Can You Paint with all the Colors of the Wind?- Disney’s Pocahontas Nail Art Tribute


Happy Friday, Friends!

I hope you all had a very productive week. I would like to close out this week with a Nail Art Tribute to Disney’s Pocahontas. Pocahontas is an animated film of a fictionalized retelling of the meeting between English Colonist, John Smith and Native American Princess, Pocahontas.
                                                   
 Disney was well into it’s animation renaissance when the film was released in June 23, 1995. Following in the footsteps of her headstrong Princess predecessors (such as Belle and Princess Jasmine) Pocahontas spoke her mind, she was fearless, and lived a full life independent of her love interest.
Pocahontas had musical gems such as "Just Around the River Bend" and the epic ballad, "Colors of the Wind". I can say that I spent all summer standing on top of boulders imagining my box braids blowing majestically in the wind.
                                              
That Summer every pool floatie was my "canoe" and I pretended to also have shamanic powers I communed with nature/ played outside.  I paid tribute to Pocahontas' iconic turquoise necklace, her red tribal arm band, and the cluster of leaves that swirls around her during key moments in her life.

                                               
Let me know what other Disney tributes that you would like to see in the comments below. Please enjoy the video of the process!
