[SoMoNight] the man from U.N.C.L.E.

Hey lovelies,

today I would like to give you a small inside on the past SocialMovieNight by Robert Hofmann for the movie The man from U.N.C.L.E. (Codname: U.N.C.L.E. in Germany)

The man from U.N.C.L.E. is an action comedy spy film directed by Guy Ritchie and co-written by Lionel Wigram and Ritchie, based on the 1964 MGM television series of the same name created by Sam Rolfe. The film stars Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki and Hugh Grant. The film will be released on August 13, 2015.

In the early 1960s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons.

For that night I created a nail design as well as a pedicure, that would match the subject of the movie.

With a little help from California Nails I did a USA flag design on my toes and partially on my nails as well as the missions name U.N.C.L.E.

 

How do you like the combination ?

Thank you to Felix for taking this lovely picture (check him out on Instagram)

For my toes I used the USA flag toe nail tips from California Nails. A quick and easy way to impress with a clean design.

The SocialMovieNight was as fun as always.

Robert Hofmann and his co-host Mr. Trashpack, as well as moderator Patrice Bouédibéla led through the evening.

My nails were also a big hit.

Before the movie started we took the typical SocialMovieNight selfie.

[SoMoNight] NORTHMEN a viking saga

Good evening everyone,

I know it’s late but until now (midnight) I was doing my nails for tomorrows SocialMovieNight – this time for the movie NORTHMEN a viking saga.

892120_409231749172732_1205415969_o

 

I am very curious about this movie, especially because this is not the type of movie I usually watch at the cinema.
I saw the trailer and got excited about the fighting sequences, the story and I am ready to be entertained. This time will be very dear to me, because for the first time I will bring my younger brother. I am happy to see his reaction to the whole social movie night and to introduce him to all those awesome people who make this possible over and over again. I hope he will enjoy it as much as I do.

For the nail design I was actually very nervous. What fits a viking movie besides a typical viking helmet, bears and maybe some weapons? I had no idea and was confronted with thing that are pretty difficult to paint on nails haha

So I decided to the basics. Mostly a grey metallic base, some brown to make it look dirty and stoney and the typical symbols.

Here is what this rather simple nail design looks like.

I finished everything off with my matte top coat from O.P.I., because I felt a shiny top coat wouldn’t go very well with this theme.

Even though it is pretty simple, I do love the matte dark nails. They pictures don’t show well, but they really do look like dirty stones and in general make the design appear harsh and strong…..viking-like I think :)

What do you think? What would you suggest for a viking inspired nail design?

Have a great night

[SoMoNight] Dracula untold

Good evening everyone!

After two pretty packed weeks I am back to tell you about all the awesome things that happened.
Tomorrow I will publish my post to the DM Marken Camp / DM Camp Beauty which I attended in Dusseldorf past Saturday.
If you can’t wait, I posted a few pictures on my Facebook or Instagram. You are welcome to take a look and follow me there if you want.
Even when I don’t blog I try to keep you up to date on there.

BUT before tomorrow’s post I wanted to tell about the awesome SocialMovieNight to Dracula untold which I joined yesterday in Berlin.

background

Robert and all the awesome people from PURE Online did a great job, as usual! They whole cinema was decorated for the movie and even Luke Evans and Sarah Gadon joined to present the movie to us and answer some questions. I loved it!

The movie was great, I loved the 2nd trailer they released and REALLY wanted to be a part of this particular SocialMovieNight. Luckily I was :)
I loved how dark it was and Luke Evans was the perfect match to play Dracula. I got already got goosebumps and shivers all over my body during the first 5 minutes of the movie. I don’t want to spoiler you, so all I say is – if you like this trailer, you will love the movie!

 

As you might already know, when I attend the SocialMovieNight I do my nails matching the movie.
This time I worked with Acrylic nails to create nice long red / black gradient stiletto nails.

What I used?

  • Fing’rs Fashion Normal Acrylic nails

IMG_1565

  • Manhattan Lotus Effect – 45Q
  • Essence LE Dark Romance (the matte) – 02 red romance
  • Astor Nail Artist Check Matte – 3309
  • black shiny hexagon nail glitter

I will show you a mix of instagram and “normal” pictures which I took during the process of making these nails.

At first I used a nail wheel and applied different red nail polishes to see which one is best for the nails I wanted. Since I decided to do stiletto nails, I also wanted to do the Louboutin effect which means to paint the underside of the nail red.
I thought felt that the nails I tried were not the perfect match, they were either too dark or shimmery.

Keeping in mind that I also had to apply polish on top, which probably would make the whole nail appear darker I choose to use Manhattan Lotus Effect – 45Q, which was the brightest and lightest simple red polish I own.

I wanted to create a gradient effect on the topside of the nails so I picked 45Q as a base as well as part for the gradient, also using Essence’s  02 red romance and Astor’s Nail Artist Check Matte – 3309. At first I wanted to try everything out on the nail wheel, making sure not to mess up on the actual Acrylic nails.

I applied two coats of 45Q on the underside of the nail, let it dry and applied two coats on the topside of the nail as well.
After everything was dry I used a make up sponge, ripping little bits off and applying the three colors in order lightest to darkest.
I wanted the nails to have a dry blood effect combined with dirt which is why I choose to matte polishes for the tip of the nails. And it worked :)

After the success of that I started filing the Acrylic nails. A looong process to be honest. I think it took me 2 hours.
I held them onto my natural nail to see how to file them and to make sure I don’t mess up I applied little dots to mark where to file.

After all the nails where done I cut toothpicks in half and glued them on to the fake nails, to make the polish application more easy.
Step by step I started working on the nails. Applying the polish under the nails, letting it dry. Later applying two coats on top, letting it dry. Doing the gradient and carefully applying the hexagon glitter while the polish was still wet. Last step wasn’t so easy, since matte polishes dry hella fast.

Here is the result.

Since I had to work yesterday, I couldn’t apply the nails at home, which meant taking them to work and gluing them on afterwards before I went to the SocialMovieNight.

Here are the two pictures I uploaded on Instagram

This nail design was so much fun and a challenge. It took a lot of time and I really hope you enjoy it!

Have a great night
