A P!nk Reason

For Day 22 of the 31 Day Challenge, the theme was “song”. I’ve always had trouble with this one, since I can never decide if I want to do music in general, or the theme of a song, or something about the music video.

This year, I decided to be inspired by both the artist (P!nk) and the visuals of the song. I went with the song Just Give Me A Reason, which is depressing but I love the vocals! In the music video, P!nk sports her pale pink/white hair with a pink ribbon, and is wearing a pale pink lace dress. There are also a number of scenes featuring an off-white mattress. I just went with it!

My pinky, pointer, and thumb are all intended to be different bits of lace. My ring finger is a mattress (maybe, if you squint) although I should probably have used the quilting method. My middle finger is intended to be her hair, with the ribbon. I went a bit dark with the pink shade in the hair, but I still like it!

~ Light pink: Wet n’ Wild – Tickled Pink

This mani is brought to you by clear stampers (seriously, I double stamped/shadow stamped all the nails except my middle finger which is TRIPLE stamped)! And too many stamping plates. The lace is from plates BP-L008, BP-L020, and EdM01. The hair and ribbon are from BM-S108 and BM-317.  The mattress is from BM-209. Yikes! Hope you enjoyed, and go listen to the song!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

So, I know this is more of a movie than a song, but it was actually the song I had playing when trying to decide what to do for the “song” prompt for the 31 day challenge!

I went ahead any grabbed the closest thing I have to “For Audrey” from China Glaze, which happens to be I Need A Refresh-Mint by Wet n’ Wild. Every time I use this teal, I am reminded why I never use this teal. The brush is too fat, mine has messed up bristles, and the polish NEVER DRIES. Like, NEVER. I need to get For Audrey.

Regardless of my polish woes, this didn’t come out too badly! The color combo is pretty, and it is certainly song-inspired.

Hope you enjoyed! My surgical shelf exam is tomorrow and I am freaking out, so this post (and tomorrow’s) are very short!

Wicked

Today’s prompt was “song” but I decided to go with “musical” instead, because there are too many songs and I gave up trying to pick one to turn into a mani! That being said, I am (back) on a Les Mis kick (best musical ever) and wanted to paint at Les Mis mani but decided a French flag was dumb, so we get one of the many other musicals I love, Wicked!

IMG_9993

I have to say, the lighting in Defying Gravity is one of my two favorite light-induced moments in musicals ever (the other being Mirror Blue Night in Spring Awakening), but its easy to come up with something fairly straightforward to paint that is Wicked-related, so here we go!

IMG_9995

The inspiration came from a mani by Brit Nails, which was a great (and fast) idea to do most nails as a gradient! And since Elphaba is infinitely cooler than Glinda, there is no white-and-pink here.

Set Fire To The Rain – 31DC2014

It’s song day in the 31 Day Challenge! I had the hardest time picking a song this year…I wanted (again, like last year) to do Fireflies by Owl City, but realized a different song had been stuck in my head for days. I present the nail art interpretation of Set Fire To The Rain by Adele.

IMG_2156

I swear, I am trying really hard to learn all the lyrics to this song. I just love the way Adele sings, and for some reason I know most of her other songs and just missed this one! Oops.

IMG_6023

Honestly, this looked better in my doodles. It is harder to draw flames with my non-dominant hand than I had anticipated, and I should have moved the raindrop further down my nail so I didn’t run out of room for the fire! Live and learn.

Day 22: Song (Dark Side of the Moon)

When I saw today’s challenge, I was stuck. What song did I want to do? Then I realized that I wanted to bend the rules slightly and do an album…Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Prism and rainbow? Yes!

IMG_2637

I started this mani by painting my nail black, adding a white stripe up the middle, and painting a white chevron tip at the end. I then added a thing triangle for each rainbow color and added my prism (diamond, not triangle. Oops! I need more 3D bits).

IMG_4341

I rather like how this came out, although I don’t think its obvious what my inspiration was without the explanation! Oh well, shiny and rainbows. That’s good enough.
