Is this your first plane crash? You can always spot the n00b's. ;)
Today is an exciting day for me. It's the day I start my second series of nail art!! This one I get to have some helpers for. I've been teasing here and on my Facebook page about the upcoming challenge. Six girls. Six seasons. Six mani's. And now we're here!! So I'm sure you've guessed the premise by now. If not, you need to get yourself to a DVD player and start watching RIGHT. NOW. Seriously. Don't even continue reading. And be prepared to be completely absent from your life for the next 96 hours or so. So I'll start by introducing my partners in crime here. The "others" (hehe) are: Kirsten, Sarah, Emma, Debbie, and Kerrie. So don't forget to check out the awesome art work they come up with. So each day, starting with today, there will be a new manicure featuring art inspired by each season of LOST. My blogs will be going up at various times of day to coincide with the series as well. Look for tomorrows at 8AM EST.
And now...without further delay...Season One...
I'm going to be completely honest here and admit that the reason I started watching this show is that I think Dominic Monaghan is a seriously hot dude. I had a general idea about what the show was about. But truly: Dominic. *Sigh* Oh wait...where was I? Yeah...LOST. So if you've seen the show you know how magical that pilot episode was. I don't think I breathed a single time while I was watching it. Years later, I watch in in 3D (yeah my TV rocks) and surround sound...and honestly, it's the best darn two hours of TV money can buy. I'd rather watch it than even a film. It's THAT. GOOD. The crash. The jungle. The suspense. The mystery. It's breathtaking. I hated Jack. Pretty much from the moment he stumbled his drunk self out of that jungle. I loved Hurley. Charlie. Oh Charlie. I loved him instantly too. His funny little remarks. Everyone else had to kind of grow on me. And Shannon and Boone. Oh those two. They drove me crazy but in an OK way. :P I think my favorite part of the season was the growth. The first season of the show really filled out the characters for us but without being obvious or obnoxious. The characters were building trust with one another. There was that little incident with the caves vs. the beach. And that little Ethan Rom incident. But for the most part everyone, even Sawyer, worked together to try to survive, and of course, escape. The other thing that excited me about season one...that hatch. What was in that hatch!? Oh I agonized about it. And the loss of Boone. I have to admit Boone was NOT my favorite character but oh how I cried when he died. And those transfusions?! With sea urchin needles. Crazy talk. We were also introduced to the smoke monster, Rousseau (in a round about sense) and the others though at the time they were survivor stealing primitives. Oh how I missed the innocence of season one. But it got better in season two...when that hatch busted open...but that's for tomorrow!! The nails I did for this season were to represent some of the more prominent characters. My thumb is Jack in his initial stance on the beach (which is incidentally the image on the side of my Season One Blu Ray box), the index is Hurley's headphones. I missed Hurley's music when that thing inevitably died early on in the season. The middle is Charlie. Remember his Sharpie? At one point in the season his hands read both LATE and FATE. The ring is Kate. It's her hand peeking out of the bamboo thresh after the pilot was "eaten" by Smokey. "One...two...three...four...five". The pinkie is Locke. It's the light from the hatch after Locke and Boone launched something from their trebuchet into the top! Polished used are listed below. :) What were your favorite moments from season one?
