Sherlock Nail Art

New Sherlock! New Sherlock is coming! The long, insane wait is almost over...at least for the next few weeks...because today is NEW SHERLOCK DAY!! This excites me beyond the capacity for rational thought, but I did manage to string together a semi-logical proposal that went, "Hey, nail art for new Sherlock!"

Over a base of Sally Hansen CSM Ion (thank you again, Amanda!), I used acrylic paints and my smallest brush to do a rendition of that fantastic living room wallpaper in 221B, complete with yellow smiley face. Didn't get the pattern exactly right, but I didn't really expect to anyway, given how crazy-intricate it is. I just had to give this idea a try because OMG NEW SHERLOCK I CAN NOT EVEN.

Yeah, sorry about that. I have fangirled, and I can't get up.

Ooh, in case you aren't familiar with the show? (And oh my gosh, if you like television and/or things that are in any way good, I highly recommend it...) Here's one of the BBC's S2 promo pics in front of the smiley wall.


It's been two years since The Fall, and I am too excited for words.

  1. Well, you sure do know how to brighten a gal's New Year, woman! A grin just split my face when I saw this on my Feedly. Fantastic job! Just a side note... a couple of friends and I get together just about weekly, have dinner and do our nails whilst indulging our fandoms. I can't believe we didn't make plans for tonight. I must go remedy that now...
