So funny thing, I couldn’t decide what to do. The movie I had planned got shelved as too time-consuming for right now. And I had some leftover hardware that I was determined to utilise to save me putting it back. I once again found a movie to fit the theme.

Being a lover of B-Grade flicks, I had wondered if there was a film about nails. Fingernails mainly. It took about two seconds of Googling to find a recent movie, indeed called Nails. I haven’t seen it, and probably never will cos the plot sounds even too Z-Grade for any of my B-Grade sensibilities. There is a very fine line between awesomely terrible and completely tragic.

I assumed it was a piss-take comedy cos it has a comedian cast, but nope. I think it was an Irish/UK collab. I’ve put the trailer below the pix. If you really want to lose a minute of your life that you’ll never get back, be my guest…

I did layered painting and stamping with lots of various grungy themed imagery – blood splatters, dirty walls, spooky letters… All  typical horror film tropes. Just to get the point across.

So I managed to avoid putting away my remnant nails by incorporating them into my nail art, as nails, about a movie called Nails. Which according to the plot, is also the name of a character in said movie. Yup. A ghost called Nails. A dead subordinate who haunts people or some random stuff. Like this paralysed woman in the hospital that no-one believes. And yes it looks as bad as it sounds. See for yourself…

And here’s my grunge look close-up!
