Cinderella’s Carriage

I have been staring at this bit of nail art by jamylyn_nails for months, and only now finally had the time to try it…and a new blue polish to try it with!

The base is an OPI I got on sale at ULTA called Yoga-ta Get This Blue. I feel like I saw something I wanted to replicate that used this polish a few months ago, but I can’t for the life of me figure out where the design went! Anyway. Blue (that name is too long. Ugh. OPI, I get it, you are being cute but ENOUGH ALREADY) covered nicely in two thin coats. It was actually a one-coater but I smudged my middle finger so I did two coats everywhere! This polish is wonderfully opaque and I can’t wait to try stamping with it! Totally a steal for $4 😀

The design took a little over an hour to complete, which was far less time than I had assumed it would take! The pumpkin coach was a pain, but the curlicues were fun! The original design had Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother on the pinky, but I didn’t have the patience to try…or acrylic paint! So, we just get sparkles.

In other news, the gold on the pumpkin was the wrong gold…I have two gold dense glitters and I grabbed the less dense one! No wonder I had so much trouble. Go figure. I need to label my polishes better.

Hope you enjoyed! This has rekindled my Disney-lust, so if I get a few hours to myself I’ll do another princess mani soon 🙂

    The base is such a pretty color, and at $4 it’s practically a steal.
