Walkways Nails Rock!

October 14, 2012

Last Thursday my boyfriend's band Walkways performed with their first album, and I knew I had to make a mani for this occasions I've been waiting for so long.

Walkways is an Israeli alternative metal / rock band, founded in 2007. Driven with a goal to keep sane and evolve into more human and moral people while writing their music - the soundtrack of the highs and falls of their lives.

I can't be more proud of my boyfriend, and I can't deny the fact that having a rocker bf was a dream came true. I think he's a great guitarist and musician. All of the band members are so talented and creative AND hilariously funny, it's an honor to know these guys!

So I've planned this mani for a while, and lucky for me I had just enough fingers to place the band's name on them :) At first I planned on making silver half moons to go along with this black holo base, which turned out pretty crooked, then I tried several stamping plates, but the old stamping gods and the new weren't on my side (just a little joke, I'm watching Game of Thrones again). Actually I had really bad stamping day that day, and it took me a while to get why it wasn't working well - I sat by an open window, it was pretty warm and windy outside, and that's what probably dried out the stamps and polish quickly, leaving me no chance to apply them properly.
Finally I managed to work out the Bundle Monster plate with Essie No Place Like Chrome over Catherine Arley black holo 805 (which is not as holo as I wish it would be).
For the letters I used the wrap/foil technique - I applied white nail polish on a plastic bag, and let it dry overnight (few hours would do the job as well). Once it was dry, I cut the foil I made into these little letters with nail scissors. Then I placed them on the nails and applied Poshe top coat.
It was indeed a lot of work but it was worth it when I saw these happy and amazed faces of the band members and the friends :)
The show was pure awesomeness! It was amazing to see so many people that came to see the band, to jump and rock on with their great songs. I can't wait for the next time!

Be sure to check Walkways songs and funny "making of" videos on Youtube, like them on facebook, follow them on twitter and see the awesome photos from their last show.
Help me spread the word about this great band!
