You've Got a Friend in Me -Toy Story Nail Art Tribute

                                                    
The happiest Friday to you, friends!

I hope that everyone is having a glorious day.  Let us go back in time to 1995. On November  22, 1995, Toy Story was released by Pixar to theaters. Toy Story was one of the first American Computer-Animated feature-length films and the first film for Pixar.

Toy Story is about a group of toys owned by a little boy named Andy. The toys come to life when humans are no in the room. The toys are lead by Woody, the cowboy doll, who is Andy's favorite toy. Woody's main objective is to get his fellow toys prepared for the impending move that Andy's family will make to a new house.
                                 
The pecking order is disturbed by the arrival of a new toy, an astronaut action figure named Buzz Lightyear that Andy received as a birthday present.

Buzz becomes popular amongst his peers in Andy's room and it is not long before he becomes Andy's favorite toy. Woody is wounded by this turn of events but finds a bit of humor in that Buzz has not come to the realization that he is a toy and not "Thee" Buzz Lightyear.

The two remain at odds until they wind up in the clutches of Sid, the sadistic boy that lives next door. Buzz & Wood team up to escape their doom and reunite with their friends in time to move to the new house.

Toy Story featured the iconic voices of Tom Hanks as Woody and Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear who have built up a hilarious dynamic throughout the entire franchise. We were also treated to the musical stylings of Randy Newman for the film's soundtrack.

This movie was my brother's favorite movie growing up, I remember him sneaking up on his toys to see if he could catch them coming to life.

I thought a manicure paying tribute to this beloved franchise is just the right amount of whimsy to bring to this ending of the week as well as a way to prepare for the upcoming installment to the series.

I chose to represent Woody, Buzz, a Piza Planet reason (for obvious reasons), the wallpaper in Andy's room, and the bottom of Woody's boot that was affectionately branded by Andy.

I've got a video for you all below of the process behind the nails. Let me know if there are any Disney or Pixar favorites that you would like to see represented next?

To infinity & beyond!
