Hello lovelies!
I’m really excited about today’s post so I’m not going to waste anytime on an intro.
Onto the nails!

Major brownie points to anyone who can figure out what movie this nail art was inspired by!

Here’s what I used:
Did you guess it, did you guess it, did you guess it?! If not, these were by inspired by Jurassic Park aka my favorite movie (series)! More specifically these were inspired by the cars from the movie.

These nails started with one coat of White On, which I let dry completely. Then using a make up sponge, I sponged on the gradient with Tilda and Pull Over. The red details were just freehanded on with the detail brush. When I was finished, everything was sealed in with a layer of HK Girl.

I don’t know if anyone will understand these nails unless they watch Jurassic Park but these make me want to watch it right now! Someone do my work for me so I can have a movie night haha 😛
Thanks for reading guys!

  • Haha I'm sure it scared me too but when I re-watched it as an over-tired college kid, it was my favorite thing ever! Thanks!

  • Thanks! (:

  • Yay!! I'm glad someone else loves it too!

  • Haha yay! Thank you!

  • Haha I need to watch it soon! I have so much school work though that I never have time. But I think the 2nd one is my least favorite, I don't know….I just really like when Alan Grant is there and I mean in the 3rd one, the Billy Brennan character is nice to look at (;

  • Thank you!!

  • Haha awww, go watch it! (:

  • Awww I hoped they loved it! I really need to re-watch it soon!

  • Haha thank you!

  • Haha I use to watch it on VHS too! I randomly rewatched like two years ago at school and I've been hooked ever since. I used to watch it at least once a week……whoops! Thank you!

  • Haha thank you!!

  • Haha yeah, I understand not everyone likes it. But thank you!

  • Thank you!

  • Oh my, that movie scared the bejeezus out of me as a kid! But your nail art is amazing 😀

  • Pretty! 🙂

  • Oh I totally see it now! Cute cute! I love Jurassic Park too!

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    I didn't know what movie they were from, but once you said it I was like "OHH I see it!!" Love the mani and the inspiration for it!

  • I love Jurassic Park! Hubby and I ( he more-so than me ) watched it not that long ago!! The first and the second movies are my favorites. This is a cute interpretation and I TOTALLY GOT IT!!!

  • Loving the inspiration on this one! Such a neat idea! Adorable!

  • The Dalai Lama’s Nails

    I haven't seen Jurassic Park in ages! I didn't get it!

  • Color Me So Crazy

    That is so cute! Jurassic Park. Yes! It totally makes sense! My kids just watched this for the first time and it brought me back to when I used to love this movie! Ahh.. the good old days!

  • Ok I totally didn't get it, but then I totally did. Really, really cute!

  • I was thinking Ninja Turtles, but Jurassic Park totally makes sense. It has been forever since I watched that movie! I think my parents still have it on VHS 🙂 Great look!

  • It's been years since I've seen JP so I didn't guess but they are super cute!

  • I am not a fan of Jurassic Park but they are totally the same as those cars!!! Great job!

  • Looks great!
