Yes....I am a Twilight fan.
No...I'm not one of "those" fans! I don't scream every time Jacob appears on screen shirtless. and I don't melt into a puddle every time Edward ways something charming. I really enjoy the books and movies, but my life doesn't revolve around them!
OK! Wanted to get that out of the way before I got all the "OMG you like Twilight???? What's WRONG with you!!!" comments! LOL
Today's mani I did back when the movie was getting ready to come out. I had on a base of China Glaze "Jitterbug" and it struck me that it reminded me of the ominous black and grey cloudy background of the poster. Just that dark grey, before dawn kinda color.
Here is my inspiration:
I wanted to try to recreate that actual eclipse going on on the poster.
So after the base of Jitterbug, I slapped a hole reinforcement on 1 nail.
Using China Glaze "Millennium", I stamped just along the edge making sure I was thicker in the "middle" and thinner as I went out.
Then I broke out a burgundy-wine jelly franken I have and stamped that on along the edge as well, making sure to leave the appropriate spots bright (with just the Millennium showing).
Next, I removed the hole reinforcement, and painted over the area that it has covered with Wet and Wild "Black Creme".
Then, just to add interest, I painted over jitterbug on my pinky with the wine jelly polish.
Prepare your self for a terrible, blurry, not enough lighting picture!
(yes, I think I have been infected by something that has rendered me incapable of taking a decent picture!)
I'm not gonna lie and say I loved it...I didn't, but it was ok, so I figured I's share!
This was a "Wow, that looked WAY better and easier to do, in my head" kinda things!
Well, that's it for today!
HOPEFULLY I'll find time to get something up again tomorrow!
If not, then I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
