40 Great Nail Art Ideas: Films - Gaslight

Happy Saturday! I am squeezing this mani in by the skin of my teeth! I didn't know if I would have time to do this nail art but I am so glad I managed it because it is one of my favorite manis ever! This week's theme is "films" and I decided to use one of my all-time favorite movies as inspiration: Gaslight. (For more about this movie please continue reading!)

I would imagine many of you may have never heard of Gaslight. That's quite sad because it is a wonderful movie. Made in 1944, it stars Ingrid Bergman, Charles Boyer and Joseph Cotten, as well as the supporting talents of a very young and sultry Angela Landsbury. It is filled with suspense and mystery. Charles Boyer is Ingrid Bergman's sketchy husband with a secret to hide, and is willing to drive his wife insane to do so. "Gaslighting" is the act of trying to drive someone insane. I highly recommend watching it if you haven't seen it already! My nail art is loosely based on the following screenshot from the movie. 


I started off with SinfulSHINE Steel Reserve, which is a very dark grey creme. I then sponged on Girly Bits Elephant Shoe and Salon Perfect Sugar Cube very lightly until I got the "foggy" look that I wanted. I topcoated and let that dry before going in with my acrylic paint to create the rest of the mani. I used Darling Diva's Pryzmatic Top Coat to seal everything and then finished it all off with my favorite matte top coat, Girly Bits Polish Matte'rs.

I hope you enjoyed this nail art as much as I have! Make sure you check out the other manis below!

Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
