Considering I am a chick who never watched much Star Trek growing up, I will give you my thoughts on the two movies.
A Non Trekkie Chick Guide to Khan from Star Trek:
1- When I watched the original, I was immediately intrigued by Khan's attire. I know I have seen this outfit on Lady Gaga, but she did not have the boobs to pull it off like Khan does. It's daring, but who is gonna mess with a dude dressed like that with man boobs that big?! I dare you! Plus one for Original Khan!
2- Holy Canoly Batman! Benedict Cumberbatch has the SEXIEST VOICE EVER! He is like "blah, blah, I'm going to destroy you," and I'm all fangirling like "OK!!!" Plus he doesn't look half bad in that black outfit ;) Plus one for New Khan!

3- It seems like the cockier the bad guy is, the more I love him (just ask my husband)! Plus one for both Khans!
4- Both Khans really want to destroy the world, and that's not cool :/ Minus one for both Khans!
5- I am in such awe watching the New Khan's monologue about his crew, but I can not help to notice that when he gets mad, he looks kinda like a V. Raptor from Jurassic Park :/ We know those Raptors were super smart, but seriously up to no good! Minus one for New Khan.

6- OmG! THE FREAKING OLD KHAN PUTS DISGUSTING WORMY BUGS IN PEOPLE'S EARS! EEEEEEWWWWW!!!! GROSS! Minus one for Original Khan!
So basically, it all boils down to who would you rather get into a fight with in a dark alley??? A dude with a mullet, killer sense of style showing off his huge man boobs, and bugs that crawl in your ear??? Or the sexiest sounding dinosaur that is bent on destroying the planet???
Well, that world domination sounds all good and fun, but I rather stay home and mix a nail polish based on Khan.
I have started a hobby that has now grown into an obsession. Making my own original polish from scratch is my zen time. I love watching the glitter mix and see how everything comes together. Even if the polish turns out as ugly as those ear worms (shudder) it was incredibly soothing to make. Mixing polish is the eye to my hurricane. Everything around me is twisting out of control, but I am at peace in the center of all the chaos. Please, please bear with my nubs and pitiful paint job. My nails were crushed in my wreck a month ago. They are finally growing out, but break right at the tip. Also I still have not gotten used to painting my nails with my franken thumb. It is numb and hurts at the same time, which makes painting very awkward and uncomfortable. I still try! Lol!!!
Without further ado, I introduce you to "Khan: Mad, Bad, and Fabulous"
Sorry the pics are not great. Since I do not have a light box, my stove light and iphone will have to do for now. ;(http://cultnails.com/), Khan: Mad, Bad, and Fabulous (made by me), and Digital Nails ANGTFD quick drying top coat (from http://www.etsy.com/shop/DigitalNails)
Also, if you actually made it this far in my post you need to be rewarded! I will let you in on a little secret!!!! All of the glitter used in Khan came from a fantastic new website called Didspade.com! I hate revealing secrets this good, but since they are so awesome at Didspade, I must tell the world about them!! Plus they are so freaking friendly, with the best customer service, that I just keep giving all of my money to them! Lol!!!!
Please drop me a comment and let me know what you think about Khan, super villain and polish :)
