Disney Challenge: Inspired by Belle

Beauty and the Beast was one of my favorite movies as a kid. I saw the movie in theaters eleven times when it first came out and I've gone to the re-releases with my mom. I originally was thinking of doing a yellow or gold manicure to match Belle's ball gown, but blue is more my speed so this manicure was inspired by the blue and white outfit she wears throughout the first part of the movie.

I used two coats of OPI Don't Touch My Tutu for the white jelly base. For the glitter gradient I used  OPI Gone Gonzo, OPI Crown Me Already, Happy Hands I Blue Myself, and Sally Hansen Blingtastic. I smoothed everything out with a coat of Gelous and one coat of HK Girl. I aboslutely loved how this turned out. I actually wore this back in March when I saw the Beauty and the Beast Broadway play in downtown Sacramento.

So much glitter!!!
