31 Day Challenge Day 29: Inspired by the Supernatural - Rocky Horror!

I realize this may seem a bit of a stretch, but aliens - especially those in the Rocky Horror Picture Show - definitely seem supernatural to me. I mean, there's something weird going on there, right? Must be supernatural!

I modeled today's nail art mostly after key costume pieces from this "cult classic" movie.

Rocky's tiny golden shorts and Brad's dorky tighty-whiteys:

 Dr. Frank-N-Furter's corset top and fishnets:


 As well as the Mouth from the opening sequence and poster:

Rocky's abs and shorts, Brad's high-waisted man-panties, Frank's corset and fishnets, and the poster-Mouth on my thumb.
 To begin, I did two coat of Nubar Classic Camel on the fingers, and two coat of Orly Le Chateau on the thumb. I then used two coat of Essie Matte About You on my thumb.


There was a lot of blending/mixing involved in everything else, but if you have any specific questions about how I did it,  please ask! The fishnet pattern was stamped with Konad Special Black, and the corset was black acrylic paint, with a bit of a cheap Forever 21 silver bar glitter in a black-tinted base.


The mouth was tricky, and took many layers to "pop" the proper red. It involved OPI Vodka & Caviar at the base, a bunch of other reds, and ended with China Glaze Ruby Pumps. The teeth were created with Konad Special White.

 Have you seen Rocky Horror yet? Go watch it now! Then you can paint your nails to match.
