Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast Nail Art

Belle is the third of four polishes in the Disney Fairytale Nail Polish set.  For this look, the tips of the nails are painted to look like Belle's gown.

I used the same technique with the scrapbooking scissors mentioned in the Snow White post, to create the fringe of the dress.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Disney Fairytale - Belle
  • Ulta - Sun-Sational
  • Wet n Wild - French White Crème
Other Supplies:
  • Gold nail tape
  • Scotch tape
  • Patterned scrapbook scissors

This design is really fast and simple. To create this look:
  1. Apply a gold base color to all nails.
  2. Use patterned scrapbook scissors to cut the scotch tape for the fringe of the dress.  Since the dress design is a chevron, it will be easiest to cut two fringe pieces per nail instead of trying to cut the tape in a chevron shape.
  3. Apply two piece of fringed tape to each nail, and paint the tip in white.
  4. Using yellow polish, paint a chevron tip, leaving just a little white fringe below.  You can use a chevron tip vinyl sticker if you want, our you can just paint it by hand since the lines don't need to be perfect since they'll be covered.
  5. Apply gold nail tape in a chevron to separate the white fringe from the yellow.  Seal everything with clear top coat.
