Anyway, here's my Firefly manicure, you get to see six fingers, which is a pretty good average.
I used more than this, but didn't want to list all the polishes I used for filling in.
- Sally Hansen miracle cure
- LOOK by BIPA Ridge Filler
- ArtDeco High Gloss 59
- MaxFactor nailfinity 730 tropical spirit
- Icing Cocoa
- Spooky Nails 2 in 1 nail tattoo liner black
- Seche Vite
After applying the base coats I painted nine nails with two coats of Icing Cocoa. The left middle finger was fully covered with one coat of ArtDeco 59 and then partially covered - leaving a couple of millimetres on the sides free - with nailfinity 730. I sealed all nails with Seche Vite as I prefer to have a smooth and stabile surface for freehand nail art.
Then I grabbed my nail art pen and added the 'Serenity' lettering to my middle finger.
I considered leaving the rest of my nails bare, for a puristic Browncoat effect, but then got the urge to draw one of Wash's dinos. Thus each remaining nail got a simple little design for each member of Serenity's crew.
On my left hand I have a wonky ballet slipper, a T. Rex (or it might be Godzilla), the button-y bit of Mal's suspenders (that man made suspenders hot) and hidden on my thumb there's a little tea cup ('cause I find Inara incredibly bland).
On the right hand only two came out decently, a butterfly (shiny!) and Jayne's hat (hands up, everyone who has one *jerks hand up*). I have Zoe's necklace on my pinkie, I couldn't think of anything good for Book and Simon, so they got a squiggly scalpel and the corner of a bible (no way there's gonna be a whole bible on my nail). Then all nails were sealed with Seche Vite.
So, Firefly: yea or nay? My best friend introduced me to that wonder of awesomeness and I developed a serious crush on Jayne and River... :-P
