-ha’s if you liked!
(That’s what we’re currently thinking about getting … )
10 – Sophisticated Suicide Squad Nails
Another red and black design but these ones are much more grownup and much less cartoony. If you wanted a sophisticated way to rock Harley Quinn nails, these are definitely the ones we’d recommend.
You have a vertical line separating the red and black here, more red than black, and white dots have been used to make the separation between the two. Nice and simple, only takes a few minutes, and looks the part. Perfect if you ask us.
11 – Joker – Big + Bolshy
If you like your nails big, bold and bolshy, these Suicide Squad nails combine the delights of the Joker and Harley Quinn together, mixing the red and blacks with the green and purples commonly associated with the Joker’s character.
Add a few ha-ha’s and a couple of comic book ‘Bangs’, and you have the perfect villainous nails for the ultimate supervillain.
12 – Harley Quinn + Joker Falsies
We found these falsies on Etsy, and we can’t help but think these ones would be the easiest ones – they’re just stick-on false nails. No painting or hassle required.
We love the way the rhinestones have been used here, and you could adorn purple nails with green stones to recreate the joker, and red or black rhinestones on the opposite / alternate backdrop too.
13 – Joker + Batman
We’ve added Batman to the Suicide Squad in these super awesome nails, and we love those Batman decals used over the yellow-gold shimmer.
We also love the dark purples, reds and greens used in the pointed nails for the Joker. A great combination if you ask us.
14 – Glitter-Tastic Joker Nails
A slightly different way to look at Suicide Squad nails, or rather, the Joker nails. It’s a purple glitter backdrop and over the top, pale green and pastel yellows have been used to create a lined zig-zag shape.
It’s a look we probably wouldn’t have thought about using if we were dressing up, but definitely one that works nevertheless. It feels as if we should dress up as the Joker soon just to rock these glitter-tastic delights.
15 – Vintage Harley
More nails found on Etsy – click the link if you want to take a closer peek. These ones are vintage and slightly distressed decals of the classic red and black Harley Quinn, perfect if you want an actual scene on your nails, or something a little more lifelike.
Plus, everyone knows that using transfers and decals is much easier than painting your nails yourself. No one needs to know you faked it.
16 – Ha-Ha’s + Diamonds
Another look incorporating both the Joker and Harley Quinn, we’ve got those purple and greens, and those blacks and reds mixed together again. Diamond and ha-ha’s are the perfect way to create Suicide Squad nails if you’re not great at people or faces.
You’d know instantly what these nails were for without having to put too much time and dedication into it. Perfect answer.
17 – One Hand Dedication
For when you can’t decide whether you’re in the mood for the Joker or Harley Quinn, why not dedicate one hand to each? There’s one hand of nails dedicate to the black and red classic HQ design, and in keeping with the Suicide Squad nails theme, the Joker and the purple and green classic design has been used on the other hand.
Pointed nails just complete the look, but you could have these designs on shorter nails, and coffin nails also.
18 – Movie Scene Nails
Another classic we found on Etsy (and you can click for more information), these Suicide Squad nails are scenes of the actual up and coming movie, due out in September of this year.
Featuring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jared Leto, we can’t wait for the movie and to keep us going until we can go and see it a hundred times, these nails are the perfect answer.
19 – Short Suicide Squad Nails
If you have short nails, you can still rock Suicide Squad nails, or rather, Harley Quinn nails, another one keeping that classic red and black look.
This time, a grey backdrop has been used for the HQ face, and we actually think the black and red shades really pop out against that paler color.
20 – Pink + Blue Harley Quinn Nails
Featuring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, these pink and blue nails are more like the Harley Quinn we’ll be seeing in the movie due out late this year. Although classically red and black, she seems to have undergone a makeover, which has left fans divided.
We love these pink and blue Harley Quinn nails, and we’re adding these the first on our list of nails-to-do.
21 – Bricked-In
Another classic look, it’s HQ in her black and red jester get-up, and we really like the backdrop of the brick wall, a lever little feature that brings the entire hand of nails together.
For when you want a bit more detail, there’s nothing wrong with spreading the design over the entire hand. This one is a classic example.
