I went to see Matilda the musical on Friday so I did Matilda nails in celebration!
They’re based on this book cover (I got the image from Roald Dahl Fans online) but with the yellow background I remember from my copy when I was little. (As a bookish child I was obviously obsessed with Matilda who is not only a bookworm but completely BADASS.) The other nails are supposed to be stacks of books but I don’t know how clear that is!
I used way too many polishes in this manicure to name but the background is Boots 17 in Sherbert Lemon. Matilda’s face and hair are both acrylic paint and the books are a variety of different polishes.
As for the show itself… it was awesome! Tim Minchin’s songs are completely amazing and the kids who were playing Matilda and her class were wonderful. I would highly recommend a visit to anybody who can afford it (I had to wait to get tickets as a present). For a more affordable taster, you could also check out this YouTube video of the cast performing at the Olivier Awards 2012. Top stuff!
