And All That Nail Wraps! Inspired by the Musicals (Part 1)

“We’re all in this together…”, “Mamma Mia, here we go again…”, “Never enough, never, never…”, “I got my ticket for the long way round…”, “And all, that, jazzzzzz…”There's something about musicals that just makes your heart sing. They capture the essence of love in a way that regular movies simply can't. The emotions are so powerful that they can't be contained in just words alone--they have to be delivered in song. And sometimes, love is so strong that you just have to dance. 

Music and movies have been a part of our daily lives, whether it’s to hang out with our friends or family or unwind and sing our hearts out at carpool karaoke.  It also helps us express our emotions or lighten our mood after a long, fulfilling day.  That said, we’d love to get your nails inspired by some of our favorite musicals! 

From The Greatest Showman, which features catchy musical numbers and daring acrobatic feats, to Chicago, when we want to feel old Hollywood vibes or whether it’s unleashing your inner pop artist and imagination through the flashy, magical characters in Sing and Frozen, or you have a bunch of friends let’s hop on a musical journey with the nail wraps that will make you feel all that jazz!

The World of Musicals

Musicals are absolutely fantastic! I always get excited when I have the chance to see one - they're full of energy and excitement, with catchy tunes and amazing dance numbers. The stories are fast-paced, captivating and dramatic, and the music is simply unforgettable. 

Wondering where musicals originated? According to Fact Monster, the combination of comic stories and music hall songs originated in England in the late 19th century, and boy was that just the beginning. With the development of musicals in the Broadway theater district of New York City in the early 20th century, we can only imagine what highly entertaining music and dance shows will look like in the years to come.

Did you know that The Jazz Singer, which premiered in 1927, was the first movie musical according to the Sundance Film Festival? It's incredible to think that this groundbreaking film was the first to feature synchronized sound and lip-synched songs, giving audiences a whole new level of entertainment. For the first time, viewers could hear actual songs on film, which was truly revolutionary.

Back in the day, Busby Berkeley was educating us on the strange world of showgirls with long legs. Ten years later, Ginger Rogers was creating a stir with Fred Astaire, dancing in reverse and wearing high heels. The movie musical was not just a fad, it was an absolute must-see spectacle. 

It's pretty cool how so many Broadway shows have made their way to the big screen over the years! Some of them have become absolute classics, like The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, and Fiddler on the Roof. And there have been some more modern adaptations too, like Chicago, Rent, and In the Heights. But as we all know, not every movie version is a hit, like that 2019 version of Cats - maybe it will make a grand comeback and regain its spotlight once more.

Whether on stage or screen, it's amazing to see the amount of talent and dedication that goes into these productions, both on stage and behind the scenes. And when a musical really hits the spot, it can keep audiences coming back for more for years to come. 

There really is nothing quite like a great musical, and what better way to show our support than by flashing some gorgeous nail wraps that will make you want to sing and dance? Keep calm and aca-believe it! We have some extraordinary designs that are inspired by our beloved musicals. We are eager to share them with you, and without further ado, we will be presenting them shortly for your enjoyment. Prepare to be amazed!

La La Land

The characters in musicals have a unique perspective on love, and they express it in a way that's truly artful. They sing, they dance, and they transcend the mundane to become something greater--something more beautiful, more pure, and closer to true romance.

La La Land is such a beautiful film about love and dreams, and how the two impact each other. The chemistry between Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) and Mia (Emma Stone) is palpable, and their passion for their respective crafts is truly inspiring.  Los Angeles is filled with dreamers, and sometimes it takes a partner to make your dream come true.

The way they support each other and push each other to achieve their goals is a testament to the strength of their relationship. And of course, the music and dancing are simply breathtaking. It's a film that truly captures the magic of falling in love and pursuing your dreams.

Damien Chazelle totally knows how to make musicals feel like pure magic on the big screen as it is devoted to movement and music, not just lyrics. Similarly, with the same devotion and love we put into making our wraps, we hope these La La Land nail designs can make you want to chase your dreams and fall in love all over again!

Les Misérables

Step into a world of passion, revolution, and heart-wrenching stories. This timeless masterpiece will transport you to 19th-century France, where love, sacrifice, and redemption collide in a spectacular musical journey. 🇫🇷❤️

The film is an inspiring tale set in France during the early nineteenth century. It follows the journey of Jean Valjean, a man who has been relentlessly pursued by the unyielding policeman Javert for decades after breaking parole. Despite his troubles, Valjean finds solace in caring for a factory worker's daughter. 

Against the backdrop of the June Rebellion of 1832, the story comes to a satisfying resolution. It is a powerful reminder of the strength of the human spirit, and the importance of compassion and kindness in a world that can sometimes be harsh and unforgiving.

As the years passed, Jean Valjean transformed into Monsieur Madeleine, taking on the roles of both mayor and factory owner in the town. Meanwhile, Fantine, a hardworking employee at his factory, worked tirelessly to support her young daughter, Cosette, who was under the care of a less-than-honorable innkeeper (played by Sasha Baron Cohen) and his partner (played by Helena Bonham Carter).

One unfortunate day, a dispute with her fellow factory workers led to Fantine losing her job. This sudden setback plunged her into a world of hardship, pushing her to sell her hair and resort to unconventional means of making a living. But let this be a reminder that even in the darkest of moments, the human spirit can find the strength and resilience to rise above adversity and conquer life's challenges.

May these designs below keep us inspired and make our day a little brighter despite the challenges we face.
