Musical Mani Monday, week 2: Culture Club - Karma Chameleon

Ok so I have joined in on the nail challenge Rainbowify Me started last monday called Musical Mani Monday where she has chosen a number of songs  to translate into nail art inspired by the lyrics, the music video or the name of the song.

Here's a list of the songs she chose

So I missed the first one which was Marina and the Diamonds - Radioactive, but you can se Rainbowify Me's interpretation of it.

Today it's Culture Club - Karma Chameleon. A very well known song from the 80's.

I was very much in doubt about what I wanted to do and what I wanted to use for inspiration. At first I thought a duochrome polish would be perfect for it, but then I realized that I don't have any decent duochromes *sigh*, so that idea kinda died. Then I saw the music video and at some point he sings:

"Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
You come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
Red gold and green, red gold and green."

And I immediately caught the red, gold and green part and I settled on using those colors. Unfortunately I was in a bit of a hurry, so I ended up with a very simple design that I'm not quite satisfied with, but this is what I ended up with:

I apologize that my fingers look very red, but because the lighting was bad outside and the sun was almost setting when I took the photos, I had to edit them a bit so you could see the true color of the polishes which seemed more important than red fingers.

I used OPI - Green-Wich Village as base color. Then I first painted China Glaze - Passion on the tips and then OPI - Manicurist of Seville on top of that and finished of with a top coat.

What do you think about the design?

Oh and here is the musik video, in case you want to see it: 

Next monday it will be Aerosmith - Pink. Stay tuned!

See what the other bloggers that have entered the challenge ended up with:


  1. I like the design a lot - simple as it is. Simple often does it for me :)
    You need to put a decent duochrome on your wishlist! ;)

    1. I like the design as well, but the colors just aren't that great together. I regret I didn't choose a darker red and green instead. I think CG - Heart of Africa and CG - Agro would have been better together :)

      I sure do. I just have no idea which ones to wish for ;)
