Psycho Nails


I think I've mentioned before that I went to film school, and if not, now you know.  This naturally means I've seen a ton of Hitchcock.  He is used in film classes a lot because he is so prolific and leaves a very distinct artistic mark and style on his films, so he is very interesting to study.  I watched Psycho in a class about film score and it rocketed Bernard Herrmann to my second favorite film composer of all time (the first being Ennio Morricone, obviously).  I studied to a lot of Herrmann soundtracks after that, and Psycho remains one of my favorites.


Technically, the crew used chocolate sauce as the blood in the infamous shower scene, but I thought brown blood drips would look terrible, so I went with the traditional red.  The white is China Glaze White on White with Maybelline Snow Bunny over top for some shimmer, and the red is OPI Double Decker Red.
