DIY | Celebrate National Sisters Day With This Frozen Nail Art
Remember Elsa And Anna’s Sisterly Love…
Follow this amazing tutorial by Cute Polish to paint Elsa and Anna on your nails this National Sisters Day! This cute nail art design will help you celebrate this special day by remembering the unconditional love of these famous Disney characters.
What you’ll need for your Frozen-inspired National Sisters Day nail design:
- Picture Polish “Sorbet”
- Beyond the Nail “Comet”
- Clear Base and Top Coat
- Acrylic paint – brown, white, yellow, red, blue, and pink
- Fine brush
- A plastic wrap
Step 1: Apply Base Coat
Always apply a base coat before starting your design to protect your natural nails!
Step 2: Background – Anna and Elsa
Since Anna’s portrait will be hand-drawn, apply a yellow base color on your thumb. Cute Polish used the Comet shade from Beyond the Nail to achieve this look.
Then, using a makeup sponge, dab on some bluish-green shade (Sorbet from Picture Polish) to the edges of the nail to give it that ombre effect.
Since it’s hard to draw using your less dominant hand, Elsa’s portrait will be made as a decal. To make Elsa’s portrait, print a picture of the animated character that would fit your thumb and place a clear plastic wrap over it. Apply a clear top coat over the design and wait for it to dry.
Step 3: Portrait Outline
Outline Anna and Elsa’s portrait using brown acrylic paint and very fine brush.
Fill in their faces with skin tone-colored acrylic paint. Mix red, white, yellow and brown to get the perfect shade.
Step 4: Draw Facial Details
Start drawing the eyes using the fine brush and brown acrylic paint. Make Anna’s a more rounded compared to her sister’s. Give Elsa a cat’s eye line as well.
Then add a bit of a point for their noses before proceeding to their mouths. Anna’s smile should be wide and welcoming, while Elsa’s should be a bit more reserved. Also, draw in their eyebrows.
Step 5: Color Their Hair
Now it’s time for the hair! After outlining their bangs, fill in the sisters’ hair with their respective colors. Anna’s hair, of course, is brown, while Elsa’s is blond. Achieve the color for Elsa’s hair by mixing white and yellow. Anna’s hair, on the other hand, is a mixture of yellow and brown.
Step 6: Color Their Faces
Your Frozen-themed National Sisters Day nail art is almost done!
You just have to color in your facial details. Use a mixture of blue and white for the siblings’ eyes. Add in a bit of darker blue on the upper circle of the iris to give it depth. Outline them with brown then draw in a small dark dot in the middle of the eyes. Finally, add a small white dot above the dark circle to make them more life-like.
Fill in Elsa’s eyebrows and lips with pink acrylic paint. Fill half of Anna’s mouth with brown and the upper half with white to give her a wide grin. Color her lips with a darker tinge of pink.
Step 7: Attach the Elsa Decal
After adding some flowers to Elsa’s hair and some sunflowers on Anna’s drawing, it’s time to take the decal and place it on your less dominant thumb!
Add a clear top coat on your thumb and attach the decal. Remember to cut a bit of it off if it’s too big for your fingernail. When the top coat dries up a bit, pat down the decal until it sticks to your nails.
Just apply the clear top coat over the design and your Elsa and Anna portraits are done!
Now you can enjoy this amazing Frozen-inspired National Sisters Day nail art with your little sister or your kids! You can make things more exciting by dressing up as Elsa and Anna for the day!
