Yesterday (March 5th) was the premiere for “300: Rise of an Empire” in Belgium. The release date for the UK I believe is tomorrow (7th March) so I can’t comment on whether it’s any good or not yet. Any film with Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green and Lena Headey is surely good though right? If not, at least they are good to look at 😉 !
I decided to create some nail art based on the films name – specifically the number “300” because I love the way it has been designed. Here is a picture of what it looks like if you don’t know already:
The number only took up 3 nails, so for the other two I decided I would do them in whatever colour dress Lena Headey wore for the premiere. I was hoping she would wear red to fit the theme, but instead she kept it quite simple and went with black (which did look gorgeous!) and fortunately still matched my nail art theme! 🙂
To create the nail design I used a very small brush to draw with. I initially wrote the “300” in white nail polish (because red doesn’t show up properly on black) and then went over it in red once dry.
To make the blood, I placed blobs of red nail polish on the black nails and blew on it before it dried – this made it spread out and give it the ‘splattered blood’ look. Putting the red nail polish directly on black made the colour appear blood-like.
Hope you like 🙂 ! Will anybody be going to see this film when it comes out?
