We're Off To See The Wizard

Dahlia Nails
My nail art seems to come in waves of inspiration. At the moment I am creating a lot of mix and match designs based on books, music videos, and films. You can see what I mean here and here, and no doubt there'll be a couple more over the next few weeks. I'd be very surprised if you couldn't see where the inspo for today's mani but then I forget that not everyone is as old as I am! In case you don't know they are inspired by The Wizard of Oz (film rather than book).

I have been waiting to do this mani for quite a long time. Lots of different variations have been jotted down in my notebook but I finally settled on this. I am really pleased with the result as it's simple but instantly (I hope) recognisable. I have gone for some iconic aspects of the film: the ruby slippers, Dorothy's gingham dress, the Yellow Brick Road, Wicked Witch of the West stockings, and the Emerald City. 

A bit out of season but I think these would make for a cute Halloween mani. 

I'm on a bit of a roll at the moment with this sort of thing so let me know if you have any requests. Or any requests in general: film, art, TV, books, anything!
