Our “Favorite Nail Polishes” series is getting the royal treatment today as we bring you the perfect polishes to design your own Cinderella mani. Cinderella is everything we love about magical Disney moments, so your manicure inspired by her Fairy Godmother-designed dress should be equally as beautiful. Blue nail polish might be a given, but seeing as Cinderella rocks the monochromatic look, your accent polishes may not be as obvious. If you’re not sure where to go from there, we’ve got you covered!
Check out our top picks for rocking a lovely Cinderella mani:
If we had to pick out Cinderella’s signature color, it would definitely be blue! Her dress features a couple shades of this pastel color, so we wanted to pull a few options that varied in tone. We have more classic blues like these OPI and Zoya polishes, as well as the Nails Inc. and Julep shades that are slightly more periwinkle. Don’t be afraid to play around with different blues that compliment your skin tone!
We can’t do a Cinderella mani without a nod to her gorgeous glass slippers. There are a couple different ways you can go for the perfect glass slipper polish–glitter, chrome, holographic. So many options! We selected one of our favorite chrome polishes from Ciate if you want a sleek, reflective silver. For a chunkier glitter, we love Formula X’s Wham! and Marc Jacobs Glinda.
Pink is a lovely compliment to blue and silver, so we wanted to include a couple pale pinks inspired by Cinderella’s rosy lips. Look for a pink that isn’t too neon, like these from Essie and MAC, since you ultimately want it to be an accent color to the star shades.
Just like Cinderella’s choker is the perfect accessory for her ensemble, a thin, black nail art striper is the finishing touch for your Cinderella mani. China Glaze and Sally Hansen are two brands that feature thin brushes specifically for nail art! If you already own a black polish with a normal brush, you can use a thin paintbrush or toothpick to create the same effect.
We can’t wait to see the beautiful Cinderella mani you create! Show us on Instagram by tagging #DisneyStyle.
