Nail Crazies Unite - Music

Hey there!  I am currently sitting at the airport waiting for my flight to Toronto for the first ever Indie Expo Canada and I figured I might as well use my time to get today's blog post up.  Music is the theme for this week but I actually wore this design ages ago.  April 20th to be exact.  I remember that because I did them for my friends birthday because he loves Michael Jackson.  Not everyone gets their very own birthday mani so I hope he knows that makes him pretty special, haha!

For these I started with Pretty Serious Looks That Kill.  I was trying to go for the color of Michael Jackson's leather jacket from the 80's but I think it might have been too dark a red.  To get my black stamping to show up I had to have these photos pretty bright.

On my accent nails, I have an homage to his iconic sequins glove.  I used Zoya Trixie as the base and then did glitter placement with silver holo glitter.  It was pretty darn sparkly!

And the stamping (the part that actually makes this a music-themed mani) is all from Born Pretty BP-47 in Mundo de Unas Black.  I do love the Born Pretty stamping plates.  I just ordered some new ones yesterday...now to just wait what feels like forever for them to actually show up.

That's all for today's post.  I guess I'll use my remaining waiting time to start making an Indie Expo shopping list, even though I'm seriously scared of how much I want.  Is anyone else going?  If you are, I'd LOVE to meet you!!


'Til next time...
