Oscar Caliber Nails Did

If its one awards show that I'm always going to watch its the Academy Awards (besides the Tony's but I always miss it :S). I LOVE the Oscars, as much as I HATE the Oscars. Let's face it, in the end its all about politics - Avatar for best film? Cmon!

Anyway I lucked out since there were 10 films nominated in the Best Picture category I could actually accomplish 10 different nail art on each finger about each movie!

So here is my right hand:

And here is my left!

Okay now to break it down...

Have you seen this movie? If not then I HIGHLY suggest that you do. Its so powerful and both leading ladies completely deserve to be nominated in their categories.
So for this I used Opi's Thrill in Brazil with a black nail art pen.


I used nail art pens in black, yello, blue and white. Essie Midnight Cami and China Glaze Sexy in the City

District 9
There has been many mixed feelings about District 9 but I just genuinely love this movie. I think Sci-Fi's do social commentary the very best and D9 was awesome.

I used nail art pens in black, silver and white and China Glaze Liquid Leather

Such a beautiful and touching movie. I really wish I didn't fall asleep in the theatre the first time seeing it LOL. Seriously though its a must see.

I used nail pens in blue, red, purple, green, orange, pink and black with Rimmel Torrid and China Glaze Lemon Fizz

Inglorious Basterds
Ugh, I have a love/hate relationship with Tarantino. I didn't love this movie but I didn't hate it. Waltz absolutely deserves his nomination (now win!) for this though.

I used art pens in black white and red

Up In The Air
I didn't want to watch this movie, but I was doing work orders at work and put it on in the background (I love dual screens). Its actually REALLY good and Clooney is just so sexy in that aging gracefully type of way.

I used Nubar LLC with a black art pen

The Hurt Locker
Man did I try to watch this movie..I'm just not a war movie girl. But I did hear that the movie was excellent and I totally hope that Cameron loses to Bigelow for best director. SNAP

I used OPI Curry Up Don't Be Late, Nubar Forest, nail art pen in khaki and Nubar NV2

An Education
I fell asleep 5 minutes into this movie. Ben ended up fast forwarding through the whole thing. Here is the jist: girl wants education, meets man, has sex with man, fails at education, The end.

I used art pens in black, white, red and silver and China Glaze Lemon Fizz

The Blind Side
As good as this movie was, Sandra Bullock just doesn't deserve a best actress win. No. But is she gonna win anyway? Yes.

I used Nubar Forest with a white art pen.

A Serious Man
This is the only movie nominated in this category I haven't seen or attempted to see.

It just seems so...serious...someone let me know how it is. naturally I went with the lead characters glasses...because glasses make a serious man.

I used China Glaze White on White with black nail art pen.

What a cute idea! I think Precious should win but I have a feeling evil Avatar will. That movie makes my blood boil in anger!

Too freaking awesome! I, too, hate the Oscars....(and Avatar WENT DOWN!!!!) Love it.

I don't like when politics and personal agendas get in the way of entertainment....getting worse all the time! (Cameron got beat by a girl!)

this, is truly impressive - I love the way your District 9 nail turned out. Precious & avatar are very cool as well.

Rebecca said...

That is amazing! I agree that Avatar shouldn't have been nominated and you got your wish about Bigelow! Go first female Best Director!!
Up is my favourite out of these movies.

Liz said...

Wow! You are so talented. Sadly, I've only seen Up! :)

not exactly sure waht district 9 nail image it the land area they live in..district 9 was way better than I expected it to be.

apparently they are making a district 10.

l0verlada – I know, Precious was so deserving but I knew it wasn’t going to win. SO surprised by Hurt Lockers best pic win! WHOO

sarahloo, gildedangel, L, Krystle, Tuli, Deez – Thank you so much ladies! What I’m happy of is that I’m getting faster! It only took me 1hr 20 min this time! LOL

Yardsticks – SO AMAZING that Cameron lost in both cats!!!! Not only did he get beat by a girl, but by his ex whom he had a bitter divorce with. Notice how they sat him behind her? LOVE IT.

Rebecca, Liz – Up was a fantastic movie – but make sure to see some of the others…maybe not Avatar…they have enough money LOL

Shortnails – The District 9 one is the alien in the sight of a gun. Check out the banner below. It would have been more clear if the rings were not as thick but that’s the thinnest brush I got! They are making a District 10. Leave it to Hollywood to never leave awesome things be. They always have to capitalize to the maximum on popularity.

NIKI!!!! I had no idea you were so incredibly talented. This is amazing!!!! WOW!!! I need to go share this with everyone I know. VERY COOL, and awesome job!

Niki* said...

AWW! Thanks Brooke! <3 <3

I think its one of the better ones I've done too :D

ANSTAH said...

Hi there! I just started following your blog, and all I can say is WOW. This post truly is by far, the best nail polish blog article I've seen in a while. It's amazing. I can't believe you are so talented to showcase all the nominees like that. Where have I been this whole time?! I've been missing out on your blog! I can't wait to see what other nail designs you have up your sleeve. BTW, the Up design was my favorite. But then again, I'm so incredibly biased. I've seen that movie no less than twenty times, and it still makes me cry every single time. <3

Niki* said...

Anstah - Thanks for the kinds words! *blush* I'm glad you're enjoying my blog! Up was an AWESOME movie. But then I've never been steered wrong my Pixar...My personal favorite is Wall-E.

I also love Up because of this picture:
