Nail Art: Great Military Monsters

For no reason other than it's impressive

Our old buddy Georgia is very clever and patient. She thought it would be funny to paint the five military leaders she admires the most (in terms of battlefield tactics, not social philosophy) onto her nails, so she did it and sent them to us.

WINSTON CHURCHILL

Yep, we've thrown Britain's biggest hero into this melting pot of murdering hate figures. And you know why? Because we're brave historical revisionists who resent his involvement in the mauling of Dresden and shudder at his opinions on gassing Africans. Also because bald heads are easier to draw on nails.

ADOLF HITLER

Hitler's the best. The best nail that is. That's because he has a Sieg Heil accessory. Napoleon should have had a hat really, shouldn't he?

NAPOLEON BONAPARTE

Here he is, the tiny Frenchman, looking a little ashamed of himself. As well he might.

CHAIRMAN MAO

Chairman Mao has lovely eyes. I might be letting my liberal veneer slip a little here, but all old Asian men make me feel calm. Even when it's the biggest murderer in history.

JULIUS CAESAR

The second most famous JC is a tough one because, unlike the others, there aren't any photos or proper paintings of him. So, what you're looking at here is a version of a sculpture probably. Or perhaps a version of JC in Asterix. The laurels are great.

Bye guys!
