{Princess Inspired Nails}

Hey, y'all!  I have a fun post for you today.  Every Monday, Maria-Isabel and Andrea have a fun link party called Makeup Monday.
Makeup Monday
This week, readers were challenged to come up with princess inspired beauty posts.  I thought it would be really fun to participate, so I came up with a Sleeping Beauty inspired manicure.
I used some inexpensive nail polishes, along with rhinestone nail stickers, to get my Sleeping Beauty look.
I painted all my nails--excluding my ring fingers--with the Wet n Wild Lavender Creme polish.  (I'm not really sure why it's called lavender creme...)  I painted my ring fingernails with the Wet n Wild Gold Album first and then the China Glaze Blonde Bombshell.  I stuck small rhinestones on my pink nails and painted over all my nails with a clear coat.
I love the gold paired with the pink.  It reminds me of Sleeping Beauty's pink dress paired with her gold crown.  And, of course, I had to wear a huge cocktail ring with this manicure for one of the pictures since I was being all princess-like.
     I tried several different ways to paint my princess inspired nails, but I just don't have any luck using tape strips or painting intricate designs freehanded.  Do you do your own nail art?  What are your secrets for creating fun patterns?
