Guilty Pleasure - As Seen On TV Theme Week

It's the second last day of the TV theme week and today the theme is Guilty Pleasure. I had two choices for this one and at first I thought I would use Pretty Little Liars as my inspiration for this manicure, since it would have been very suitable for this theme and truly a guilty pleasure. But somehow I couldn't figure out what kind of manicure I would like to do inspired by it, so I went with my second chance and chose to do this manicure based on Revenge. 

Now, Revenge might not really be as clear guilty pleasure tv show as Pretty Little Liars would have been, but I think it's still quite suitable for this theme. It's quite entertaining mix of modern soap opera, drama and action, and it even has some moments where you could take it at least somewhat seriously. Then again some of the plot twists are just silly and quite often there are those classic soap opera moments where someone you think is dead returns or the relationships and affairs seem to go around quite a bit, so therefor it truly fits this theme. It might be quite well made (at least most of the time), but I'd say that it's still quite a guilty pleasure if you think about it. But then again, there's nothing wrong with that and we all need some guilty pleasures in our lifes, right?!

I wanted to keep this manicure quite simple since pretty much all the other manis that I've made for this week have been quite complicated and included quite some work or at least some freehand nail art. So this time I decided to go with just a simple gradient and nothing else. The colors for this gradient were quite clear, they are of course from that Revenge title with the red sky and the almost black sea. If I've been praising some other titles this week, Revenge's title isn't really anything special and it's not very well made either, but I still wanted to use it as an inspiration for this manicure since I think the colors really suit the series and are quite obvious too.

For this mani I first painted my nails with one coat of A England Perceval. Then I did the gradient with Perceval and Orly Iron Butterfly and finished the mani with one coat of top coat.

I'm totally in love with Perceval and I can't believe I haven't used it before for anything else than little nail art. It's a stunning red and so awesome as it coveres pretty much with just one coat. I love that shade and the finish which gaves it a look like it's shining from within.

    1. Thank you so much! :) I think gradients aren't too hard to do, so you just need some practice and I'm sure you'll master them as well. :)

    Mikähän tässä muuten taas oikein on, kun sun postaukset on tykänny ilmestyä bloggeriin monen päivän viiveellä, eilen illalla taisi tulla kolme kerralla näkyviin ja tämä ei oo päivittynyt vielä ollenkaan sinne asti :O

    1. Kiitos Emilia! <3 Ja tosiaankin, viihdyttäväksi miäkin tätä sarjaa kuvailisin. :)

      Joo, oon tietoinen itsekin tuosta ongelmasta ja se on ollut itseasiassa jo pidemmän aikaa. Ilmeisesti nämä ajastetut postaukset sotkee asiaa vielä lisää ja ne saattaa ilmestyä tuonne bloggerin feediin päivienkin viiveellä. :/ Normaalisti ilman ajastusta tulevat myös viiveellä, mutta se on sentään yleensä ollut vain joitakin tunteja. En oikeen tiedä mitä tälle voisi edes tehdä, on kyllä taas kerran niin ärsyttävä ongelma!

  5. Oih, vautsi, todella kauniit kynnet kaikessa yksinkertaisuudessaan! :) Revenge on mielestäni ihan okei sarja, ekasta kaudesta tykkäsin kympillä mutta ne on venyttäneet sen vähän turhan pitkäksi, joten en jaksa olla siitä enää kovin innoissani sen kaiken sekavuuden yms vuoksi. Mutta onhan se nyt ihan hyvää viihdettä kuitenkin :D
