Let's Take A Moment To Obsess About Frozen...

I know in some of my previous posts I've been harping on about how ready for summer I am but that doesn't stop me from being obsessed with Disney's wintery film Frozen. I'm not going to lie when I fist saw it advertised I wasn't impressed. I even remember saying how I thought it was gunna be another rubbishy film, with a tired script we've all seen before that was lying at the back of some cupboard somewhere that they changed slightly to have a wintery theme so they could knock it out quickly in time for Christmas.

I started getting annoyed and ranting about how cinema has become too monetised and no one thinks about the art of movies anymore. This is why great stand alone films become increasingly degraded by a series of sub-standard sequels which continue to be churned out until no body is interested in even the original anymore. However how jaded and wrong was I...

I love it. That's the first thing I thought when I saw the film (thanks to some friends of mine who insisted it was amazing). One question I do have though, having been on a cinema binge over the holidays in order to try and watch as many of the Oscar nominated films as possible (and therefore seeing the Frozen trailer 200 million times); why didn't I know it was a musical? I swear in not one advert did they show a clip of someone singing? Maybe they did and I was too busy slagging it off to notice?

Musicals are my weakness and I think everyone living in my building has heard me singing 'Let It Go' (Frozen's main song) at the top of my voice in the shower in the morning. I just loved the film too because it seemed to hark back to the Disney of my childhood with films like The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. Also I think the snowman, Olaf, is so sweet and cute!

Blue Silver Nail Art Frozen

If any of you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the drawing of Elsa that I did a couple of weeks ago (if not you can see my Instagram here). I wouldn't say Elsa is my favourite character in the film but I would say she has the best outfit! It's blue and silver and sparkly which are like all of my favourite things! So, taking my Frozen obsession to the next level I decided to do some Elsa inspired nail art...

Miss Den Vernis Express Color Nail Polish Blue Star

I used about 3 coats of my Miss Den nail varnish in Blue Star as the base because I thought it was the colour that matched Elsa's dress the most.

Essie Silver Glitter Nail Polish Hors 'DOeuvres

Then I used my Essie nail varnish in Hors D'Oeuvres (with not much on the brush because it is quite a thick glitter) and randomly dragged the brush down my nail to create icicle effects with the glitter. You could use a blue glitter if you wanted (which I nearly did) to make it more like Elsa's dress. Or, of course, you could use different colours entirely...if you aren't as obsessed with Frozen as me....


  1. I LOVE Frozen! Best animated movie in years! great nail design, love the color combo


    1. Thankyou :-) And yeah such an awesome movie! There hasn't been one like it for a long time

  2. I've been obsessing over frozen too, GREAT movie :D. And I love the nails, I think I have similar nail polishes myself so I can recreate the look.


    1. Hehe I'm glad I'm not the only one! And you'll have to let me know if you try it out :-)

  3. Aw, what a lovely post! I really love your Frozen nails, they look so beautiful - a great subtle nod to the film. I can't wait to pick the DVD up this week, I am going to take it into my school for the film club I run and everything, and am definitely more excited than the children! It's just got all of the charm of the original Princess/classic Disney films, but is a bit more modern. Plus I love the songs! xx


    1. Thankyou! :-) I'm sure they'll love watching it I know I would! :-)
