OLAF! Frozen Nail Art

Hey everyone!

So since the first time I watched Frozen, I fell in love with a certain little snowman who loves summer. Now, see, I don't have kids so I haven't had to be submitted to it millions of times and I STILL love it so I decided to paint a little Olaf on my nails while listening to the Frozen soundtrack.


This was so much fun to paint, but my hand was shaking in some parts SO bad. I don't know how some of the nail art ladies do this detail work so much. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out though. 

And since it's currently summer here in Australia, I added his flowers since Olaf loves summer so much. 


Base is China Glaze 'Bahamian Escape' & everything else was done with acrylic paint and my Edinburgh Realism M0 brush from @faburnails :) topped with Sally Hansen 'Big Matte Top Coat'.


I wasn't happy with the flowers and thought I could make them cuter so I added a texture gradient! And I think they compliment Olaf so well.


I used OPI 'Tiffany Case' and 'Solitaire' for the gradient and I really love how it turned out. Taking these off is going to be hard a) because they're textured & removing texture polish is always time consuming and b) because I like the colours so much & Olaf is one of the favorite things I've ever painted. 

Also my first ever texture gradient. So much easier than expected! The technique is the same as a normal gradient with a makeup sponge, but imperfections are hidden by the texture so it was a lot easier for me.

I used my home made liquid tape for clean up. 

Do you love Frozen? Are you as obsessed with Olaf too? Do you think I did these justice?
