The Disney Diva - Ursula Nail Art


The Lacquer Legion's theme this month is "Fandom." Where do you even start with that one? There are SO MANY POSSIBILITIES! I've actually done quite a few fanicures in my day. Mythbusters, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Adventure Time...the list goes on. This time, I chose to do more Disney villain nail art. You may recall the Queen of Hearts mani I did recently, and here's another powerful baddie: Ursula from The Little Mermaid!


Here's a fun fact: did you know that Ursula's design was inspired by the drag queen Divine? Makes sense to me. Ursula is a pretty fabulous diva, despite being evil and all. There are some pretty diva-licious Disney characters, but for me, she takes the cake.

For my nail art, I've painted her tentacles on my four fingers and her *ahem* bust and necklace on my thumb.


Polishes used in this nail art include:
Floss Gloss Moon Baby (grey base)
LVX Aster (light purple)
OPI Do You Have This Color In Stock-holm? (dark purple)
Nicole by OPI Hit the Lights (yellow)
American Apparel Hassid (black)


I started each tentacle by painting a dark purple spiral and outlining it with black. Then, I filled the spirals with light purple dots, and stacked a smaller dark purple dot inside it.

Though the process for Ursula's tentacles seems simple enough, they took a while to complete. The hypnotizing spirals really demanded a lot of precision, so I tried to take it slow.

  5. You personified Ursula on your nails. This is fantastic. I love Disney. I love title, Disney Diva. I would have used that for my user name if I had thought of it. That is me. ha ha. Not Ursula, though just a diva who loves Disney more than anything, gasp* yes, even more than polish.

  7. I had no idea that Ursula was based on Divine! I can totally see that now. Plus I'm sure my dad would be proud I know who that is. Haha.

  9. Your nails are amazing, you captured her perfectly. Personally I love Ursula, quite frankly I think she was misunderstood, she was an entrepreneur with two awesome eel pets. How can you hate on her for that?
