Let’s talk about that magic carpet ride. And how it was more inspiring than Jasmine herself. While I did say it was to be a Disney Princess inspired mani I think this fits under the umbrella since Jasmine was sitting on the magic carpet.
Arguments aside, I wanted to the design to reflect what a bystander (or bird) would see of this magical ride. I started off with just the watermarble, but wasn’t satisfied so I added in some clouds and dots to give an impression of the flight.
It took me a while to watch Tangled because let’s face it: I don’t watch movies. Maybe occasionally. But I’m really glad I did because I could once again indulge in the childish wish of if I had magical hair.
I had intended to watermarble a different princess when my muse took hold and tossed Rapunzel at me. I don’t try to fight my muse, but I have to say that this is hands-down the girliest mani I’ve ever worn.
Summer and Disney have always gone hand-and-hand since I was a kid, and since coming home I’ve been on a Disney singing-spree. Amidst my singing and fooling around with polish, I thought it would be a fun challenge to create Disney Princess Inspired manis from watermarbling!
The first princess I was inspired by was Ariel, who is actually not my favorite princess. At all. I think the only common trait I share with Ariel is that we both like to collect junk. But of course, it’s sentimental junk.
Today’s combination of clear skies and 60 degree weather practically begs for a spring-themed watermarble! Due to my growing obsession of this kind of nail art, Charlotte has kindly let me take over Wednesdays to share with you all the magic and fascination of watermarbling!
(please excuse and ignore the chipping and lack of clean up)
There is something incredibly calming about watermarbling. Perhaps it is the process of watching all the colors swirl together to create beauty or it is the knowledge that you at least have some control over something in our chaotic daily lives.
