Digit-al Dozen: Story Genres - True Grit

Greetings and Nailutations,

Today is the last day of the Digit-al Dozen Week Story Genres.  The entire week I have use actual books for my inspiration which coincidentally were also movies!  Today is no different and I am using True Grit, a western for my inspiration.  There are actually 2 movies, one from 1969 and one from 2010.  I read the book first and then watched the 2010 movie and then the 1969.  I am a Jeff Bridges fan, so I really enjoyed the 2010 version and the book is great too!

Let's get to the details.

Products used:
O.P.I. - Tiramisu For Two
Sally Hansen - Terra-Coppa
Ever After Polish - Black Magic
Heather's Hues - Heart of the Matter
Winstonia - W214 Plate
Vivid Lacquer - VL038 Plate
Ellagee Polish - Lickity Split Latex Mani Mask (press sample)

I used Tiramisu For Two for my base on all fingers.  On my pointer and middle finger I dry brushed Terra-Coppa on to get a little sparkle on the snake skin.  I stamped with Black Magic and topped it all with Heart Of the Matter.

True Grit is a wester with a little comedy.  It includes a hunt for a criminal with a nice reward and a snake bite!  I won't give anything away because the book and movies are really good!

Be sure to check out the manis below!

Happy Polishing,
