Disney Pixar's Brave nail art

I'm really excited about this! Brave is the brand new Disney Pixar film that is coming out this summer. It's set in the Highlands of Scotland about a feisty ginger princess who defies her parents, gets mixed up with curses & gets in all sort of bother. There's no doubt a positive, life-affirming message alongside lovely music and visuals. Lovely stuff. 

The European premiere is also the Closing Night Gala of the Edinburgh Film Festival which is also good because I love the EIFF! They always kick off festival summer season perfectly for me, and I love that every year I see films that I wouldn't take a chance on the rest of the year round (they might not always be my cup of tea, but that's all part of the experience).

Anyway. That all in mind, I was keen to give Brave-inspired nail art a go! I really enjoyed doing  Avengers nails earlier in the year, and thought this would hopefully be a little easier as I was essentially "just" recreating a cartoon. Ha.

Horse, Bow & Arrow, Merida, Tartan, a Castle 
I'm not going to lie. It took a while.

Swirl, Tartan, Merida's hair, Queen Elinor, Stone Circle 
But I'm pretty pleased with it!

I just used my phone to take screenshots of the trailer and then tried to pick out a few easy images that fit the theme and would fit on my nails! This definitely isn't an everyday manicure, but it was worth it even just to see how much steadier I am painting with my left hand than when I first started this blog!

(I am SUCH a child, I know. Don't judge me!).
