Inspired by a movie huh? There were so many possible designs that I wanted to do for this day. I had such a hard time narrowing them down. Finally I settled on a movie that I really love, American Psycho.
If you haven't seen American Psycho, essentially it is about a Wall Street executive who likes to violently murder people at night. He's completely psycho, but it's an awesome movie!
My inspirations for each nail were drawn from different points in the movie, and I actually watched the movie while I was doing them! Just in case anything else struck an idea.
My index nail is inspired by the cover of the movie. I used Cult Nails Evil Queen as my base and then did the details in It's So Easy Stripe Rite in Black, Red and White. I used NYC Sidewalkers for the knife. My middle nail is supposed to be blood splatter from when he does all those crazy killings. I used Milani White On The Spot as my base an splattered with China Glaze Vermillion and China Glaze Adventure Red-Y. My ring nail is swirl, because well he's psycho and I feel like that's a good representation of crazy. lol My pinky is a rose, because in one of the scenes a bunch of exec's are sitting around a table and there are numerous shots of bunches of roses, plus it fit in with the rest of the theme!
This movie is totally creepy, but it helps that Christian Bale, who plays the lead is smooookkiinn hot. Sooo good looking it's not even fair. :D I felt like since he's holding a knife in the cover I needed to grab a knife and use it as a prop...
...totally creeeeeppppyyy!!! On a side note, do not try using a knife as a normal prop! I was so scared I was going to cut myself somehow!
I also made this handy photo for pinning, in case you weren't sure what movie this was supposed to be! :)
Make sure you head over to The Lacquerologist to see what movie has inspired Emily today!
See you back here tomorrow morning!
