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!
