Day 23: Inspired by a Movie


I’m back with the 31 day challenge, hoping to finish it ASAP. This mani is inspired by The Little Mermaid, one of my favorite childhood movies. It’s a subtle take on Ariel’s fin, bra, and hair, as the three colors have the potential to easily clash. So I decided to take a more subtle approach and use the colors as a french tip.

Using Sephora’s Formula X Astronomical, I painted on two coats. Next I used Zoya Purity to freehand a white tip in order to make the colors really pop. I then free-handed the vibrant colors (Zoya Livingston, Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac, Sinful Colors Rise & Shine) over top the white tip.

I hope you liked this manicure, the next prompt is ‘Inspired by a Book.’


Subtle Flowers


Subtle nail art is sometimes my favorite look. I like having the knowledge that my nails are decorated, unknown to others. It’s like having a little secret until people notice.

For my nude base, I used Sephora’s Formula X Astronomical, two coats on each nail. I then added small flower stickers on the base of each nail and one coat of Sally Hansen Strobe Light on my ring finger. Although glittery nail art isn’t my style, I really like this simple design.

Astronomical is a universally flattering nude. I think it’s quite a neutral color, working well for mostly everyone, and makes me look tanned.


Thanks for sticking around, and see you soon!
