My Little Pony - Rainbow dash

My four year old daughter is kind of into My Little Pony, and when I say kind of, I mean rather obsessed.  The loves the cartoon, has a couple of My Little Pony build-a-bears and a bunch of full outfits with rainbow leggings, t-shirts and jackets all with pony's covering them.  She has been to two My Little Pony birthday parties in the last month and has already requested a pony cake for when she turns five next year. She's also a walking encyclopedia about My Little Pony, I was quickly corrected when I was talking about 'those things on their butts' and advised 'they are called cutie marks'.

So the fact that I've now promised to do her nails every week with a different pony design was only a matter of time.  I've also promised her that I would do matching nails with her.  

Doing free hand nail art is not my forte, but this one actually turned out pretty good, even on my Cinderella hand where I had to paint with my left hand!  I'm thinking my series of My Little Pony nails are going to have a pattern to them.  Middle finger will be the portrait, ring finger will be the cutie mark, and the other fingers will be related and supporting imagery.

I start my series with her favourite pony - Rainbow Dash. She's already told me that Twilight Sparkle is next!

Our matching nails. Her canvas are so small still it's hard to fit in the details!

Holding Rainbow Dash's butt so show the cutie mark with my nails.


  1. This is so adorable! Almost to the extent of heart-breaking. You are the greatest mom!

  2. This is adorable, it turned out very well. I'd love to see a series of these, so I'm looking forward to seeing more like it! :D

  3. Aw this is so cute! You did a great job, too!

  4. I'm not around any young 'ems so I'm not familiar with this trend but I think you did a great job with the artwork! I salute you for being such a good mom!

  5. How cute are you guys nails! I wish that I had a mini me to do matching nails with.
