Girly Girl Challenge #5 - Chick Flick

Today's post is another short one. Sorry for the lack of posts this week my friends, it's been really cray with company and school. I'm hoping things will get calmed down soon, and I can make time for regular posts. I have some really great nail polish to show you - and I new-to-me indie maker that I'm excited to show you.
This is Challenge #5 of the Girly Girl Nail Art Challenge - Chick Flicks!
My chick flick nail art is off of the movie Practical Magic - two sisters, Sally and Gillian, magically inclined living with their two widowed aunts. The Owen's women are destined to live in heartbreak if true love is found, for the curse of an ancestor has lingered in their family - an unfortunate and premature death to the men who truly love an Owen woman. Seeing the devastating side of loving someone, Sally casts a spell of true love, in an attempt to protect herself from falling in love -
       Sally: He will hear my call a mile away, he will whistle my favourite song, he can ride a pony backwards-
 Gilly: What are you doing?
 Sally: I'm summoning up a true love spell called amas veritas, he can flip pancakes in the air, he will be marvellously kind, and his favourite shape will be a star. And he'll have one green eye, one blue.
 Gilly: I thought you never wanted to fall in love.
 Sally: That's the point. The guy I dreamed up doesn't exist, and if he doesn't exist, I'll never die of a broken heart.

So my nail art for this challenge is Sally's spell - one coat of Cult Nails Fetish, and I used my new Emori Nail Art pen to draw the images, I found them on Amazon at 12 for $7.95, and so far I really like them! The star on my thumb represents the star talisman of Sally's true love, Gary, the candle is one of the factors of the spell casting, one green one blue eye and the animal figure on my pinkie is the pancake shape that Gary made for Sally's kids for breakfast one morning.
A simple art mani, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. Don't forget to check out the other challenge manis! Happy Sunday everyone!
