Lights, Camera, Action!

Hiya!!  Day 4 of Let's Do The Time Warp Challenge - lights, camera, action!  Nails inspired by a nostalgic movie, song or piece of literature.  Warning, this is going to be a long post - I ended up doing two looks for this day PLUS, it's Polka Dot Day for the 31 Day Challenge - so scroll down if you've got some time!!

My original idea was to do a mani inspired by the dress Cha Cha in Grease wore to the dance.  I LOVE that dress and I love that character even though she had such a small part.  My favorite scene is at the end of the dance with Danny, she's waving the trophy in the air and lifting up her skirt in time with her dance moves.  Grease is one of my all time favorite movies, I can watch it over and over and not get sick of it.  I even loved Grease II - the scene in the bomb shelter - LOVE!  To see what inspired this mani, click here or here.

On to look number two.  As you may know, I love doing nail art - it's so small and fiddly and I thrive on doing small fiddly things!  So, I was bummed that my original idea didn't have heavy nail art.  Another of my all time fave movies is Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Bueller?  Bueller?  Bueller?  My fave scene is when Cameron is lying in bed and sings "when Cameron was in Eygpt's land, let my Cameron go."

Pointer finger is Ferris' classic sweater vest, the middle finger was supposed to be Sloane's glasses she wears , but the pink is more like Ferris' sister, the ring finger is Cameron's shirt (I chose not to tempt Detroit Red Wings logo, too detailed!), the pinky is self-explanatory and the thumb is Ed Rooney's suit.

Did you come here for Polka Dot Day for the 31 Day Challenge?  I can't disappoint y'all, so here's the one shot I managed to get of my dotticure.  This was inspired by Diana over at  Nails By Diana  - she did the most fabulous mani for Day 7 of the 31 Day Challenge - Black and White - check it out here!!  This girl has the most AMAZING nails - I love the shape and if I could, I would pull this off NOW!  She's also super duper talented, so please give her some LOVE!!
