..These are a few of my favorite things...

Ok, so I am a huge fan of movies and musical theater...when those two things are combined, it makes me happy :) lol. Growing up my mom would show us movies like My Fair Lady, The Music Man, and Funny Girl...but by far, my favorite movie musical is The Sound of Music! It was a huge part of my childhood, and I am still obsessed with it to this day. This mani is inspired by one of the songs from the movie: "My Favorite Things." The line in the song goes: "raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles, and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with string--these are a few of my favorite things..." Those 5 items are what I tried to capture on my nails.

The base color used for thumb and ring finger is "French Rose" (Rimmel); pointer is "Desert Sun" (China Glaze); middle is "Black Satin" (Rimmel); and pinky is "White on White" (China Glaze).

Colors used for thumb ("raindrops on roses) design are: "Sizzling Red" (Avon), "Exotic Encounters" (China Glaze), and a mixture of "Dreamer" (Revlon) and "White on White.

"whiskers on kittens" was done with "White on White," "Black Satin," "For Audrey" (China Glaze), and "Got a Date To-knight" (OPI).

"bright copper kettles" nail was done with "Lucky Penny" (Avon), "Starry Sky" (Avon), and "Hazy" (Revlon).

"warm woolen mittens" are done with "Noir Emerald."

The pinky was done with "A-Taupe the Space Needle" (OPI) and "White on White."
