#31DC2013 Inspired By A Song - Michael Jackson's Beat It


Today's inspiration was easy for me - I've been watching MJ's Beat It video constantly for the past couple days because I suddenly needed to learn all the choreography in the video.  I've got most of the steps down, but there are some parts that I just can't get.  I love it though - I know I'll randomly start dancing it while I'm in line somewhere because I'm nuts like that.

With all the video replay(I'm currently limited to only playing it a max of five times a night right now by my DH), I have MJ's outfit vividly seared into my mind.  This is the video where he wore his iconic red jacket that everyone in the 80's needed to immediately own after seeing.




To start, I used LA Splash Red Sea for my base on the ring and middle finger.  I placed studs on my ring finger with a toothpick, and then stamped a zipper using Wet n Wild black creme and a BM plate.  My white on the ring and pinky is Zoya Purity, stamped with a piano to represent MJ's t-shirt in the beginning of the video.  The black and white pink is a take on his white socks peeking out of his black pants and shoes.  I finished with Zoya Storm on my thumb to add some bling.

I showed my DH my nails and asked him what he thought, and his first response was, "Those are Michael Jackson nails!"  Mission accomplished!  *starts doing the beat it dance*

I'm excited to see what the other ladies came up with for today!
