Today’s Disney theme is Sleeping Beauty (1959). As far as I’m concerned, Snow White (the second in this princess series) and Sleeping Beauty are pretty much the same damn film, just released 22 years apart. The things that annoy me are just the same: passively hanging around cleaning for a flock of short people, being frightened in woods as they sing and grope wild woodland creatures, dreaming of princes, being beautiful and naive and woken up by sleep-creepers.
|Or maybe just the one sleep-creeper with a dye job?|
There are even videos dedicated to all the similarities:
For some reason the Disney princess franchise has Sleeping Beauty in a pink dress instead of the blue in the movie, probably because to make her less similar to Cinderella (another princess that Sleeping Beauty/Aurora is lazily apeing). Here’s my mani this week:
It’s my first attempt at freehand roses, and I think I did quite well! The main colours used are Nicole by OPI City Pretty Rose, Orly Flare, Essence Make It Golden and Hello Darling Butter Wouldn’t Melt. I have to say, even though I’m not really enjoying rewatching all these movies, I like how the themes make me explore designs I wouldn’t usually wear!
