Cruella deVille

This is actually the first of the “newer” Disney manis that I did! I found the previous two (memo and dalmatians) in my unposted folder and decided to use them as the jumping to point to EVEN MORE DISNEY.

I actually think I ended up doing paired manis for almost everything at this point (heroine + sidekick and then one for the villain). I am not shy to say that most of my villain manis came out better than my heroine manis 😀

Obviously, this is the companion post to Wednesday’s 101 dalmations! This was inspired by Cruella deVille. You don’t get to see my thumb because it was an idea that did NO pan out properly. The rest of the mani was inspired by Hot Pink Zebra Polish!

The question becomes: do I want to post ALL THE DISNEY MANIS in a row? Or do a disney week per month? I don’t know! I guess we shall see next week :-D. Any requests? Specific movies you guys want to see? Painting disney is fun!

101 Dalmatians

Another Disney mani that I’ve been sitting on since 2016…July, actually. How sad is that? These are so cute though!

IMG_9723

I wanted to do each collar a different color, but when I went back and looked, only the mom and dad dog (Perdita and Pongo) had really distinct collars that were not just the same as all the puppies!

IMG_3859

The design itself was inspired by @banicured_. Puppies! And Disney! I’ve wanted a dog for a long time, and this makes it worse…only, I can’t imagine that I wouldn’t end up with dog hair ruining my manis!

I thought about writing “101” on my thumb, but honestly, this was surprisingly quick and easy and I didn’t want to ruin it with trying to make words! Or numbers. Either way.

IMG_3870

Did any of you guys have a favorite puppy from 101 Dalmations? Hope you enjoyed!

Nemo and Dory

I painted these in May of 2016…so I should probably actually post them. I just wanted to wait until I had enough disney-themed manis to post them all in a week! Whoops.

IMG_8730

This mani was inspired by Finding Nemo. Yes, these are super-stylized, yes I still think it’s cool!

IMG_3478

I got the idea from Klo’s to me, although she used much brighter aqua for her underwater…I wish I had a similar blue but I just don’t! So mine is more of a teal-based blue. Either way, I loved her idea for the surf!

That’s all for today! Any other Disney or Pixar movies I should work on painting (I mean, and hopefully posting less than a year after they were initially painted)?

THE CLAW

Aka Toy Story nails! I know I can do better than this (my proportions are off) but they make me happy, so be it!

IMG_6968

I got my inspiration from Trashedandlacquered, but I can’t find the original design! Oops. These are supposed to be the little green alien squeeze toys, but I made both their antennae and ears too big. Maybe I’ll try this again at some point (although I doubt it…) and do it better? I already went back and edited my nails after adding top coat. I really should have looked at a photo first!

IMG_7012

Someday (soon?) I’ll do a Pixar and/or Disney nail art marathon. It’ll be great. Any requests? :-p

That’s all for today! Beware the Claw and make sure you always come in peace 😀

Pocahontas

“Can you paint with all the colors of the wiiiiiiind”. Today is movie day, and of course I had to do something Disney (well, or Pixar) and since my boyfriend is out missing (aka at work even though I painted this over the weekend) I thought I’d do a homage to his least-favorite disney movie, Pocahontas! In his words: it’s as if someone made a movie about the holocaust where the jews and germans made friends and no one died. So, I get it, but I still think the movie is beautiful.

IMG_7227

Unfortunately, I don’t own a color even close to Pocahontas’ skin tone, so I went darker rather than lighter. Despite that, I think the end product looks ok!

IMG_0016

From pinky to thumb, we have the end of her dress, her necklace, her arm tattoo, the top of her dress, and some semblance of hair in the wind. Or maybe the branches of Grandmother Willow, I don’t actually know which! Free-form wavy things.

Hope you enjoyed! I was torn between Pocahontas and Lilo and Stitch, so maybe next time there will be some Stitch nail art!

Cinderella’s Carriage

I have been staring at this bit of nail art by jamylyn_nails for months, and only now finally had the time to try it…and a new blue polish to try it with!

IMG_5415

The base is an OPI I got on sale at ULTA called Yoga-ta Get This Blue. I feel like I saw something I wanted to replicate that used this polish a few months ago, but I can’t for the life of me figure out where the design went! Anyway. Blue (that name is too long. Ugh. OPI, I get it, you are being cute but ENOUGH ALREADY) covered nicely in two thin coats. It was actually a one-coater but I smudged my middle finger so I did two coats everywhere! This polish is wonderfully opaque and I can’t wait to try stamping with it! Totally a steal for $4 😀

IMG_5299

The design took a little over an hour to complete, which was far less time than I had assumed it would take! The pumpkin coach was a pain, but the curlicues were fun! The original design had Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother on the pinky, but I didn’t have the patience to try…or acrylic paint! So, we just get sparkles.

IMG_5400

Colors
~ Blue: OPI – Yoga-ta Get This Blue
~ White: Salon Perfect – Sugar Cube
~ Gold: Wet n’ Wild – Gold Album
~ Mint: Maybelline – Green with Envy
~ Bright green: Essie – The More The Merrier
~ Green: Sinful Colors – Exotic Green
~ Pink: Zoya – Veronica

IMG_9401

In other news, the gold on the pumpkin was the wrong gold…I have two gold dense glitters and I grabbed the less dense one! No wonder I had so much trouble. Go figure. I need to label my polishes better.

IMG_9406

Hope you enjoyed! This has rekindled my Disney-lust, so if I get a few hours to myself I’ll do another princess mani soon 🙂

Frozen

Every year, I pick my favorite movie of the year. This year, hands down, the winner was Disney’s recent movie Frozen. It is amazing. The animation is fantastic, the singing is mind-blowing (more on that later), and the plot is awesome (and feminist!). I have been singing the songs from it for two weeks now. If you like Pixar movies, go see it. Disney took another Pixar idea and made it their own…complete with pre-movie short! My design is modeled on the clothing worn by the two main characters.

IMG_5984

frozen-anna-elsa

My accent nail is Anna’s dress, which she wears for most of the movie. The rest of the nails are Elsa’s dress, from after she accepts her place as the snow queen. Although you can barely tell, underneath all that glitter is a blue-to-teal gradient! I am very proud.

IMG_5981

In short, Frozen is the tale of two orphaned princesses, one with power and one without, who try to save their kingdom from ice. They are both helped and hindered by men, a snowman, a reindeer, and trolls. The best part of the movie, by far, is the singing. The lead (Elsa) is played by Idina Menzel, known as the original Elphaba in Wicked and Maureen in RENT. And boy, can she sing.
