Summer Challenge Day 22: Inspired by a song
It took forever for me to figure out how to overcome this challenge. Before I actually got to it, I thought it would be easy. I mean, I love music and there are so many songs to choose between. But to actually make it match a manicure, that was so much more difficult than I ever imagined.
But after hours and hours of thinking, I picked an old song from 1986, namely Madonna’s “True Blue”. The song is from her third studio album, True Blue, and it deals with the feelings for her then-husband Sean Penn.
I used another Flormar polish for this challenge, namely number 446 which is a shimmery, yet a bit of a dusty blue. I used two layers for full opacity.
And since this is a love song, I added some hearts. I used an indie-polish from Daring Digits called “Love Hurts”, which is a clear base with small blue glitters and larger blue and black hearts.
There was no need to go fishing for the hearts, they were loaded on the brush each time I dipped. I did arrange them a bit on my nails though, since some of them wanted to play on my cuticles. That’s not the polish’s fault though, but mine alone :D
Here’s one coat over the Flormar, and covered with a layer of my all time favourite top coat, Poshé.
And here’s an indoor pic.
Here’s the official True Blue video. I think it’s so funny to watch videos made in the 1980s.
So that’s my mani inspired by a song. Did you like it? Do you like Madonna?
There are other Danish girls who also did a “inspired by a song” mani today. You should definitely check their blogs out to see what they came up with.
Stay tuned the day after tomorrow - same bat time, same bat channel – for nails inspired by a movie! I’ve begun thinking already!
