So, on to inspired by a movie!
I was brainstorming with my boyfriend and telling him how I had some movies in mind that I liked but that I didn't know how I would translate into a mani. His mind immediately went to Star Wars like I'm sure many a boyfriend's mind would, but I loved the suggestion because I love the movies too.
Originally I had plans to do four R2D2s and then an accent nail C3PO, but my boyfriend was also involved in the planning and he wasn't going to let this opportunity pass by without taking full advantage of it. He decided that he wanted to do one hand themed around the Galactic Empire (the bad guys) and one hand themed around the Rebel Alliance (the good guys). I liked the idea but told him I didn't think it would work because I can't do complex nail art on my right hand with my non-dominant hand doing the painting.
I don't know if you will believe it, but he suggested that I let him do the work on my right hand. I said, "Uh, YEAH," and we made plans to get together to knock this out.
I did my left hand on my own, because that is the hand that allows me to paint with my dominant hand. Here's the one that I did myself:
|Rebel Alliance insignia, C3PO, Chewbacca, R2D2, green lightsaber|
(ask me if you want to know colors used - there are just a lot so I'm leaving them out for now)
This was one of my most time consuming and intricate manis to date, but it's totally worth it as I love the results. However, I am super bummed that it has to come off so soon already!
Here is the hand that my boyfriend helped me on. He did Darth Vader, the stormtrooper, and part of the insignia. He was pretty nervous about "messing up" but I think he did an amazing job. These are the first nails he has ever painted on, can you believe it? I was so proud.
|Red lighstaber, stormtrooper, Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Galactic Empire insignia|
(again, ask me if you want to know colors used)
Also, it's important that you know that I have been making the lightsabers fight each other. I bash my pinkies together and make the lightsaber woosh/smash noises as I do it. Super mature. Can you blame me!?
I hope you all like this as much as I do! I will be so upset to take it off tonight or tomorrow morning! :(
