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).

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.

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.

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).

Hope you enjoyed! Stay tuned for Jafar!

Mario!

Princess day! Inspired by Chalkboard Nails which is to say I wanted to do Princess Peach and hers were the best ones I could find to work with.

I started with a nude base, using one of the other new (old, on sale) Sephora X polishes I picked up a few weeks ago. This one is called Marvelous. While the color is very pretty, it is also incredibly sheer! If you have pretty nails and want to go for a simple french, this would be a great polish. However, my nails are a bit of a mess (read: stained) and it took 4 coats to reach the opacity you see here. It wasn’t even 100% opaque! I gave up anyway because my nails were getting thick.

I am not going to list all the polishes I used, partially because I don’t think it matters specifically, and partially because I’m not 100% sure on some of them!

Anyway, we have Toad (pinky), Princess Peach (ring), Mario (middle), Luigi (pointer), and a very sad looking Bowser (thumb) that we are going to ignore. The only Mario game I actually play is Mariokart, but I always play as Peach so this seems fair!

Hope you enjoyed! I should warn you…this ends the prompts I did even remotely well. I don’t even have anything for Thursday (inspired by your bag? Really? My purse is black. No thank you and I am tired of 31 days without break).
