Ahhhhh don't you just love it when a plan comes together? I have spent the last few days mulling over what film i was going to dedicate this mani to for our challenge on crumpets nail tarts on facebook. I swung from doing the exorcist, childs play or IT. For creative purposes i was just a smidge away from doing IT....i think i will still give this a go bit later....but i so wanted to do the exoricst but was so short of ideas. I didn't really want to do the stardard screams or saws...or even the craaaazy chucky because these are usually the easiest to create an i wanted a challenge.....i got it!!
I wish i could take full credit for the idea of this mani, but credit where it is due and it has to go the the incredible Robin Moses. She does some of the most incredible nail art i have seen, and when i saw the pics of a manicure very similar to this i had to try it....i am so bloody glad i did...i friggin love these!!
From start to finish i knew they were going to be something i can be proud to post which is just fantastic because when i first saw this done i really thought i wouldn't be able to do it good enough....now i just feel like doing a victory dance around my paint laden living room...wooop!
The exorcist was always a film my parents were reluctant to let us kids watch....we kinda watched horrors from quite a young age...freddie was always a funny figure to us rather than scary, so when they banned this from us it just made us want to watch it more.....i remember sneaking it on when they wernt looking and quickly proceeded to sh*t myself. When Regan was a fully possessed, head spinning, vomitting , friggin manic it just about terrified me enough to rush upstairs and hide under the covers with my glow worm to protect me!! So whilst this isnt a slasher blood and guts kind of film, i think these films are true horror scary films...not some of the crap they make today. Classics all the way my lovlies.
I hope you guys enjoyed my little film manicure....feel free to tell me what your favourite scary movie is (ohhh isnt that what they say in scream?!
