ER31DC Week 23 - Inspired by a Movie

Apologies for the massive lateness of this post, but I'm off on my holidays on sunday and last minute panic is in full swing in the Painted Claws household. And by that I mean my other half keeps telling me not to worry and I keep writing insane lists and losing things.

This mani was inspired entirely by Rachael over at Racho's Nail Love and one of the mani's she did for a recent challenge - Comic-Con Geek Week Day 3.

I love Stargate. I remember watching the film so many years ago and absolutely adoring it. I even had the video game for the Mega drive back in the mid-90s. I was terrible at it. But the thing that captivated me most and the one thing that ties all of the various versions together is the gate itself.

The symbols are the first five symbols of the Stargate address for Earth, the familiar symbol (that Rachael sports on her middle finger) is missing because there's not much point in dialing Earth from Earth, is there? You'd just get a busy tone.

The address symbols are painted in BarryM Foil Effects in Gold on a background of Models Own Pro Jack's Black. The gate itself is Essie Beach Bum Blu, with the ring done in Nails Inc Parliament Hill and the chevron markers in OPI A Roll in the Hague.

  1. Awesome! I love the idea of doing Stargate addresses as a mani.
