Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)


mrsdoubtfire_bornunicornWhen Daniel Hillard (Robin Williams) and his wife split up, he desperately tries to find a place in the lives of his three children. The trick he opts for is pretending to be a Scottish nanny, Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire. Before turning into Mrs. Doubtfire, he tries to impersonate different types of babysitters: his brother Frank and his partner Jack (both are make-up artists) help him find the right type. One of the babysitters he impersonates has a raven black wig, a strong Latin accent and stiletto nails.

Daniel is obviously referring to the famous fictional nail polish shade mentioned in The Women (1939) by George Cukor, but the nail polish used by Frank is by Clarins.
