31 Day Challenge - Day 22: Inspired by a Song

Right, I shall make my excuses first, and then I shall show you my nails.  This was supposed to be posted on Monday, and I actually did them on Saturday so that I was all ready and prepared to post on time for a change.  Monday I ended up going into London to meet some friends and family, so I didn't get a chance to post, and subsequently yesterday I was too hung over too function, and looking at a computer screen for long enough to write a post was well beyond my capabilities.  I hate alcohol.

But anyway, today I am hangover free and feeling good about the world again, so here are my day 22 nails!

The song I chose as my inspiration was The Girl by City and Colour (I'll post the video at the bottom of this post).

For the sky I used 2True No. 49 with a little bit of Barry M Berry Ice Cream sponged on just above the horizon.  The sea was made up of 17 Seabreeze sponged with OPI Mermaid's Tears, and the ship was painted using Barry M Grey.  Then I added some gems and pearls to represent the diamond rings and delicate strings of pearls he sings about.

Here's the video for those of you who aren't familiar with the song (I hope this is the video anyway, I can't actually watch it because I'm still using the apologies if it's something else entirely!).

Next up in the challenge, which I will hopefully post tomorrow, is inspired by a film.  I'm thinking Lion King...

    1. Thanks :) Although using a fast dry topcoat to stick them onto probably wasn't the best idea...slightly infuriating!

  2. Love that ship. You did an amazing job
