Lazy 15: Day 11- Fireworks/Bonfire

My poor blog... Somehow, I had convinced myself that over Thanksgiving break, I was going to do lots of posting and stay on track with this challenge. Rightttt. I don't think so. For now, I still need to make up Friday's post, but I do have Monday's for you to look at:

 Our daily theme was fireworks, and I enjoyed thinking up a design for it! I hoped to have four of my fingers look like fireworks, and I think the attempt wasn't too bad. The thumb was definitely the best though... And on my ring finger, I used the same polishes from the "fireworks" as a base for my new Pure Ice Crackle (black) polish.

This was really neat, as it is my first crackle polish! I think the effect is so cool, and when I had first tried crackle I couldn't believe it actually worked! :)
And here's a view of my favorite firework nail. It reminds me a little bit of the 4th of July... maybe it's the red, yellow (similar to white? :), and blue polish.

What do you think? Do you like crackle polish? How about fireworks?

Here's a little snowman, since it's starting to get so cold here in Maryland. There were even snow flurries the other day!!!! :)

Lazy 15: Day 9- Disney

For starters, Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who celebrate it!! I'm having a wonderful time with family now...

Anyway, this was definitely THE most polish heavy manicure I have ever done!!! I used over 10 different polishes; it was crazy!!

The daily theme was Disney, and I chose to do the ten Disney princesses. I'm not too comfortable painting faces, so I decided to do dresses and other major princess icons. :)

 For this manicure, I did both hands; 10 fingers for 10 princesses. :)

On this hand, from pinky to first finger, we have:

  • Jasmine: this is her hair, headband, and a small part of her forehead
  • Rapunzel: her long hair :)
  • Mulan: this is based off of one of her outfits that was really pretty
  • Tiana: not a great attempt :(; it was supposed to look like her leafy dress, and I added black to symbolize that she was the first African-American princess

 Now on to my right hand! First finger to pinky:

  • Ariel: the top of her tail, some hair, and her shells
  • Snow White: part of her dress, including a sleeve
  • Aurora: her pink dress on a yellow background
  • Pocahontas: this is supposed to look like her dress, belt, and necklace

Left to right:

  • Belle: her dress
  • Cinderella: the pumpkin carriage and the glass slipper
I hope you like them!! I know I was a big fan of the princesses when I was little. :) My favorite was always Sleeping Beauty (Aurora), but oddly enough, I didn't own that movie for the longest time... Which was your favorite? Did you grow up watching the Disney princess movies?

I also wanted to share with you guys a wonderful blog that I love, Pink & Polished. Her nail art is gorgeous, and I love her blog!
