The Little Prince Nail Polish Painting

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."~The Little Prince. 

Whoever is not enchanted with the tale of the Little Prince? Once you read the book, his melancholy yet magnificent image will just stay with you like a silent trail in the sand. This Little Prince project utilizes nail colors as the main medium. Shimmery and rich, these bottled dazzlers will the lend the right mix of cuteness and brilliance as but the fitting rendition of our little man.

Materials Needed:


  • transparency/acetate sheet
  • design printout 
  • nail colors / acrylic paint
  • black-inked pen



Procedure
Trace the outlines of the design at the back of the printout to come up with the reverse image then lay the acetate over it. Transfer the design onto the transparency sheet by tracing it using a black-inked pen. Wait for the ink to completely dry out before applying color.


Let the previously applied color dry first before applying another one along side it. Other design elements can be added like stars and such, and then you can get creative with the background.
