 Shocked  WOW she is amazing!!!!!  Phenomenal job - I can't believe this is only your second poppet!  I don't know which part I love most . . . the eyes, the dress, the mani/pedi . . . I just love it all.  Definitely hitting this rocks.

I used 4 coats of mod podge and then just used red nail polish.  You can also give them a more natural look, and take some white acrylic paint and give the nails white tips, and put another coat of mod podge over that.

Sure!!!  I made your basic wig with a wig cap.  Then I parted the hair down the middle, and tied the hair together at the ends...really tight.  Then for her style, I then took the tied end and and started rolling in towards the part.  Kind of like a cinnamon roll.  Take a long piece of yarn with a big needle and put that through the middle part of the roll.  Tie the 2 ends together in a knot, and using the needle, pull one end under and through the wig cap, do the same with the other side, then tie another knot.  Weave ends into the wig cap.  Repeat for the other side.  Hope that makes sense...maybe I can write up a tute with pics if it doesn't  Grin
