All this month, the NCC challenge is Music/TV/Movies. Which I thought would be easy, until I had to think of what to do. I knew I couldn't top my spectacular Spinal Tap mani that totally went to 11.
Sometimes, inspiration has a roundabout way of coming to me. I started with I Love Nail Polish Charmingly Purple, a gorgeous light purple holo that evoked thoughts of Prince Charming.
Every prince needs a crown, right? So I used these crown water decals that were sent to me from Born Pretty Store. I can't believe how easy they are to use - cut, soak for 15 seconds in water, slide off the paper, and put on the nail. If the nail is wet, you can even slide them around until you like where they are, and then they'll dry and stay put.
The low-hanging fruit would be to go with Prince, right? He loves purple, the polish is Charming-ly, like Prince Charming.. but while I was doing this, I kept hearing a song in my head, and it wasn't Prince's.
Nope, it was Lorde's Royals.
While she's not one of my favorite singers, I have to applaud her recent calling out of this photoshopped image of herself. She tweeted it along with a regular picture of herself, reminding people that it's okay to have flaws. Yay for positive body image!
