Frozen's Olaf insp' Nails

WOW. I've been meaning to do this for a while...and I've FINALLY ACCOMPLISHED IT. IT'S DONE. YAY!!!! I've been obsessing over Frozen for the past few weeks, if you haven't yet, I suggest that you do it ASAP because it is SUCH a great movie, (alright, I confess... I've seen the movie twice, and I've been listening to the soundtracks non-stop), and my nails have finally caught on! For those of you who don't know, Olaf is a cute snowman who is brought to life by Queen Elsa's magic, and he is the most goofy and lovable snowman ever! One thing that really inspired me to do this manicure was Olaf's  song 'In Summer', where he pines to experience summer (not knowing what happens to snow under the sun); and since North America seems to be frozen over this winter, I cannot wait for summer to come again!

Without further ado (and before I spoil more of the movie), here are my tips for creating your very own Olaf inspired nails:

Simply Sweet Valentine's Day Nails

Happy (almost) Valentine's Day to you all! These nails are super cute and super sweet (though a bit more time consuming to do), and I think that they're just perfect for Valentine's day. Well, I did get a bit indecisive this year so I decided upon this mix-n-match design from the combination of  all my ideas. These are my designs (starting from my index finger); hearts & swirls, a heart-shaped Valentine that says 'BE MINE', two love birds saying 'I love you', XOXO's, and my thumb (not pictured) is another variation of the love birds, but instead of saying 'I love you', it has a giant heart.

Now here are some Tips&Tricks on how to recreate these nails:

Chinese New Year Nails

Voila! This post is just a tad late (and I also apologize for not updating in so long)...But it's been a pretty hectic month (and year) thus far. Excuses aside, I finally had some time to create these simple, yet festive nails. I actually really like this design because they're so simple to do, bold, fabulous, and not to mention- they aren't very time consuming (which is awesome because time isn't something that I have right now). Oh yes, here's a fun fact- the horse on my thumbnail is actually the Chinese Character for horse, "馬"! are some tips for creating your very own Lunar New Year Nails nails:
