Cinderelly, Cinderelly!

Cindy's CarriageA pumpkin carriage fit for a princess, for those moments when public transportation just won’t do (please; those mice were miracle workers, but even they couldn’t make a smelly old bus anything other than a smelly old bus.)

These nails are for week one’s theme of Cinderella in March’s Nail Art Ideas Linkup Challenge. I had initially planned on redoing a Cinderella gown design I attempted very early on in my nail art and blogging career, but defaulted to Cindy’s pimped-out pumpkin when I realized I really had nothing more to contribute to my first design, save slightly longer, tidier nails and a steadier hand with a detail brush. Okay, so this carriage looks a bit like a gilded FabergĂ© egg on wheels, but then again, so does the one in the movie. There are worse modes of transportation for a young lady on her way to the big ball (again, see above re: smelly old bus!)Carriage Fingers

Disney Girl Challenge: The Ugly Stepsisters

Disney Girl Challenge: The Ugly Stepsisters

Did you know that the ugly stepsisters from Cinderella (something of a misnomer, as oversized noses and feet do not an ugly person make) have actual names? I didn’t either, but thanks to the power of Google…Anastasia (a name now more popular than ever thanks to 50 Shades of Grey) is the younger of the two sisters, with dark brown hair and a purple dress, and Drizella (yikes) is the older sister, with red hair, a green-and-turquoise dress and a nasty personality on par with her mother’s, Cinderella’s wicked stepmother, Lady Tremaine. Although I’d have attitude, too, if my name was Drizella.
