The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey…In Nail Art

I searched the web for some of the best Hobbit and Lord of The Rings inspired nail art to get you, and your fingers, ready for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey! Starting with the always impressive work of Kayleigh OC with her Hobbit-hole inspired nails. “I’ve never tried anything on this scale before,” says Kayleigh, “it’s a solid, 3D nail which is supposed to resemble a little Hobbit-hole.¬† It’s about an inch long and an inch high, made using clay, fake grass stuff and acrylic paints/nail varnishes.

Inspired by Gandalf the Grey, Kayleigh OC also created these¬† nails and included Gandalf’s pipe on the little finger and his hat and staff on the middle one. She even added just a touch of sparkle to the tips. “I don’t think Gandalf would mind a bit of glitter,” says Kayleigh.
