31 Day Nail Challenge: Week 23 - Inspired by a Movie

Sorry this post is a bit late, I was away from home until late last night so I didn't get to do my nails or post.. that was today's job!

I've known what I wanted to do for this post for a while now so it was nice not to have to make too many decisions! Just the colour, the design, the shapes, the positions -.-

So anyway I chose to do my nails based on My Neighbour Totoro by Studio Ghibli. I love this film, it's so cute and quirky and the characters are actually amazing! Here are my nails:

I'm so pleased with these! I added the heart because it's Valentine's this week and coloured it like his fuzzy belly <3

I used Nails Inc Oxford as the base (a more watery version of Models Own Beth's Blue), No7 Grey Skies for Totoro and my Rio nail art pens for the rest.

For those of you who have no idea what I'm going on about, here is Totoro:

So yay! Totoro nails!

Gemx's nails are awesome this week! They're right up my street and I know Alli will appreciate them too!

Here's what she had to say:
"This week I had to pick a movie and I had a hard time choosing! It was also my boyfriends birthday so I let him pick. He really like the galaxy nails from a few weeks ago and his sister and I had planned to have a Star Trek themed cake, so I went for Star Trek nails too! I nailed them in a similar way to the galaxy nails and added the Starfleet insignia. They are really blue and sparkly in person, but it's snowing here today so the light is a little rubbish.
I used Filthy Gorgeous Twilight as a base and then sponged on some Kiko 255 and some Models Own Snow White and then some Orly Space Cadet and Orly Halleys Comet, which always look good over black. Finally I sponged on a crazy amount of Technic Mermaid, which will be fun to remove, but it is such a nice glitter! The insignia I drew on using Andrea Fulerton nail art brushes in silver and black.
I've always been a Star Trek fan and I am really looking forward to Into Darkness and a bit of Benedict Cumberbatch being the baddie!"

I love the insignia! How cool is that! I feel a bit left out now that everyone has done super geek sci fi nails.. but I love my Totoro nails too much to be sad about it haha!

Have a lookie at Alli's nails this week, they're so pretty!

That's it for now, I have a few different sorts of posts in the pipeline because I'm aware that I only post once a week now and I'd like to post more =)

Thanks for reading!
