She-Ra Princess of Power

Ok, I laughed hard when I showed these nails off at work, because my coworkers Danny and Dano totally recognized this character right away, and Danny knew that She-Ra was He-Man's twin separated at birth. LOL. These cartoons do stick in your head and heart, don't they??

I decided that I have been neglecting my sparkly glitter polishes, and needed to do a fun sparkle manicure. She-Ra is both powerful and girly, so she fit well into this mani.

I painted She-Ra using acrylic paints over the base of OPI Elephantastic Pink. I had to change the shape of her face a bit, but that is the nice thing about acrylic paint. You can mess up and fix things fairly easily. 

Next I outlined her crown, face, and flowing hair.

Here is She-Ra, with an adjusted jaw line and her facial features. I thought about adding some sparkle to her crown, but I started this mani rather late and night and I needed to go to bed.

Polishes used in this manicure: OPI Extrava-va-ganza! and OPI Elephantastic Pink. I also used Nail Envy and Seche Vite. 

If you really need a She-Ra fix (and who doesn't??) check out this video of the opening credits to the show on YouTube.

    1. Bwaahahahaha! Right on, aimeeus. I love the opening credits, so cheesy!

  4. This is crazy. A few weeks ago I started guest blogging for Leslie and this week I'm posting my She-Ra nails! I painted them like a week and a half ago but they'll be posted Thursday... Same wave length this week! These look amazing!

    1. Shut the front door! Totally hilarious! I was just thinking that I need to do something with sparkle since I own a gazillion glitter polishes but rarely use them in manicures. I thought She-Ra would totally rock a sparkle mani. Yup, great minds think alike. Can't wait to see yours!!

  5. By the way, she's on Netflix now. :-)
