James Bond Skyfall inspired nails

November 12, 2012

Today's mani is inspired by James Bond Skyfall movie, and I actually would like to dedicate this to Walkways - my boyfriend's band, who just released their Skyfall cover music video a few days ago.

Last week I was on the set with the band, shooting this awesome video which is now live on YouTube, and I have to say it was a unique and fun experience which I was really happy to take part of. We got up before the sun rise, and headed for the location where the shooting was taking place. I have never done something like this and didn't know what to expect, but it wasn't as easy as I thought. Eventually we got some awesome shoots, and the band worked on the video with some awesome guys that made it all happen, and the result was awesome! Walkways cover for Adele's song Skyfall turned out to be a great success, and I can say I'm very proud to be a part of it :)

For this mani I used few known elements from James Bond which are the 007 logo with the gun, gold, black and white colors, and a wavy stamp.
I started with two coats of white polish (Chic White Flag), then stamped with the wavy stamp from Nailz Craze NC02 plate using Wet n Wild Black Creme, and applied a top coat with small holographic glitters (GK 734A). When finished, I applied Poshe top coat.
For the ring finger I used two coats of Skinfood Mocha Gold, and then added the 007 logo. I prepared the logo sticker ahead, using the diy foil method - I applied transparent polish on a plastic bag, let it dry, and then I drew the logo with a permanent pen. At first I tried using black polish and a pin but the result wasn't perfect and really difficult. Then I realized I can use a pen instead, and it worked! The only thing is that a top coat smudges and completely ruins it so I skipped that part.

I had some trouble taking the pictures because the sun won't come out, but eventually I got some nice photos that show the holo effect of the glitters, and I was surprised to see that even in the shade the glitters were pretty and you can see a little glittery rainbow (two last photos).
I think this mani turned out to be pretty nice and it's a decent James Bond Skyfall mani ;)
