Recently I desperately needed some retail therapy. So, naturally, I turned to nail art and went on a MoYou London stamping plate spree. I decided to get the entire Hipster, Lingo and Literature collections during one of their awesome sales.
The packet was huge! It was so heavy and I couldn’t stop looking at it for weeks; dreaming up future designs. One plate on the other hand had me puzzled. I had no idea how I would use it.
Lingo 07. A plate that contained the entire alphabet… In sign language…
My mother-in-law got hold of a voucher for 2-for-1 movie tickets. So, therefore, we couldn’t let the opportunity pass us by. We decided that A Quiet Place looked like an awesome movie and after seeing the trailer I instinctively knew how I am going to use Lingo 07.
For those of you that are not familiar with the movie, it is about a family’s struggle to survive after aliens have occupied Earth. These vicious aliens are blind, but they have heightened hearing and therefore they will attack anything that makes a noise. The family has to live in silence to survive, speaking only in sign language to their deaf daughter and whispering when it is safe to do so.
I decided to spell out Quiet Place stamping on the appropriate sign language for each letter. The yellow popped against the grey, making it really stand out. I loved the result!
What do you think? What design would you like to see next?

Thank you so much!!! I’m very flattered ☺️xx
That movie got me, he did a great job directing. Since it was so quiet in the theater you could hear ever squeal, gasp, and sigh. I’m loving your nails! I wish I could do mine as beautifully, it just looks like I spilled the colors all over my fingers.

I loved the movie too! Some movie-goers were crunching on their popcorn so loudy that other people told them off! 😂😂
Thank you for the lovely compliment, I must say, it has taken me years to get here – I thought ‘simple design, should be quick’ but it still took over 2 hours! 🤨
