By A Lacquered Affair · May 16, 2012 · 0 Comments ·

"My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is an animated television series that premiered on October 10, 2010, on the United States cable network The Hub.Hasbro Studios and DHX Media's animation studio in Vancouver (formerly known as Studio B Productions) produce the series, which is based on Hasbro, Inc's My Little Pony line of toys and animated works. ...
The show follows a studious unicorn pony named Twilight Sparkle as her mentor Princess Celestia guides her to learn about friendship in the town of Ponyville. Twilight becomes close friends with five other ponies: Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie. Each represents a different face of friendship, and discovers herself to be a key part of the "Elements of Harmony". The ponies share adventures and help out other residents of Ponyville, while working out the troublesome moments in their own friendships." - Wikipedia

Hey lacquerheads!

Here's another show-inspired nail art - My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Most of you might like this post. Less words, more visuals. I grew up watching the original animated series on TV back in the 80's, and had a few of the toys and merchandise. Being a typical little girly girl, the sweet, cute, positive and magical world of MLP was instantly a hit with me.

Fast forward (too) many years later, a nail polish collection by Rainbow Honey (inspired by the latest series), an indie polish/ cosmetics brand, was an instant attraction for me. That's putting it mildly actually; I'm head over heels for this new (yet to be released) collection! Check it out here!

So word is, the winners of this Blogger Nail Art Contest held by Rainbow Honey will receive polishes from this collection, ahead of the release! And I want them SOOOO badly! I hope you'll like my "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" inspired nail art enough to help me garner votes on their Facebook page or blog on 16th May, 2012 (details at the end of the post).

I'm quite nervous yet excited about this first attempt at a nail art contest, so here we go!

MLP Rarity Inspired Nail ArtI should have used a pale, dove grey, or even white. But it was originally intended for another idea, but I was out of time to redo the entire nail.

And yes, Twilight Sparkle is missing from this batch. Wish I had a sixth finger (then again, not). Plus, she's the main protagonist of the show. Here's a promise: if I win this contest, I'll do a full mani/ nail art inspired by Twilight Sparkle! Pinkie promise ;)
