31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Day 23 - Inspired by a Movie

HELLO friends!  Day 23 of the 31 DAY NAIL ART CHALLENGE!  Day 23 already?!  Really?!  Crazy how quickly this month seems to be flying by!   Today's nails are to be Inspired by a Movie.  I picked my favorite ever!  Can you guess from the color scheme which leading lady inspired these?!


These nails are inspired by The Little Mermaid!  Ariel's main color scheme can be seen in these saran wrap skittles!  I used what felt like a ton of colors for this manicure!  For each nail, I applied the lighter shade first, and once dry, I did the saran wrap technique with the darker color!  On my thumb, I carefully free-handed on the blue chevron.  The colors I used were (lighter listed first, then darker shade, from pinky to thumb): Wet N Wild Wild Shine Red Red, Essie Size Matters, Wet N Wild MegaLast On A Trip, Wet N Wild MegaLast Distrubia, Essie Body Language, Essie Brooch The Subject, OPI Gargantuan Green Grape, Essie Mojito Madness, Essie Bikini So Tini, and China Glaze Ride The Waves.  WHEW!  The thumb is supposed to represent her tail in an abstract way, against the background of the sea!



I loved the subtle contrast and marbled look of this manicure, and once you realize it, it is soooo Ariel inspired!  To make it a bit more magical, I added a coat of China Glaze Snow Globe.


Do you think this mani is "more Ariel" with the glitters or without?  I'm torn...I love it both ways!  I'm off to sing Little Mermaid songs!  Have a great day everyone! <3


Head on over to Sincerely Stephanie and check out what she came up with for movie day!  Steph has been on a roll with her creative nail art!  <3  Click the image below to see all of my 31 Day Nail Art Challenge posts!  Check back tomorrow for my nails inspired by my favorite book!
