Hello Hello everyone! I’m so excited about today’s manicure. I really am proud of myself for what I’ve created today! 🙂 So today’s manicure is to be inspired by a tv show. I have so many favorite tv shows, honestly, so this was hard for me to narrow down. But, I finally did narrow it down to a show that’s not even on tv anymore! 😛 The show was called “Dead Like Me” and it aired for 2 seasons. It was hilarious, and moving, and irreverent. If you’d like to watch 10 minutes of the first episode, here ya go (language warning):
I decided to riff off on the cover of the DVD case I have:
Really, this sums up the show – death in a irreverent way.
I lied – that’s not all of them. I mixed 4 other ones up for part of the manicure. For the sky, I started off with a base of Tidal Wave, then using a makeup sponge, I did a gradient of Sail La Vie, Tidal Wave, and Snow Me White:
Then using Cool Gray and a striping brush, I made the outline of the scythe. Blending a bit of Black on Black with Cool Gray, I added a bit of depth to the scythe. Then mixing about 4 different colors (to be honest, I couldn’t remember what they are now), I made brown for the staff of the scythe; I then lightened it up a bit with Snow Me White for shading. For the Reaper, I used Black on Black (obviously) for the majority of it, for the shading I mixed black with white and gray. FINALLY (lol) for the bubblegum bubble, I used Heartfelt; for shading I mixed Heartfelt with Snow Me White.
I have to admit, I love the ISH out of this manicure, and feel it’s my best work I’ve ever done. I would love to know what you think about it!
