Dexter Week Concludes! Blood Oranges...


Last Day of Dexter Week.

Boo.

Todays mani is a signature icon in the Dexter opening credits sequence - The Blood Orange.

These fruits have always intrigued me, they look so damn creepy! I personally can't eat or drink anything orange flavored because I have serious acid reflux, but I would try one if I could!


This is a montage of the opening credits of Dexter if you are unfamiliar.

And this is a close-up of the blood orange part of the credits.



Yeah, this piece of artwork is awesome.


So yeah...I did a background of Gina Tricot Cream (thank you to Ashley Smashley for this polish, it is now one of my all time favorite white/ish polishes ever!), then I traced out my orange design with black polish and a striper brush.

i filled in the oranges with Color Club Wham! Pow! and then went over it with my blood polish of the week, Essie Skirting the Issue.

I then added some random juice/blood splats around the oranges.
So yeah, I dunno. These look more like flowers than oranges, don't you think?
Oh well...I wanted to (and did!) do all freehands this week and not use any stamps, so regardless of a couple of not so great mani's, I do have THAT to be proud of!
I hope you guys like this week and it didn't put you off the blog too much if this wasn't your thing...I swear next week will be tamer!
But before I go - Dexter Season 8 Trailer!
