With a Twinsie Tuesday prompt of "cutesy and girly," I knew exactly what I wanted--nay, needed--to do. Having recently, wholeheartedly embraced the wonder that is My Little Pony (like you do when you're a grown-up), my careful and deliberate consideration of the theme roughly went, "Yii! Ponies! Fluttershy is girly and she's so cute, and OMG, Fluttershy nail art!"
Yes, my inner child has staged a coup and is now in charge of the brain. I regret nothing. Because ponies!
Of course a manicure this girly almost has to have pink--at least for me--and I went with Nfu Oh 150 (it's such a classic, quintessential soft, light pink). The yellow is Jessica Banana Peel, which I'm definitely going to need to wear again because it looks like creamy, sweet banana pudding. For a pale yellow polish, it gave me surprisingly few fits! And before I go any further it occurs to me that for those of you who aren't six like me and therefore don't know who Fluttershy is, a picture might help...
Cute? Girly? Check.
My middle nail is Fluttershy's swooping mane, done with polishes, then outlined with acrylic paint. Likewise, her butterfly cutie mark (yes, that's what it's called. a cutie mark. shut up.) is pink polish dotted over the yellow with acrylic paint details. The other fingers got a gradient of the two main polishes with Spoiled Jewel Heist glitter. Pink and green with tiny highlights of blue and a hint of iridescence, Jewel Heist really needs to be dabbed to get decent coverage, but the colours are so adorable.
Hopefully these fit the "cutesy and girly" bill! On a tangentially related note...new site layout! I just felt like it was time for a little less of a springtime look...and then a day after I take down my pink butterfly layout, I go and do pink butterfly nails. Womp, womp. But still, I like the new digs. For now. No telling when I'll get that itch, though--sometimes it hits me in the middle of the night, and suddenly, Must Change Layout! NOW! And then I spend the next 24 hours obsessing over pixels instead of watching My Little Pony.
Really looking forward to seeing my fellow Twinsies' nails all cutesy and girly this week!
