Twinsie Tuesday: Disney Inspired

OHAI! I'm totally late because it's Wednesday now! Big, ginormous apologies to my fellow Twinsies--I'm actually posting this one from the road...well, "on" the road...I'm mid-travels right now. I'm not in the street. I'm highly caffeinated too! Shocker. Deep breath, starting again, and...

This week's TT theme is Disney-inspired manicures, and I've been so excited about it! I've had all these visions of Princesses running through my head for weeks, just trying to narrow them down...and then I remembered a picture I've had on my camera for ages.

I took this about a year ago at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hollywood Hotel buffet, specifically because I thought it would make some cute nail art. At the time I was hoping I'd stick with nail art long enough to feel like I could do something similar on my nails, and WOW, does time fly. So while they aren't princess-y in the least and not at all what I'd originally had in mind when I started thinking about this TT theme, these nails were very directly Disney-inspired.

OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys makes for a great chocolate brown base (ooh, just remembered I used it as chocolate before, for my M&M nails!), and the flowers are acrylic paints. I was pretty psyched that I'd managed to mix up a pink this close--then I got even more psyched when I realized I'd inherited a practically perfect pink glitter match from my friend Ellen's stash purge, so the centers of the white flowers are dotted with butter LONDON Rosie Lee.

Overall they're a bit more "crowded" than the original Disney dessert, but I was pretty happy with how they turned out! And I'm sure my fellow Twinsies have a lot more actual "Disney" happening on their Disney-inspired nails, so please swing by and check 'em out. (^_^)
