It's the second day of the As Seen On TV theme week and already I have at least somewhat fail manicure to share with you guys... Oh well, ideally I would have liked to redo this one as it didn't turn out how I imagined it would, but I didn't have time for that, so I'll just have to go with this one.
Today our theme was Old Favorite and there were quite a few old favorites to choose from, but I decided to go with Bones. I'm quite into these types of series, I think they are good entertainment even if they aren't really any masterpieces. Bones is one of my all time favorites in this crime procedual drama genre, but I like quite a few others like Criminal Minds, all the C.S.I series, Law and Order (especially Special Victims Unit), Murdoch Mysteries and of course all the classic ones like Matlock and so on.
I think I've seen pretty much every episode of Bones and I love the series especially because of great characters. So it was quite obvious choice for this theme and this time I wanted to do it a bit differently and use my manicure to appreciate some of the great characters, or should I say one especially.
SPOILER ALERT: If you are watching Bones but haven't seen any of the season 10 episodes, you shouldn't probably read the rest of this post. I just wanted to give you heads up since I don't want to spoil anything from anyone. You can of course just look at the pictures. ;)
So yeah, this is my Bones manicure. Doens't look like Bones you say? Ok, I might need to explain this a bit. Like I said, I wanted to do this mani about the characters and I especially wanted to pay tribute to the character of Lance Sweets. Sweets faced quite tragic ending in the season 10 premiere and as he was probably one of my favorite characters, I really wanted to use him as inspiration for this manicure. Sweets meant that I of course had to have some candies on my nails and since I don't own any stamping plates with any candy images, I had to do some freehanded sweets. They didn't really turn out too great but hopefully you can still see what they are supposed to be. I didn't want to cover my nails with just some sweets, so I thought it would be great idea to include Daisy to the manicure too since they were clearly meant together and as we learnt in the same episode, Sweets and Daisy are having a baby. So obviously I then tried to paint some daisies on my nails too and they didn't really turn out too great either... Yup, as I said, the whole mani didn't really turn out like I had imagined.
But atleast I got to do my Sweets manicure as I had planned. By the way, I have to say that while no one can ever truly replace Sweets, the new character Aubrey is fantastic and he brings the same type of humour to the mix than Sweets did. I love him already and I think he is one the best replacements ever.
I used Powder Perfect Faded Jeans (3 coats) as my base color for this manicure. The sweets and the daisies I painted with acrylic paints.
How about you, do you watch Bones or some other similar crime series?
