A Whole New World - An Aladdin Nail Art Tribute

As a proud 90's kid, I thank my lucky stars for being around for the Golden Age of Disney Animation. Each movie that dropped was a hit, all the songs were Broadway level amazing, and each film was an immersive experience.


 You didn't just watch a Disney film, you lived it. They made you believe in magic and that anything was possible. I love the whole Disney catalogue but as far as Disney movies from the 90's, Aladdin was the best one. Fight me.

Aladdin is the best Disney Renaissance film. Don't argue with me.
Released in 1992, the animated film, Aladdin was based on an anthology of Middle Eastern folk lore entitled "The Book of One Thousand and One Nights".

The story follows the adventures of Aladdin, the titular character who has nothing but his street smarts and his monkey companion, Abu to help him navigate life on the streets of Agrabah. By chance, he meets the beautiful Princess Jasmine who was in disguise in the marketplace that he and Abu often frequent.

 Aladdin was shocked to discover that he girl he met was royalty.
Being overcome with his feelings for Jasmine, Aladdin laments that he would not be able to win Jasmine over without wealth and a royal title.

An opportunity presents itself when Aladdin is recruited by the royal Vizer, Jafar to go on a quest to the Cave of Wonders where he must retrieve a magic lamp that would grant the recipient three wishes.
With Robin Williams in his iconic role as the Genie, this film had the perfect amount of humor and whimsy to it.

  What I loved most about the film  was that Princess Jasmine was the first Princess of color that I've ever seen and she was strong! She wasn't a damsel in distress, she was a strong-willed individual who didn't want to be stifled by outdated traditions. I loved that she had a voice.
It does my heart proud to know that the live action reboot will be coming to theaters soon so that the new generation can be enchanted by the story too.


Please enjoy the nail art that I've created to celebrate a big piece of my childhood. I choose to represent Jasmine, Aladdin, Raja, the Magic Carpet, and Genie. There is a video as well. This nail video is longer than usual because of all the detail that went into each character.

Tell me in the comments what your favorite Disney movie is!
