I loved loved loved James and the Giant Peach, both the movie and the book. I was a huge Roald Dahl fan when I was a kid, I prided myself on reading every single book he had written - ask me now to name one of the books other than this one and I couldn't, but I do remember loving them!! Without further ado, here is my spider themed James and the Giant Peach movie themed mani!!
For my pointer and ring finger I used: Finger Paints - Tiffany Imposter
For my middle and pinky finger I used: Wet n Wild - Black Creme and Finger Paints - Papier Mache for the the stripes.
I used acrylic paints for the details.
I also have a very exciting macro shot of Miss Spider's face for you. Remember the Easy-Macro that's up for grabs in Prize Pack A in my giveaway?!? Well, apparently they were getting traffic from my site and hadn't thought this was a market that could use the Easy-Macro, so they contacted me and asked me to take some photos they could use for their site. I was all over that, but only had purchased the one for my giveaway, so they offered to provide one for me so I could get them some photo's - how cool is that?!? This thing really is the coolest, you just snap it on to your phone, it doesn't cover the screen and if you have an iPhone 4S or 5 it will auto focus - so cool!! The only thing is, is that you can't use your flash, this isn't a huge problem, especially for those of you with light boxes. And the price is reasonable compared to some of the other macro lenses out there - I highly recommend it!! For more info on the Easy-Macro, click here! And if you want a chance to WIN one of these puppies, head over here to enter my giveaway - there's still time left to enter - closes October 31st at midnight!!
|I wish I had some amazing holo to show you with this thing, but I settled with this. I wish there weren't streaks in the green and cracks in the acrylic, I hope to take some more shots to show you soon!!|
