Makeup Savvy 15 Day Nail Challenge - Day 13 - Film Inspired

I have been excited and terrified in equal parts by today's challenge.
I had lots of ideas for lots of different films, but I knew what I wanted to do ever since I saw this YouTube video.
Tangled has to be my absolute favourite Disney film, it's the first film I took my daughter to see at the cinema and I loved it just as much as she did I think! So once I saw the Robin Moses Tangled nails there was no going back.






This took hours.
I didn't actually follow Robins tutorial because she uses acrylic paints for hers, as I don't have any acrylic paints I had to use purely nail polish so I just used her finished image and the Tangled poster as my guide.

Obviously mine is not a patch on Robins! 
She is a genius and you just can't get the detail and texture with nail polish that you can with acrylic paints but I am so happy with it and so is my daughter, she will not leave my hands alone!

The colours used are - 
Base - Nails Inc Montrose Place.
Hair - Barry M Lemon Ice Cream, Matt White and Famous by Sue Moxley Nude.
Skin - Barry M Nude mixed with a tiny bit of Peach Melba then the highlights and shadows were done with Barry M Matt White and Famous by Sue Moxley Nude.
Rapunzles eyes - Barry M Mint Green, Black and Matt White.
Flynns hair and eyes - Barry M Mushroom, Black and Matt White.
Flowers - Barry M Peach Melba, Tangerine, Berry Ice cream and Bright Purple.
And I think that was everything!

If you are not following Robins work yet you should be!
You can find her on YouTube, Pinterest and her Blog.

Don't say I didn't warn you!

  5. Alexis, you did this ALL WITH NAIL POLISH? You deserve to win the entire challenge and every nail art competition after that. Unbelievable, I've tried to do some Robin Moses tutorials before and it's hard enough to do with acrylics! And FYI, I prefer your characters faces to Robins. UN-BE-LIEVABLE.
