Jafar

***sorry this post is late, my wordpress just broke! I wasn’t able to post this at all on either of my two browsers…apparently only chrome will work. Go figure. Hopefully chrome keeps working so I can keep posting, but it has been a painful day!***

So Jafar? Coolest villain outfit. It’s dark and creepy with lots of gold and red. Also his facial hair is EPIC. That said, it was darn difficult to paint!

IMG_5856

Most versions of Jafar that I could find used in nail art were either too simple, too complex (I cannot paint faces) or just boring. So, I mostly made this up!

IMG_5871

My pinky is supposed to be Jafar’s body, but since he is super freaky skinny, it mostly just looks like a weird hourglass? My ring finger has his hat, and the beginning of his awesome red feather. The middle finger is supposed to be his snake staff, but my snake-skin stamp was misbehaving. Pointer is the top of Jafar’s outfit and his awesome beard. The thumbs it intended to be a VERY stylized Iago, the obnoxious parrot.

Here, again, I did not write down which polishes I was using as I painted! I can guess at most of them, but I don’t know if it matters. Let me know if there are any ones you are curious about.

IMG_6549

Out of all the Disney manis I have geared up and planned, only this one and the 101 Dalmatians one had better heroes/princesses than villains! All the other manis, the villains look a lot better. You can tell where my loyalty lies! Hope you enjoyed!

Princess Jasmine

This mani was painted just after I bought my newest brown (aka back in May), which I decided was perfect for Jasmine’s skin. I think this was the first complete villains + heroes mani I did, the ones I did before this were either villains only or heroes only (and I completed the set later on).

IMG_6508

As last time, this time, with 101 Dalmatians and Cruella daVille I am starting with the “heroes” mani for the movie Aladdin. Obviously, the focus is on Princess Jasmine: her outfit (pointer and pinky) and her hair (ring finger). I got to use one of my favorite techniques again (stamping over an awesome metallic pattern) on my middle finger to make Raja the tiger, and my thumb is the Sultan’s feathered hat.

IMG_5860

Some of the colors aren’t 100% accurate to the movie, for example Raja in the movie is just orange, but I figured artistic liberties would be acceptable 😀 Unfortunately, I did not write down which colors I used! I know the magnetic polish and the brown, but I can only guess at the others. I own just a few too many similarly-toned blue/teal polishes! Oops.

IMG_6515

In retrospect, it might have been fun to include Aladdin’s fez or outfit, but I think I am sticking to mostly princesses and their side-kicks, rather than including the male heroes in these manicures. It just seems more feminist (and they tend to wear clothing that translates to nail art better).

IMG_5842

Hope you enjoyed! Stay tuned for Jafar!

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.

IMG_6260

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 😀

IMG_6241

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!

IMG_9714

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.

~ Brown: Zoya – Dea
~ Red: OPI – Visions of Love
~ Yellow: Maybelline – Citrus Collide
~ Nude: Zoya – Charlotte
~ Blue: Zoya – Rocky

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