Sunset Over Disney (31DC2014)

Sunset Over DisneyToday’s theme in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge is all about flags. I don’t actually know if Disney has an official flag (surely Lake Buena Vista, the Disney-created municipal entity in central Florida, has a flag, but I’d like to keep it a little closer to the parks than that. Although – trivia alert! – Lake Buena Vista was incorporated pretty much solely to facilitate the creation of Disney World, and so if anything is related to the theme parks themselves, it would be Lake Buena Vista’s flag. The things you learn in a day, right?!)

But wanting to keep it a little less bureaucratic than that, I chose instead to draw inspiration from a favourite Disney scene, namely the gorgeous sight of the sun slipping below the horizon as the silhouette of Cinderella’s Castle stands in the foreground, its rooftop flags fluttering gently in the breeze. Heavens, that was overly poetic. Can you tell that someone – as in me-one – could really use a Disney holiday?

A small note: My top coat has begun bubbling like a cauldron. Time to replace the sticky old fella (ooh, how dirty!)
