Lights In The Sky

Tangled Nail Art

The "lights in the sky" are what eventually give Rapunzel the courage to leave her tower.  Today's mani is pretty simple in terms of freehand painting.  Initially, I was going to do the whole lantern scene with Rapunzel and Flint in the boat, but it didn't look good, so I scraped it and started over.  Luckily, acrylic paint wipes off with some water.  I went with a single lantern instead for the eighth look in my Disney series.

I like to have a range of difficulty levels, so although this is not what I had planned, it works for an intermediate nail design.

The polish, Let Your Hair Down (pictured first), is from the Unlock The Spell set by Beautifully Disney.

Nail Polish

Polish Used:
  • Beautifully Disney Unlock the Spell - Let Your Hair Down
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Deep Purple
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Acrylic paint - yellow, red, and white
  • Nail art brush
  • Makeup sponge

I LOVE the gradient on this nail!  As mentioned above, it was going to be the background to the lantern scene, so I paired the Beautifully Disney polish with a dark purple for a sunset gradient look.  To create this look:
  1. Apply the pink base color using Let Your Hair Down.

  2. Use a wet makeup sponge to create the gradient with Let Your Hair Down and Deep Purple.

  3. Use acrylic paint and a nail art brush to paint a yellow lantern on the middle finger.  Use some orange for shading and to paint the sun on the lantern.
