31DC2016 Day 23: Movies – Lord of the Rings

Hi everyone!

I was on the fence for a while about what to do for today’s theme. I had an idea for some Lord of the Rings nail art, and I like both the LOTR movies and the books, but I just wasn’t sure how cool the nail art would come out. In the end, I decided to go for it. I’m glad I did, because I love the final outcome! Painted Fingertips | Lord of the Rings nails for the #31DC2016

The base polish here is one I made myself. I’d originally had something darker in mind, but I’m a beginner at making my own polish and this is what I got. Fortunately, I love it, even if it turned out a little different than I’d intended! This is one of my favourites of what I’ve tried so far. It’s also the perfect colour for some Lord of the Rings nail art. Painted Fingertips | Lord of the Rings nails for the #31DC2016

‘One ring to rule them all…’ I pulled out my copy of the book and copied the Elvish writing from the part where Gandalf reads it off the ring. By a happy coincidence, the first phrase fit perfectly across my four nails. Originally, I’d intended to just have more text on my thumbnail, but I didn’t want to add more when I had the whole phrase already. I’m glad, because I think it works out better with the Tower of Sauron I added instead. Painted Fingertips | Lord of the Rings nails for the #31DC2016

It’s relatively simple, but this one was a big win for me! What do you think? In previous years, I’ve done Finding Nemo nails, Rango nails, and Secret Garden nails.
