I love movies, but I'm old. And when I say that I'm old, I mean I am the stereotypical old person who gets mad at children running in the aisles, I get grumpy when people are using their cell phones in any capacity, and I don't like to share my space with a lot of noisy people.
So, when the new X-men movie opened, and hubby and I went to an early matinee and had very little company, I was *thrilled*. But it also meant that I had to get ready in a hurry!
But I HAD to do X-men nails! Totally quick and dirty. Even the one Wolverine face didn't stamp fully, but it kinda looks like he's cackling evilly, so it's okay. I used Zoya Pippa, OPI Over and Over A-Gwen, and Finger Paints Black Expressionism with Fab Ur Nails Fun 11 plate for the stamping.
Hubby wore a Marvel-themed t-shirt, which earned him knowing nods from the other geeks in the audience. I showed my nails to the girl selling tickets. She acted impressed, but I don't think she really got it, ya know?

I thought I'd also show you the makeup look I did for our date. I've been sporting the Cover FX SPF 30 primer and BB Gel, of course. Still loving the light coverage and satin finish. I think I have on my Jordana Color Tint Blush Stick in Coral Touch, and my Hourglass Ambient Dim Light finishing powder, too.
Boy, howdy, am I having trouble taking good pictures of my makeup. It's harder than it looks! I'm either too yellow or too washed out.
I did my eyes with the Stila 10-pan eyeshadow palette with 14k (bright gold shimmer) on my inner lid, copper (copper shimmer) on the outer lid, and jade (shimmery jade green) in the crease. I've been practicing with my ELF brow kit, and I also tried a little cat eye with my new fave liquid liner - Physicians Formula.
Hubby got me into the X-Men franchise, oh, 20 years ago? and Wolverine has always been my fave, so I was glad to wear him on my nails! Did you ever do a theme mani, makeup, or fashion for a movie?
