Tangled Inspired Nails

Tangled is one of my absolute favorite Disney movies. I didn't go to see it when it first came out but when I did see it, I rewatched it about five times in the next week. The characters are great, the songs were good, it was super funny…there is nothing bad about this movie. I watched it again this weekend and decided to do a nail look for it.

Purple Flocking

I tried the flocking fad. While in England i got a set that came with nail polish and matching flocking. Not one of my favorites, I have to admit. But it lasted remarkably well, which I wasn't expecting. And it helped that the set, which came with the nail varnish and the flocking, was only £2.

What I used:

Duri Rejuvacote
Accessorize in Purple Passion

Black Matte with Swarovski Crystals

These nails were designed to match a pair of heels. I had a party to go to and I had these heels with a little black dress. I thought it looked very cool. The rhinestones were really impractical, especially because I have very curved nails, so they didn't sit flush with my nails. Even though I put a ton of glue on, they came of very easily. I only had about half left after the party. It was very cool though.

What I used:

Duri Rejuvacote
Zoya in Raven
Illamasqua Matte Top Coat
Swarovski Flatback Crystals in Jet SS16

Black and Holographic Silver

What I used:

Duri Rejuvacote 
Zoya in Raven
OPI in I Snow You Love Me (Christmas Gift)
Ciaté Mini Glitter in Twinkle Toes*
Seche Vite Top Coat (on glitter finger only)

Qtica Extending Top Coat

*Using the Ciaté Glitter: I put my base coat on and while it was still wet I sprinkled the glitter on, like you would if it was glue. Tap off the excess glitter. I waited for that to dry and then I put top coat on and then sprinkled another layer of glitter on while it was still wet. You could put a top coat on to seal it in, but the glitter sticks very well without, and it sparkles much nicer without a topcoat. Also the glitter will stick to the brush of your top coat, so wipe it off after each nail, so you do not contaminate the whole bottle.
