My True Blood Inspired Mani

So recently I've been re-watching all of HBO's True Blood series getting ready for season 5. If you're a fan of the show you may have noticed that the only character who paints her nails is Jessica (one of my favorite characters). In one episode she had on a gorgeous vampy (how appropriate) dark red many. I just had to copy!

For this I used China Glaze Thunderbird, a dark red shimmer with a hint of purple. Application is sublime and the wear was great. In this busy week I wore Thunderbird for THREE DAYS! (with only minimal tip wear). I love shimmers that look dark around the edges but bright and firey in the center. It's such a pretty color and one of my new favorites!

Lastly, a quick comparison if anyone is curious like I was: A England Percival (right) vs. China Glaze Thunderbird (left).

True Blood Season 5 is slated to premiere June 10th! Rumor is that Russell Edgington will be back, and I'm sure sex, blood, and violence will ensue. But will Sookie go back to Bill or stay with Eric? Will we be introduced to Quinn?

I'm a huge fan of the books, but I still love the show (I consider them like two different entities). After all, who can take a good look at Eric Northman and not fall deeply in love with him *cough* *cough* I mean the show!
