Mickey Mouse Nails

Today, I would like to share with you a tutorial on some Disney nail art. They are easily done, but a little time consuming. So please make sure that you have a few hours to spare. If you would like to achieve these fun nails like in the picture below, please read on.

You will need four colors of polish (red, black, white and a yellow/gold) and a top coat, nail polish remover, tape, a small paint brush, and a nail file. I also recommend using a base coat, however; it is not required.

The Pixar Story

Last night I was having a hard time sleeping, so I found myself perusing Netflix. I have never been so happy to be an insomniac. I found a delightful little documentary about Disney’s partners in crime: P.I.X.A.R.  It follows the talented, John Lasseter, from his college days through the success that his company achieves.

I will be the first to admit that the Pixar films, Toy Story aside, have never been at the top of my list. Finding Nemo was the last of their films that I really enjoyed. (I haven’t even seen Cars 2 yet.)  Please don’t start filling my comment box with hate. Being the silly girl that I am, I just prefer the fairy tales. The Pixar films always seemed like “boy” movies to me.  However; that doesn’t mean that I can’t appreciate them for the works of art that they are.  The breakthroughs that these films achieve are mind blowing! “The Pixar Story” helped me to understand the hard work and devotion that went into making this company a reality.

I figure for my first post I will just tell you all a little bit about myself since we will hopefully be hearing a lot from each other.  My name is Liz. I am (almost) 27 going on 15. I don't feel the need to grow up just yet. I currently live in Minneapolis, Minnesota but I was born and raised in North West Indiana (about 30 minutes south of Chicago.) My place of employment is at the Mall of America where I run rides at Nickelodeon Universe. I took the job to give myself theme park experience. I am a major lover of the Arts, especially theatre. Musicals are kinda my life. I am the oldest of eight (combined families) so I have a natural mother hen instinct. My family is very important to me even though they are 8 hours away. I love the color pink, costumes, glitter, and vodka. I am a happy person who loves to have fun! I am single and almost ok with it. I do alright on my own. I'm determined not to settle for anything less than my Prince Charming. And not to quote a villian, but as Mother Gothel says, "All good things to those who wait.." 

Now that we got all the boring stuff out of the way, let's talk good stuff! I obviously have a deep love for Disney and all it compasses or I wouldn't be making this blog. In a world full of hate and sadness Disney gives people young and old something to believe in. Faith, Trust an Pixie Dust all the way!! My grandma took me to World Disney World when I was about 4 and I have been hooked ever since. I grew up watching all of the Classics on VHS and who can forget the Disney Sing Alongs. Disney made my childhood magical and it has grown with me for almost 3 decades.
