Disneyland 60 Diamond Celebration Nail Art Tutorial

Disneyland 60 Diamond Celebration Nail Art Tutorial

This year marks Disneyland's 60th anniversary! The actual birthday is July 17 but Disneyland started the party in May with it's big Diamond Celebration. To commemorate it's big 60th, I'm sharing a tutorial on how to do some diamond nail art fit for the occasion.  It's actually really simple to do and you don't need many supplies for it.  Here it is!

What you'll need:
- Base Clear Coat (I use Seche Clear- crystal clear base coat)
- Blue Nail Polish (I used Sinful Colors "Navy I Do")
- Silver Nail Polish (I used Wet n Wild Fergie "Going Platinum")
- Scotch Tape
- Toothpick (if you choose to do the 'D' for Disneyland)
- Top Coat (I use Seche Vite- Dry Fast Top Coat)

Step 1:  After applying your clear base coat and letting that dry, paint your nails with the blue polish.

Step 2:  When the blue polish is completely dry, use strips of the Scotch tape to create a baseball diamond shape on each of your nails. Skip the ring finger if you want to try to do the 'D' on that nail. *Note: I usually do Steps 2-4 on one or two nails at a time. It can get tricky if you have tape on too many nails at once. 

Use tape to create diamond shape

Step 3:  Take your silver polish and paint within the diamond shape created by the tape. If some of the silver polish spills over the tape it is okay because you will be removing the tape afterwards.

Step 4:  After you are done with the silver polish, carefully remove the tape. 

Step 5:  If you'd like you can do diamonds on all of your nails or you can paint the Disneyland 'D' on your ring finger.  If you want to try adding the D, use a toothpick and the silver polish to create the D shape.  It helps if you practice on paper first.

Step 6:  Once it's all dry, apply a top coat and you're done! Your nails fit right in for Disneyland's Diamond Celebration!

Oh Tanner!

Garrett Clayton (Tanner in Teen Beach Movie) and me

Not exactly nail art related but on the day after I shared my Teen Beach 2 inspired nails, I saw Garrett Clayton at Disney California Adventure! He plays Tanner in both Teen Beach Movie and in the sequel. He was really nice! I told him how my youngest sister also likes the movie. I was able to get a picture with him so I thought I would share it here!

Beach Ball Nails - inspired by Teen Beach 2

Beach ball nails - inpsired by Teen Beach 2

A couple weeks ago, Teen Beach 2 premiered on the Disney Channel.  Although I think the first one is better, the sequel is enjoyable and now there is a new set of catchy songs that get stuck in my head! Summer isn't my favorite season but the movie definitely got me more excited about summer time and I used it as inspiration for my nails!
