Time Warp Challenge Day 4 ~ Lights, Camera, Action!

Hey y'all!  We're on Day 4 of the Let's Do the time warp Challenge, today's theme is "Lights, Camera, Action!".  We were supposed to do a mani inspired by a nostalgic movie, song or piece of literature.

I chose one of my favorite movies of all time.  It's a chick flick classic and has a special place in my heart.  I chose to do "Steel Magnolias".  It gets quoted around my house quite a bit...probably daily lol.  There's just so many good quotes that pertain to everyday life.  I'll get back to that though.



If you have seen Steel Magnolias, I hope all of these things are iconic for you as much as they are for me.  My index finger is for the "Bleedin' armadillo grooms cake".  Middle of for Shelby's "Signature Color", The Magnolia is for the title of the movie as well as one of the opening scenes with Drum and Ouiser and the stolen Magnolias. And the pinky is for Shelby, it's a diabetes awareness ribbon. 




As I've said above and several times on my blog, Steel Magnolias is my all time favorite movie.  I can watch it over and over again and it will never get old.

Here are some of my favorite and nostalgic quotes:

"I'd rather have 30 minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothin' special"
"Nothin' like a good piece of ass"
"Looks good...looks real real good"....this one gets quoted A LOT around here haha.
"Drink your juice Shelby"
"I'm just screamin' at my husband; I can do that any time"
" I have a strict policy that nobody cries alone in my presence"
" The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize"
" Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion."
" Smile! It increases your face value."
" Ouiser could never stay mad at me; she worships the quicksand I walk on"
" A dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste."
" Ouiser, you sound almost chipper. What happened today, you run over a small child or something?"
"My colors are blush and bashful"
"Her colors are pink and pink"
"the Sanctuary looks like it's been hosed down with Pepto Bismol"

Okay, I'll stop haha. I could really go on until I quoted the whole movie but I'll spare you, just go watch it, they're much funnier than I am, I promise.  :)


I used so many polishes on this, Wet and Wild Flirty Rose Creme, Sinful Colors Pink Forever, China Glaze Wicked Style, OPI Do you think I'm Tex-y?, Finger Paints Curator's Crimson, China Glaze Recycle, a light grey franken I made, OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! Okay Fine!, China Glaze Gaga for green and last but not least Sinful Colors Exotic Green. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my post today, I hope you enjoyed it.  XOXO
