31dc2012 - day 23

Hey! Did you think I was about to lose the challenge? Think again! It's 11:30pm, I've got a half hour to spare!

Today's theme is Inspired By A Movie.
I struggled all day to come up with an idea for this theme. Literally all day, I drove myself crazy trying to think of something.
I think the problem is that there are just too many movies you could possibly pick so you're on sensory-overload and nothing seems right. Or everything seems too over-done.

Finally I managed to settle on a design after consulting my (relatively small) stack of DVDs.

Juno! This used to be one of my favorite movies, I think I watched it about 100 times. It's been a while since I've last seen it though, but now I'm in the mood to watch it again!

Not only did I incorporate the recognizable orange and white stripes, but also Juno's hamburger phone! Haha! (Credit to my friend Emma for suggesting the hamburger!)

I really like the stripes! I can't handle fully-orange nails but I can handle them with stripes. Heh.
I did them using a stamping plate from Essence - the image is meant to be used for diagonal stripes but I used it sideways and still managed to cover my whole nail which made me really happy.

The orange, which is a perfect match for the Juno orange, is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Sun Kissed.
The stamping and the hamburger were done with Nail Art Diva stamping polishes.
I forgot to include one polish in the photo - Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails - Myth, which is the color of the hamburger bun.

And a final close-up of my hamburger phone. I did the black details with a sharpie because there was no way I had the patience to freehand that right now.

Now I want a hamburger phone!

Okay, holy crap, let's hope I can do tomorrow's challenge with a bit more time to spare. I'll put on my thinking cap straight away!


  1. I would never have thought t use a sharpie for detailing but it makes perfect sense. I wish I had thought of this when I did my nails earlier today- ha!

  2. This is so cute, I love it! Juno is one of my favs.

  3. I love the stipes, I will try to do this afternoon!

  4. This was the first ever film me and my fiance watched together! I love this so much! Might have to do it on our next anniversary!
