The Little Mermaid Nails

My all time favorite Disney movie is The Little Mermaid. Younger when I would tell people my name they would sometimes mistakenly call me Ariel, my name is pronounced “Aire”, so my love for the movie grew even more due to this childhood memory. Here is my take on my favorite childhood movie. I also entered my nails into the Disney contest here.

Detail view of Ariel:

I first painted my nails with LA Colors White, and let completely dry. Next I used a gel writing pen and drew Ariel’s profile. Used a Nail Dotting Tool to fill in the skin and hair.Went over the detail lines with LA Art Deco in Black. With a nail paint brush painted the Eyes, Nose, Lips and added highlights.
