The Little Prince

I read this book for the first time maybe ten years ago, one afternoon at the local library. Today, it's still one of the most beautiful, honest, and thought-provoking books that I've had the pleasure of reading.
When I was little, I remember my cousin having this Little Prince calendar with illustrations and accompanying quotes from the book. My favourite one was of the "hat", which was actually clearly a boa constrictor eating an elephant.
These took an indecent amount of time (I think I set a new record), but I am really, really thrilled with them. Particularly proud of my left hand for its star-drawing capabilities.
It was wonderful to revisit this book. Hope you're having a great weekend!

  4. I love this book! I read this in French, and the meanings are really deep and thoughtful for a children's book. This mani is so amazing <3

    1. I really wish my French was good enough for me to read this story in its original language! It's really great how it is a children's book that everyone can enjoy. Thank you! <3

  6. I love these SO SO SO SO SO much. I can't even begin to tell you. I'm just now getting into nail art and had been thinking about wanting to do Little Prince nails when I get better, and I'm so happy I found someone to be inspired by. :)
