Cheers to Breaking Bad: A Nail Art Tribute for the Series Finale

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that the series Breaking Bad ends tonight. Even if you don't follow the show, you have definitely heard about it. For me, I only started watching it this past summer, and sped through the series just in time for the final season. I sort of wish I had watched it from the start--there's something about watching a series and moving through the years and the commitment. I love this show so much, and I found myself keeping it on any time I could this past week while AMC played the entire series.

So as in true nature for television shows I love, I had to do some nail art. Truly, the show is all about the chemistry, so I focused on what Walter White would be proud of.

The base is L'Oreal Raven's Strength. I then used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Wall to write the formulas seen in the opening sequence along with the two periodic table elements. I finished it off using the watercolor technique to create the hazardous-looking smoke we see so frequently in the show. The smoke was created using neons Essie Funky Limelight, Model's Own Toxic Apple, Spoiled Jaded, and Essie Shake Your $$ Maker.

Do you think I did this show justice? I really couldn't choose a theme--I wanted to do yellow jumpsuits, or barrels, or twenty other ideas; in the end, it was the classic opening sequence that I chose to do. Here's the image that inspired me. You'll note in faint font in the background, you can see where I got the chemical formulas and numbers.

I cannot wait for the finale, yet it is so bittersweet since this is the only "live" season I've ever watched. I really hope I just don't feel empty inside like I have the past few episodes. Cheers to tonight.
