Designing a nail inspired look for Anna Sui - Dolly Girl

This makeup look is inspired by the Anna Sui Dolly Girl glittery nail varnish range. This range includes 25 different colours. The 

Dolly Girl range was originally a fragrance range which launched in 2003.  Below are some images of products that have been a part of the Dolly Girl range and also advertisement images for the range.

This mood board below is inspiration found on Pinterest. For this look I want to use glitter on the face - around the eyes, glitter nail varnish to match the newest Dolly Girl product. the main colours I would use for this design would be purple (this is Anna Sui's favorite colour) and pink to create a more doll like feel to the design. 

For this design I could use glitter through the hair with two high top knots/buns on either sides of the head. The bottom right hand image of this mood board is a more doll like makeup look, I think that it could be interesting to use this image as inspiration for my design because I can use elements of this to relate to the Dolly Girl theme, however I don't want the final image to look too doll like.I want the over all look to have a fun feel to it, the hair will give this feeling. I also purchased some Stargazer rose paper lashes to use for this makeup look.
