Week 23: Inspired by a Film

It's about that time again folks...a post for the 31 Week Nail Art Challenge. Am I even on schedule with this thing still?? I had left you guys with my Week 22: Inspired By a Song nails giving a nod to Halestorm's "Love Bites (So Do I)" song and now comes Week 23: Inspired By a Film. I couldn't decide on which film I wanted to create nails for so I decided to take inspiration from Zooey Deschanel's Golden Globe nails in 2013 and this tutorial by HelloGiggles. I have created a manicure for this challenge that is truly inspired by a film....a film strip that is! Have a look:
Up next is Week 24: Inspired By a Book....hmmmm, I wonder what I'll do for that one! Check back and see.

By Special Request - Tahlia's Valentine's Day Nails

Last night, I received a call from my teeny tiny cousin in California asking me "What do you use for nails?" Obviously this means she's starting her nail polish/nail design addiction quite early and I was happy to answer her question! I decided that it was about time to make some Valentine's Day nails what with Valentine's Day coming in less than a week, so I'm making this post to both answer her question AND to show the nails I'll be rockin' for Vday. To answer Tahlia's question, to make little hearts on my nails I use a dotting tool that you can find at Sally's Beauty Supply (or an equivalent store) or online. I checked online and it looks like there's a Sally's in your area Aunt Les! If you can find this one it's the same set I have! My set is packaged a bit differently but it's the same product. Each dual-headed tool has dotters in different sizes so you can find the perfect size for Tahlia's little nails!

This is, of course, not my first rodeo when it comes to Valentine's Day nails. I've done Hearts in 2011Boyfriend-geared 2013,  Cake Pop 2014 nails. These are the nails that I've come up with for this year:

I hope you all have special plans to spend Valentine's Day with those who make you feel special :) Hopefully Tahlia will send me an email or text with a photo of her Valentine's Day nail art!
