So, what to do, what to do...I decided to not do the literal, and chose to treat "Hot" as "Sexy". Once I made that choice, a song popped into my head - "Computer Blue". And then "Darling Nikki", "When Doves Cry"... Hopefully you figured out who inspired my Hot-Sexy mani this week, but if not, I won't hold it against you. FYI - purple is NOT color correct. I took too many photos, and it just would not photograph; it is a red-purple in real life.
This is giving you a rough idea of my age, but what are you going to do? I can't think of too many people that inspired the same frenzy that Prince did when Purple Rain came out. Sure there are boy bands that have rabid fans, but with Prince it was different. He was just dripping S-E-X, and he was pretty hot. I saw the movie back when it came out - I was underage, but snuck in with a few friends. I had watched it a few more times that year, but I don't plan on watching it ever again. I am pretty sure it won't have nearly the same impact, and I don't want to have that disappointed feeling when you realize something that you loved at one point is really kind of lame...
I used the outfit that was famous from that movie as inspiration...here is a photo of it, taken from the website of the Minnesota Historical Society.
Sally Hansen HD - Cyber (red-purple. Color is really close to photo above in real life)
Wet n Wild - Black Crème
Wet n Wild - A Blank Canvas (white)
Orly - Gogo (shimmery white)
Emori Nail Art - Silver Lining
It's kind of an abstract interpretation, but it was a quick last minute re-do and I kinda like it. Now I'm off to look at the other submissions, while I listen to some Purple Rain.
