The Digit-al Dozen Does Fairytales: Snow White's Poison Apple

I know I'm a couple days late for the last day of The Digit-al Dozen, but I've got one last fairytale themed nail art for you guys today! Today's look is another abstract idea based off the famous Brothers Grimm story, Snow White. (Even if you haven't heard the original tale, you've no doubt seen the Disney princess or the movie adaptations!) Anyway, this manicure is inspired by the poison apple that causes Snow White to fall into a lifeless state, before her prince rescues her with a kiss.

I started off with a base of Cuccio Verona Lace, and then drew on my apples with Essie Double Breasted Jacket (and Essie Vices Versa on my detail nail for the "poisoned" apple.) Then, I outlined them with Cuccio 2am in Hollywood, and drew little stems with Essie Fierce, No Fear. I also made a little highlight in the apples with Verona Lace. I topped everything off with a semi-matte top coat from Born Pretty Store. (Don't forget, you can use the code RFL91 for 10% off your order and free shipping!)

I chose this look because even if you aren't a fan of the fairytale (like myself!), this is still a super cute apple manicure to rock! Although it's probably more appropriate to wear in autumn.

I also think the color scheme of this manicure is a refreshing change of pace from my last few Digit-al Dozen manicures, which tended to be blue themed. (Plus, my nails are finally back to an acceptable length! Yay!) And it's definitely nice to have finished my first DD challenge - I can't wait for the next one!
