31DC2013 Day 22- Inspired by a Song! (Bastille- Pompeii)

1 Comment

Hi everyone!

I’m really excited for this look because the song I’ve chosen to be inspired by is probably one of my favorites of all time! I love the group Bastille, and their new album, Bad Blood, has been my obsession since its release. The best song off the album, in my opinion, is Pompeii, a gorgeous song featuring strong vocals. I love to wake up to this in the morning because it just makes my day better! The music video is amazing, check it out here!

I took my inspiration for my nails today from scenes from the music video. The design was done completely freehand with toothpicks, so I’m not going to explain how I drew each design. However, I will include screen grabs to show which scene from the video each nail was inspired by!
