Look, if MAC’s going to come out with a Wonder Woman cosmetic line, I’m on board: still so vividly remember tearing around my neighborhood as a kid decked out in my Wonder Woman underoos with crepe streamers taped to the back neckline (a girl’s gotta have something fluttery and capelike when you’re at warp speed!).  And this red, MAC Obey Me?  Oh yeah, it’s a stunner, and now in my top favorite red polishes: great cream, spot-on sexy red, and flawless in 2 coats.

After I got that on I added a few layers (in light grades) using e.l.f.’s Golden Goddess, a pretty gold glitter with micros and bigger hex chunks that may or may not want to come out of the bottle.  Which yes, I know, is a Christmas color combo if there ever was one… doesn’t mean I’m not running around the house crossing my (invisible) magic bracelets!

Also, and totally not nail-related but still sort of awesome, here’s some quick wiki info on Wonder Woman’s bracelets on the tv show (this is me dating myself again):

On the live-action Wonder Woman television show, the two-part episode “The Feminum Mystique” establishes that the bracelets are produced from “feminum,” a metal found only on Paradise Island. When Nazi agents learn the truth from Wonder Woman’s sister Drusilla, they invade Paradise Island and force the Amazons to mine the feminum until the Amazons turn the tables on their captors. Removal of the bracelets leaves Wonder Woman vulnerable to attack but does not render her powerless or insane.

To create the bullet deflection effect, explosive charges were attached to the bracelets worn by Lynda Carter. She concealed triggering devices in her hands and, on cue, would trigger the devices to create the explosive effect.
