Twinsie Tuesday - Inspired by Your Favorite Movie

I am very excited to share with you this week's Twinsie Tuesday mani.  This week's theme is inspired by your favorite movie, and my all-time favorite movie is O Brother Where Art Thou?  If you haven't seen it, it is a reinterpretation of Homer's The Odyssey, taking place in Depression-Era Mississippi.  This movie also features one of my favorite soundtracks, as the music plays an important role by helping to tell the story.

My inspiration for this mani was the jumpsuits the main characters (Everett, Pete and Delmar) wear in the beginning of the movie when they initially break out of the chain gang.  This can also be seen on the cover of the movie.  The whole movie was actually filmed with a sepia filter, and it was not added later.  This was my reasoning for not doing a perfect black and white striped prison uniform.  I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff.  I then sponged on Ulta Taupe on a Rope randomly on each nail.  Once dry, I added straight vinyls from Nails Redesigned to create the stripes using Sinful Colors Black on Black.

I really love how this turned out, and it turned out exactly how I envisioned.  I could seriously never get tired of this movie and could watch it over and over.  And being the fan girl that I am, I have to include some of my favorite quotes from the movie.  Be sure to check out the other movie-inspired looks from the other Twinsies!

"Well ain't this place a geographical oddity - two weeks from everywhere!"
"You two are just dumber than a bag of hammers!"
"Damn! We're in a tight spot"
"We ain't gonna paddle his little behind.  We're gonna kick it - kick it real hard."
"Cow killer!"
"She R-U-N-N-O-F-T"
"We stumbled upon a whole gopher village."
