Dexter Week - Ice Truck Killer mani and some Dexter-themed Black Cat Lacquers

Hi Goddesses

Welcome to Day 2 of Dexter Week, which has a couple of nods back to where it started – firstly to Series 1, and secondly, to the wonderful Black Cat Lacquer, whose Dexter themed polishes actually made me watch the show – thank you forever Sabrina!!!

Let’s start with the mani.  It’s hard to believe that a show like Dexter should come with its own nail art lol, but it does.  The true significance of it isn’t revealed until the final episode of series 1, and it really pulled my heartstrings when it was.

I loved Series 1.  I think it’s the best in so many ways – the rich characterisation, the snark (which I think has been lost), the plotting and the reveals – wow, just all so brilliant.

For my nails I used really cheap polishes, as befits Mom, and I toyed with doing nasty streaky one-coaters, but I couldn’t quite commit to it lol.  I did however play around with some dead hand poses :)

I then added Black Cat Lacquer Ice Truck Killer over the top, for a double dose of madness!.  Each of the glitters in this polish takes its colour from the ITK mani.

For me, the glitter was an amusing reflection of how much glitter has changed in the last 6 to 12 months – it’s mainly hex glitter, and mainly the same size.  It’s rare now to see a glitter without different sizes or shapes or variety.  That aside, this glitter is a really cool summer popper.

As I was featuring BCL anyway, I thought it would be fun to round up her other Dexter inspired polishes that I own, even if, at the time, I had no idea what genius interpretations they were.  I remember being baffled by the oddity of The Skinner, but now I know who and what he is, it’s perfect :)
