True Blood: A Nail Story

Who is as excited as I am forTrue BloodSeason Four tonight? A friend of mine got me reading the Charlaine Harris Sookie Stackhouse novels shortly before the TV series True Blood premiered. I couldn't put them down. It was like Twilight for adults (ok, so I got really into that too, whatever!). So I have undoubtedly been a huge fan of True Blood on HBO, despite them leaving out some of my favorite parts of the novels! 


I am so ready for Season Four tonight, and am currently en route to the Bloody Sunday: A True Blood Panel Discussion at IMATS here in Pasadena. The description from the official schedule:

Join the make-up and special make-up effects teams from HBO’s hit showTrue Blood as they discuss their work from the show’s previous seasons—as well as teasing what’s to come in Season Four!  Witness never-before-seen test shots and get a detailed exposé on their work, followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience.

I am in heaven! So to pay tribute to one of my favorite shows, I have been rocking some True Blood inspired nails all weekend. When I saw that  OPI had a "Red Shatter," my first thought wasTrue Blood (and Dexter, when that comes back on) nails. 


I painted a couple of coats of Sally Hansen "Black Out," followed by a swipe of "Red Shatter." I also painted one nail with Sally Hansen "Red Hot," followed by "Black Shatter." I don't wear dark nails often, I'm more of an obnoxiously-blinding-brights sort of girl. So this is a nice change, but I find it amplifies the fact that I am a makeup artist, not a manicurist, for good reason. Oh well, blood is messy, right?!

HappyTrue Blood Sunday!
