Oh hi!  So the past few weeks = exhausting.  Hurricane Isaac blew through here like a big brat, I broke my nails, and my liver is all sorts of ticked off… BUT we fared better than a lot of folks, and after tomorrow all of the storm repairs will be done, so phew and hooray and all of that.  Here’s to getting life back to normal!

Anyway, figured today was a good chance to dig back into the request pile, so pulled one that a bunch of people submitted: Disney Princesses!  I picked out some of my favorites for this one, and while I had to stop with Mulan (too much coffee, way shaky hands) I’m mostly cool with the end results (for all their simplicity, these faces are tricky — one wrong move a hair this way or that and it just stops looking right).  I started with a two coat base of OPI Por Favor (it’s a darling sort of pink that made my hands feel super girly), then used acrylic paint to add Mulan on the pinky, Jasmine on the ring, Belle on the middle and (my fave) Tiana on the index (c’mon, like I’m not gonna do the New Orleans princess?!).

Hope everybody’s doing well — promise I’ll get caught up on everything (emails and FB and blah blah blah) this weekend, no foolin’.

    Yea you did them. They look really good. I requested them, sort of wanted more dresses, I need more people to do this idea. My guy tried and failed again the faces are hard for him and no examples. It’ okay I love your site.

    Cool! Yey Mulan, she is my fave :) Altho my next favorite would have to be Ariel (since I saw that one like 100 times as a kid). I saw the New Orleansey one just a few weeks ago :D

    I LOVE the work that you do. In fact, because of your previous Disney posts, my wife is now a HUGE OPI fan, and we are both fans of your site and the work that you do!
