It's DEXTER Week!!!!


Every first week of the month, myself and few close nail friends get together and bust out a theme week. We have all been REALLY excited to get this one rolling and it's finally here!

DEXTER WEEK!

If you don't know about Dexter, you clearly live under some big boulders. This is a show going into its 8th and final season this month. I'm sad. I've been with this show since it's very first episode aired and, while I have wavered around the 2nd and 3rd Seasons, I have always loved and stayed true to it.





So...there is a theme here today, and it's plastic. Dexter, when given the proper time and locale, likes to wrap his victims up in plastic wrap and tell them what they've done wrong and whats about to be coming to them. He's never veered from this MO and it's one of the best parts of the show to me.  So in trying to pay homage to the plastic, I have let my nails be the victims here today.

The manicure itself is quite basic. I did a basecoat of Seche Vite, which has a pearly white finish. On my ring finger I did a blob of Essie Skirting the Issue.

One nail at a time I simply added a quick dry top coat and then a sliver of plastic wrap that I had cut the same width as the nail but about twice as long, wrinkled it up, held it together with tweezers and then placed it on my nail and pressed it down.

For any pieces that stuck up, I just top coated those areas a bit and pushed the plastic back on to itself. It's messy but its fun sometimes to rock a messy nail design if it gets the point across! Suffer for your nail art!



You can bet there is going to be some serious awesome brought this week - make sure and check out these ladies to see what they did:

    I love it. I quit watching Dexter after season 4 (How great was John Lithgow?), but I still have some fond memories of the series. Doing splatter mani to me means doing Dexter splatter mani :D
    The idea to use plastic wrap and just a bit of red polish is amazing.

  15. It's one of those shows that some people just can't watch. I know there was a time in my life where anything remotely scary was unwatchable to me. Then one day it all just turned around!

  19. Yes you need to watch it then! Hannibal is more gruesome in a lot of ways (especially for a network show!)

  23. UHM, DUH! This is amazing!!! I can't believe both you and Ashley thought of doing this and it never even crossed my mind! So cool!

  24. We just are too rad to be fully encapsulated in one human body.

  25. We have a habit of someone always doing something super similar to someone else without fail! I like it, I like seeing someone elses take on the same idea! Like the kill outfit!
