Wicked

Today’s prompt was “song” but I decided to go with “musical” instead, because there are too many songs and I gave up trying to pick one to turn into a mani! That being said, I am (back) on a Les Mis kick (best musical ever) and wanted to paint at Les Mis mani but decided a French flag was dumb, so we get one of the many other musicals I love, Wicked!

I have to say, the lighting in Defying Gravity is one of my two favorite light-induced moments in musicals ever (the other being Mirror Blue Night in Spring Awakening), but its easy to come up with something fairly straightforward to paint that is Wicked-related, so here we go!

The inspiration came from a mani by Brit Nails, which was a great (and fast) idea to do most nails as a gradient! And since Elphaba is infinitely cooler than Glinda, there is no white-and-pink here.

Simple yet awesome! And no I have “no one mourns the wicked” stuck in my head. Song accomplished! Enjoy!

  1. This mani is amazing! I’ve always wanted to see the show, but haven’t yet. I’ll make it one of these days!

    These are awesome and the color combo makes them very striking!
    Love them, the hat, and great freehand for Elphaba’s face too!

  3. Love your mani! I saw Wicked last year, and it’s one of my favorites!

  4. Awesome indeed, love that green!!

  5. I was also inspired by a musical: Sweeney Todd! I considered doing Wicked as well because it probably my favorite one but I couldn’t decide on a look for it! Love these!
