Summer Challenge Day 23: Inspired by a movie


Summer Challenge Day 23: Inspired by a movie

I absolutely love movies. I watch a lot of them, and I always have. There are lots of movies that I’d love to be inspired by, but since I totally suck at freehand drawing, I felt as if I had to rely on stamping.

I googled and looked at hundreds of movie posters before I picked which one I’d go for. I ended up letting myself be inspired by “Black Swan”, which is an American psychological thriller from 2010.



I used Flormar’s white crème as my base. It’s called 400 and I used two coats for desired opaqueness. It was easy to work with like all the other Flormar polishes I’ve got. I stamped with Wet n Wild’s “Black Crème”, and I used Bundle Monster stamping plate #214.

Here’s the result:


I was quite pleased with it, but kept feeling that something was missing. I added a coat of Daring Digits’ “Silver Dragon”, which the creator herself describes as a silver “flakie” topper. The silver glitters doesn’t show much in real life, but you can see them here on this pic of the finished mani:


I didn’t add a top coat because “Silver Dragon” dried up completely smooth and shiny. 

Here's the Black Swan trailer in case anyone's interested :) 

 

There are other Danish girls who also did a “inspired by a movie” mani today. I’m very curious about which movies they chose, so let’s check their blogs out:

Stay tuned the day after tomorrow - same bat time, same bat channel – for nails inspired by a book!

  1. Black Swan is one of the scariest films I've seen: I had to close my eyes for at least a third of it lol.
    But I absolutely love this manicure, it fits the movie perfectly and features a stamp I've never used before so I may be inspired to give this a go myself!

  5. SEJT med sorte fjer!!! :-)
    Jeg har det lige omvendt. De sidste par år har jeg næsten slet ikke set tv/film. Og har flere gange overvejet at sælge TVét i stuen for det er aldrig tændt... Men stue uden tv er nsæten ligesom spisebord uden stole ;-)

    1. Forresten prøvede jeg igår at bruge wnw til stamping, men det blev helt bleg... Måske fordi den er helt ny, og skal være lidt tykkere inden den kan bruges?
      Jeg har jo den fra konad og der er til MANGE stampinger i sådan en flaske jo (jeg tørrer penslen af på flasken som når man lægger alm. lak. Og nogle gange dupper jeg kun farve på ½delen af motivet, fordi det man "kører af" med kortet kommer ned over resten af motivet :-)

    2. Jeg ser heller aldrig TV. Jeg ser alle mine film på DVD på min computer, eller også går jeg i biografen, hvis jeg ikke kan vente, eller der er en film, som jeg *vil* se på et stort lærred :)

      Min Wet n Wild er også stort set ny, så det kan ikke være alderen, der afgør det. Det lyder godt nok underligt.
      Jeg har ikke den sorte fra Konad, for den var udsolgt på den side, jeg købte mine Konad-lakker fra lige da jeg begyndte at stampe. Jeg tror ikke at jeg kommer til at købe flere Konad-lakker. De er simpelthen for dyre :)
