In honor of the Catching Fire premiere, I recently painted my toes a very sparkly golden black (Maybelline – Twilight Rays), to match the “girl on fire” theme. Though I always imagine Catching Fire a bit darker than the golden browns I’d use for The Hunger Games, hence the black sparkle instead of brown sparkle. It’s the one on the very right:
And then I started to wonder, as I usually do, and thought, “Do other people paint their toes/nails with their favorite books, tv shows, and movies in mind?” I can’t be the only one! We may not be able to paint on specific images, but the color itself can be homage enough!
The left two I use for my Doctor Who nails – it’s a cobalt blue (Wet N Wild – Saved by the Blue) for the TARDIS, with the pinkish gold sparkles (Sally Hansen – Pink Grape Fruit) over the top for a galaxy effect.
The red (Maybelline – Paint the Town) is for Irene Adler (of Sherlock fame). It’s actually a bit darker in person, more of a blood red than that pinkish thing showing up in the photo.
And since it’s my current obsession, here’s a few colors I picked out for World After! It’s the same sparkly purple/gold from above, layered over a lilac (Sally Hansen – Lacey Lilac), plus a greenish blue (Sinful Colors – Gorgeous), as well as a navy (Maybelline – Blast of Blue) that has some purple undertones in the sunlight. They all look fantastic together, though I’m not sure how I’d incorporate them all in one go. Hmm… I think I know my project for the weekend. World After nails – here I come!
Anyone ever paint their nails as a quiet homage to their current obsession? How do you think I should pattern all the colors for the World After nails?
