31-Day Challenge #23: inspired by a movie

I don't know about you, but my favorite Disney movie of all time is The Lion King. I've watched it probably at least a hundred times, and I've seen the musical twice. I gave myself a very ambitious (for me) goal for this challenge, which was to recreate this scene from "Hakuna Matata":

I was terrified the whole time that I was going to do something horribly wrong and have to start the whole thing over, but miraculously that didn't happen!

OK, Simba's expression looks more doofy than carefree. But all things considered I'm pretty darn pleased with myself. :-D

I used a zillion polishes for this (in many cases I mixed two or more colors together):
  • Sinful Colors Snow Me White
  • Revlon Stiletto
  • Julep Otte
  • L'Oreal L'Orange
  • L'Oreal Spice Things Up
  • L'Oreal Caught Red-Handed
  • OPI My Vampire is Buff
  • L'Oreal Not a Cloud in Sight
  • Essie Sand Tropez
  • Julep Parker
  • Sally Hansen Blue Me Away!

Don't forget to check out today's other movie-themed manis, and remember...ya gotta put your behind in your past!


  1. This is awesome! Go you!

  2. Woah! Well done :-) It isn't often that someone paints well enough that I can pick out the exact SCENE from the movie based on a tiny link-up photo.

  3. Fantastic job! Sometimes going out of your comfort zone can result in some awesome nail art!
