Easy DIY Mickey Mouse French Manicure Instructions for a Cheapskate Princess

Disney French Manicure

If you ever saved $30 to $60 by doing your own manicure, so you could spend that money on vacation, you just might be a Cheapskate Princess! Manicures began thousands of  years ago. With French manicures, the tips of the nails are painted white, while the rest of the nails are polished in a pink or a suitable nude shade. French manicures may have originated in 18th-century Paris and were popular fashion statements in the 1920s and 1930s. They remain very popular even today. [Read more…]

Do It Yourself Minnie Mouse Manicure Instructions for a Cheapskate Disney Princess

Free manicure Instructions from Disney World

How many of you have scheduled a spa appointment during your Disney vacation? This is a huge dream of mine (once my kids are grown and out of the house, in those years before grandkids beg “Glam Ma” to take them to the Magic Kingdom) to spend the day at a Disney Spa. Ah, the pampering, the relaxation, the Disney MAGIC of a different type than theme parks and roller coasters. I just don’t see it happening anytime soon, so I am left to do my own Disney nails in my living room.

While all Disney princesses sure love their manicures, it’s the Cheapskate Princess that doesn’t want to spend a fortune getting one. Lucky for us, Senses Spa, now with two locations on the WDW property, created  instructions on how to do your own Minnie Mouse manicure right in your own home.
