31 Day Challenge 2012! Day 23: Inspired by a Movie

Happy Tuesday! 

  So today is a challenge day and the girls and I are all equally behind haha! Today was supposed to be "inspired by a book". We are all a day behind so I am posting my day 23 "Inspired by a Movie" nails. It took me forever to land on this look. And when it all was said and done it felt like a copout lol! I was just not feeling this challenge theme for some reason. 
 So I sat at my desk and Aphrodite Lacquers Never Too Old immediately jumped out at me. It reminded me of Toothless from the movie "How to Train your Dragon". So I went for a "Toothless" inspired look. These nails are inspired by his dark, color shifting scales. 
 For this look I started with Four coats of Aphrodite Lacquers in Never Too Old. I will have swatches of this polish soon. For the stamping I used Bundle Monster plate BM224, which is a cool reptilian looking print. The colors I used for the stamp are Nicole by O.P.I Mer-maid for Each other and Iris my Case.  I applied both colors diagonally across the stamp and scraped in the same direction for a multi-tonal stamp. I then went back and stamped over the metallic shades, using the same stamp, in Cult Nails Nevermore to give the look and extra scale-y look.
 I topped my whole look off with some Seche Vite to bring out shine and smooth the surface. I really like this look and in person the colors were much more noticeable. 

 Now to go ponder what book I will use as inspiration for the next challenge prompt. Now don't forget to stop by my challenge partners Rie and Sam's to see their looks soon!
