LOSTathon: Season 2

There's so much that happens in every episode of Lost, let alone a whole season! For season 2's manicure, I wanted to do a design that I could abstract across all of my nails and I immediately thought of the awesome black-light map that pops up on the blast door in the Swan station during Locke's lockdown (during the episode entitled "Lockdown" - ha). Since this episode is pretty far into the second season, we've already been inside of the hatch (and pushed the numbers over and over), been introduced to the Dharma Initiative (and watched the video), had some run-ins with The Others, and even experienced most of the story arc including the few members of the tail section. 

Other LOST ladies:
Bee at Bee Polished
Debbie at The Crumpet
Kirsten at Geeky Owl
Emma (meee! *waves*) right here at Manicurity
