Little Mermaid

Little Mermaid

The last polish in the Disney Fairytale Nail Polish set is Ariel.  I decided to paint the more cutesy POP version of Ariel for the feature nail.  For the blue nails, I used several different glitter polishes that looked like a part of Ariel's world under the sea (see what I did there?).

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Disney Fairytale - Ariel
  • Sinful Colors - Nail Junkie
  • Sinful Colors - Bombshell
  • Embellish - Mermaid FLASH
  • Essence - Sweet as Candy
  • Wet n Wild - Red Red
  • Wet n Wild - Black Crème
  • White and brown polishes for eyebrows and highlights
Other Supplies:
  • Nail art brush
  • Dotting tool
  • Base and top coats

The POP version of Ariel is fairly simple to paint.  Here's how to create the look:
  1. Paint the base colors.  All nails should be in Ariel except the middle, which should be pink.
  2. For all blue nails, paint the three glitter polishes from the middle of the nail to the tips.  More glitter should be concentrated on the tips so it has sort of a gradient.
  3. Paint Ariel's face on the middle finger.
    • From about mid nail to the base should be red for Ariel's hair.  Paint her hairline in a small "S" curve.
    • Use a large dotting tool with black polish for her eyes, and add little black wings on the outer corners with a nail brush.
    • Use a nail brush and brown polish to paint eyebrows.
    • Use a smaller dotting tool with white polish to create highlights in her eyes.
