I have a well documented love for young adult fiction. I read a lot, and they tend to be engaging and quick reads. I have a special soft spot for dystopia and science fiction. Something I don't have a soft spot for...Twilight. Stephanie Meyer is a terrible. She has created something on par with a bad Mary Sue Mormon fan fiction and for whatever reason silly girls seem to latch on to it. Get over it girls, and go read Harry Potter.
Despite my feelings for the phenomenon, I do enjoy bad movies. And Twilight always provides me wonderful fodder in that department. So my friends and I decided to make mocking tshirts, and head out to an opening weekend screening of Breaking Dawn: Vampire Babies! I laughed a lot, and enjoyed the crappy CG wolves that ended up looking like a rifftrax version of itself with it's weird voiceover work. God, it would have been beautifully terrible if I didn't legitimately like several of the actors involved (Michael Sheen, Lee Pace, Jamie Campbell Bower).
To poke as much fun at the series as possible, we all did our nails as sparkly as possible. Because honestly, sparkling vampires? That is patently ridiculous, and I will take up the weakest excuse to use glitter on my finger tips.
These things were outrageously shiny. I think I may redo this for New Years in fact...though I already know what I'm wearing for New Years, and gold might be a better option.
That crappy cell phone photo is all of our nails in the full glory. I wish I had a photo of our tshirts, but let's just say they involved Edward R. Murrow, Teen Wolf, Eddard Stark, and sparkling unicorns.
To get the full sparkle vampire effect I used a base coat of Sally Hansen Celeb City and finished it off with two coats of La Girls Glitter Addict Explosion.
