This past Sunday, I went to Dapper Day at Disneyland! After my last post, I was determined to wear an outfit inspired by something Disney and to paint my nails to match. After going through my closet, I decided to wear a look inspired by Orange Bird from Disney World!
I already had an orange dress I bought last year that I still hadn't worn. I don't usually wear orange and was unsure about it but using it to DisneyBound as Orange Bird seemed like the perfect excuse to give it a try!
I found a fake flower I had lying around and cut off its leaves so I could add them to my black hat. (Does the hat look familiar? It's the same one I used when I dressed like Anita for Halloween in 2012.)
After grabbing my Orange Bird necklace and some greenish shoes from my closet, I had everything I needed for my outfit! Next up was the fun part- my nails! Here's the completed look!
To do my Orange Bird nails, I picked out an orange nail polish, Sally Hansen "Sun Kissed," and painted all of my nails that color. Then I painted Orange Bird on my ring finger.
I used our Orange Bird sipper we have at home (as seen in the first picture) as a guide and with a dotting tool I painted white ovals for his eyes. After it dried I added the black dots. I used a toothpick to paint his eyebrows and then used another toothpick and some yellow polish to paint his beak.
His beak was hard to do! My first attempt was his beak at a different angle but that didn't work at all so I went back to the sipper and used that as a guide for the beak also. Next I got some green polish and added green to the tops of all my nails.
In the end I liked the result and I think our Orange Bird Vinylmation did too! (btw- can you tell how much we like Orange Bird?)
I had a fun time at Dapper Day and enjoyed wearing this outfit! I even got interviewed by some folks from the Disney Style blog with my friends. They got a close up of my nails- not sure if they'll ever use it but I am flattered that they thought it was worth getting a shot of!
Here are some pictures from around the parks that day! I'm sharing a detailed recap on my other blog, So Disney, so make sure to check it out to read more!

I'll end with one of my favorite photos of that day! My husband was busy in the morning but he joined me at Disneyland later on and surprised me by wearing his Orange Bird shirt. Yay- I love when we match!
So that was my nail art and outfit for this year's Dapper Day! What do you all think?
