31DC2013 Day 29 : Inspired by the Supernatural < bloodlust >
When did vampires become sexy?
I blame Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt!
Day 29 of the 31 Day Challenge is "Inspired by the Supernatural". Thinking about what to do for this theme gave me all sorts of ideas for Halloween nails. ;)
Vampire films/ TV shows seem to be everywhere now. You have pretty boy ones, ferocious undead ones and those that look like they walked out of GQ magazine. One thing they all have in common though - the fangs and the whole blood sucking thing. So while I was inspired by this promo poster for the TV series "True Blood", this imagery is definitely applicable to all of those creatures of the night.
The focus of this image is on the lips and that's what I chose to do on my nails.
It looks like a simple lips design but I took a really long time trying to do the shading on the lips and tongue (which seems to have a life of its own, lol).
The nail polish is Revlon - Scandalous, a black jelly with regular sized + tiny sized magenta hex glitters. The jelly is a little on the watery side, with a tendency to flood the cuticles but I think the polish is so pretty! The glitters really give off that glow from within look! This is 3 coats with no topcoat.
