Django Nails

Django Unchained is one of my favourite films by the coolest director, I just had to give the nails a go! 

I based them on the main poster:

I'll admit I did cheat, I used the black Barry M pen rather than painting them on, but using the pen took me long enough so there's no way I would've been able to paint it! Here are some close-ups, I prefer them matted:

Apologies for the crap cuticles, not sure why I left them like that! 

So for this I used Essie's Snap Happy as a base, I've never found a proper one coater until Snap Happy! Then I sponged on some black because the poster is kind of grainy, but I think it's just made them look a bit dirty, well the thought was there. Then I drew on the chains with the black Barry M pen. I used Seche Vite for the shiny one and the matte top coat from the Born Pretty Store. I recommend the film by the way, it's brilliant! This has got to be my favourite still of any film ever:

Such a cool dude! And don't get me started on Schultz, I could make a whole other blog on that guy :p 

Ciao for now!


  1. I like them matte too. The look more rugged that way. Kinda like the movie. :)

    1. Yeah I agree, they just don't look right when shiny. 'Kinda like', psh :p
