We're Gonna Rouge Our Knees


and roll our stockings down...

I have yet to come across a musical that I DIDN'T like, and CHICAGO is no exception. I LOVE this musical. I love the movie version, and though I've only experienced the soundtrack of the stage version, I adore that too! I love the glamour of it all, the sex, the crime, the Richard Gere?! :-P Anyway, today's nails were inspired by all that jazz...

The 'glow' is far more subtle in person, but the camera really seemed to pick it up.


I used American Apparel Hassid as a base, with the orangey red from the Color Club Yacht Club collection for the glow of the neon letters, mixed with a little American Apparel Hassid to try to fade out the glow a bit, and with Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud to create the glowing neon of the middle C. For the black of the other letters, I used American Apparel Hassid.

So who's your favorite Velma? Bebe Neuwirth? Catherine Zeta Jones? Someone else? Are you more of a Roxie Hart fan? Maybe Mama? Billy? *rawr*

  11. Um, you are kind of amazing. :) This design is killer, and did you get a hand cramp holding your nails that way to figure out the pattern? I love it!

  14. My birthday is next Monday and I was going to do my nails musical themed, because I love musicals, and Chicago is on my list! Nice coincidence ;D
    And I like Amos better just because of 'Mister Cellophane' :D

  15. OMG!!! CHICAGO<3

    I was lucky enough to see Chicago, in Chicago for my birthday last year. I love the movie, but the live show was awe inspiring! It had so much fun, sex and laughter throughout it even made the movie look lack luster.

    but ANYWAY these nails are great, and they really did bring those wonderful memories back, thank you!!!
