31DC2012: Day 29, Inspired by the Supernatural

So guys, I'm not particularly proud of today's nails. Not in execution nor in subject material. I'm sure I will get a lot of flack for this. But I got the idea in my head and I just couldn't get it out. For inspired by the supernatural day, I chose to depict...

...glittery Edward.

Yeah. From Twilight.


Let me explain to you what you're seeing here. It's Edward, in the middle of a forest, standing on some rocks, exposing his naked upper half to the sunlight. Which, of course, makes him glitter like a disco ball. You can tell by his hair swoop that his head is turned to my right, his left.

I'm aware of the "real vampires don't glitter" camp, and I probably even subscribe to it despite having read the Twilight series. But, cmon. I couldn't resist vomiting glitter all over a tiny nail art version of Edward.


The background is Zoya Yara, Zoya Veruschka, and Essie Mojito Madness. The rocks are China Glaze Elephant Walk and then variations of that color made by mixing in white and black. Edward's shoes and hair are OPI Wooden Shoes Like to Know. His body is white, his pants are black, and the glitter is Lacquery Girl Band.


I wish I had a bit more time to spend on this nail art executing it more cleanly, but I really only had time to slap this together today. And I hope, regardless of your feelings about Twilight, that you got a little entertainment out of this. :)

Last year's supernatural nails are here, and challenge prompts are here.

  28. That's funny. I've never read the books and honestly I have no interest in doing so. However I feel that I need to watch the movie so that I know I'm not hating it in vain. I can't just blindly hate things like that!

  32. I'm on camp "vampires suck blood, not bleeeep" but this mani, I'm loving it and you made me laugh so hard. I have to say, it is ingenious that you chose glittery Edward I would of never think of that for the theme. Looking forward to see your manis fro this year's challenge. (considering doing it myself)
