New Favorite - As Seen On TV Theme Week

Today the theme for our TV theme week is New Favorite and I believe we are doing manicures about the same series with Mirka. Well, this show is such a good one so I'm not really surprised that it's the new favorite for both of us.

Of course I'm talking about True Detective. It did originally air already last year, but we are a bit late always here in Finland, so the first season is just now on our TV and we have actually still two episodes left to see from the first season. So if you have seen it already, don't spoil anything! ;)

I'm pretty sure everyone is already familiar with this series as it has been so highly praised, but if you haven't seen this yet, I highly recommend it. The show is really great one, but I'm also always quite a fan of good opening titles and True Detective's title is one of the best ones I have seen. The music and the images go so well together and it's really one of those titles that you want to watch every time eventhough it is quite long one. So as a big fan of the title, I really wanted to use it as an inspiration for my True Detective nails.

By the way, I had to google a bit while I was doing these nails and I happened to find this interesting article about the title. It was quite fascinating and it really helped me with my manicure too, so I thought I'd share it with you if you guys are interested.

I used quite a few of polishes for this manicure as well as some acrylic paint, though in the end this was still quite quick one to do. It was also my first time trying to do that water color type of thing (on my middle finger nail) where you first do some blobs of polish on your nail and then use some acetone to spread and thin the polish. It was really interesting and I like how it turned out, so I'll definitely need to try to use that in some other manicure too!

  1. Hyvä sarja me valittiin :) Ja hyvä tulkinta kynsillä myös, kyllä tietää heti mistä sarjasta on kyse! Nyt olen murheissani siitä, että miten sitä selviää ilman Matthewta taas :(

    1. Jesh, tänään pääsee viimein kattomaan viimiset jaksot ekaa kautta! Oon niitä tässä jo aikalailla oottanut. :) Matthew pääs kyllä vähän yllättämään, koska ennen tätä en tykännyt ko. näyttelijästä yhtään. Olin toki lukenut, että tässä sitä on kehuttu hirveesti, joten uskalsin alkaa katsomaan, muuten ois voinu jäädä kattomatta. :D Vähän pelottaa jo alkuun ne seuraavan kauden näyttelijävalinnat, niistäkään tyypeistä en juurikaan tykkään, mutta jospa nuo suoriutuu vähänkään yhtä hyvin kuin nää tän kauden tyypit, niin ehkä sit ei oo hätää. :)

  3. I've read many great reviews of this show, but have not seen it yet -- you know what, based on your nail art I just might sooner than I'd planned; your representation makes it look really intriguing! :)
