Twinsie Tuesday: Disney Inspired

Hi all! I feel like it's been ages since I posted! Well I am back for our Twinsie post today and the theme is "Disney Inspired".  I had to go with one of my favorites, The Little Mermaid.  Side note: In my mind, this is a "newish" Disney movie still. Out of curiosity, I googled around and found that I was 10 when it came out. Holy cow. I clearly remember going to see this with my siblings and my Mom during a school vacation, and feeling like I was "too old" to like cartoons anymore (but secretly, I wanted to be a mermaid still and was in love with the movie). But, I digress....

Instead of absolutely butchering the theme with what was sure to be a horrible attempt at some Ariel nail art, I skipped ahead and did some skittles (meaning, each nail a different color) and topped them each with corresponding glitter. I tried to fade the glitter, in a gradient type of effect, starting mid-way through the nail and then adding another layer to just the tips.

There's red of course, for Ariel's amazing hair (Nicole by OPI Please Red-Cycle topped with CND Red Sparkle); Purple for Ariel's shell bikini top (Nicole by OPI Love Song topped with Julep Brooke); 2 different shades of teal representing the 2 colors of Ariel's mermaid tail (ring finger- Zoya Wednesday topped with Urban Outfitters Sea Dust...pinkie-Essie Where's My Chauffeur? topped with Essie Pure Pearlfection); and lastly, I couldn't leave out Ariel's little buddy, Flounder (thumb- Zoya Darcy topped with OPI Oy-Another Polish Joke!). Um, the yellow gold combo is something I MUST do in a full mani ASAP.
