The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Music/Movies/TV - Sherlock

This is such an exciting month for the NCC!  Not only do we have a fun theme but we have some new ladies! Make sure you check them out! Just click on their links at the end of the post.  I can't wait to see their first manicures!

This month's theme covers three categories: Music, Movies and TV.  I always love doing this theme because I usually have tons of inspiration.  For some reason when I did my first design I thought we were also doing books.  I knew the theme so I don't know why I thought books.  Anyway, the design was too good not to use it.  So here is my theory, I based my manicure off a series I just starting re-reading, the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes mysteries by Laurie King.  I reads these books years ago and decided to revisit them.  The very first book is called The Language of Bees, which is were my design came from.  I can still use it for this month's theme because it is Sherlock Holmes which has many movie and TV versions...especially the most recent which I LOVE!  So see, it all ties together very nicely!

I know you just want the design!

I started with two coats of Misa Tumble Bug, which I am loving!


I added a honeycomb image using OPI Cointrea-Versial Chocolate and W113.


Using Milani Black Swift I added some bees from B88 and a Sherlock image from Jr-31.





I love this design!  There was no way I was going to not use it for the theme.  Totally works!
