Funky Fingers – Elsa

Funky Fingers - Elsa BottleGood morning, good morning! It’s pretty likely that as you’re reading this, I’m still in my pajamas, drinking coffee, and enjoying my second snow day in a row. Lovelovelove. To celebrate, I decided a snowy mani was in order and I’d just bought the perfect polish… for Alli. See, I picked up Elsa at Five Below a few weekends ago because it looked like the perfect UNC glitter. I didn’t notice the little snowflake glitter, but more on that below. I figured she wouldn’t mind too much (since she didn’t know about it) if I went ahead and tried it out – Surprise, Alli!

Elsa is from the Frostbitten Collection – a trio of Frozen themed polishes that also includes Anna and Olaf. Honestly, if I’d picked up Anna or Olaf I wouldn’t have made the Frozen collection connection – I haven’t seen Frozen, I know everyone is/was obsessed – I just…. haven’t seen it. But I haven’t been living under a rock for the past few years so, Elsa = Frozen. I get it. Is the Frozen obsession still a thing? I don’t even know.

I started off with my mani with OPI I Vant to be A-Lone Star. Elsa is actually a pretty magnificent polish: three sizes of matte white glitter, sky blue glitter, and matte white snowflakes in a clear base. Neat! The white glitter distributes it self really well, the blue glitter requires some slight dabbing or toothpicking. The snowflake though? Well, I used 2 coats for my swatches and the snowflake you see is the only one I saw – which is fine with me, I think it makes the polish MUCH more versatile. The snowflakes are there, and there are plenty of them but if you were hoping for a snowflake glitter fest on your nails, be prepared to dig around.

You can buy Funky Fingers nail polish at Five Below –ย  are $2 each or 3 polishes for $5. While these polishes have been around for a few months, my Five Below had more than plenty so I imagine they’ll be available for quite a while.

Swatches below & keep your fingers crossed for a third Snow Day tomorrow!

  1. Fingers crossed for you! This is so perfect…love the pale grey-blues! Very pretty.

    There are no 5 Belows out here. :-/ I went in one I happened upon when traveling but sadly I walked out empty handed. They only had neons, in November. SMH. Hoping I get some Funky Fingers someday, I know they have really cute polishes!

    • Keep those fingers crossed – right now I have to go in two hours late (with no students). Lame.

      If you decide you want some FF let me know, I can grab some. They had some super cute neon glitters, too. I sent one to Paris and maybe two to Alli. I think..

  2. So so pretty… without the silly snowflakes. Personally I think the addition of the snowflakes takes it from lovely to tweeny, but that’s just me.

  3. Ooh, this is a good UNC glitter! Don’t worry about missing out on Frozen. IMO it’s overhyped. Now, Big Hero 6….that was an amazing Disney movie ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You make me feel better ๐Ÿ™‚

      Now… this Big Hero 6… does that mean there are 5 previous related films? I’m an old school Disney fan but haven’t kept up with their newer ventures (obviously).

      • Awww, happy to hear that! Nope, Big Hero 6 was based on a Marvel comic. It’s a superhero movie with lots of heart and an adorable robot named Baymax who steals every scene. I’d recommend it if you like Disney classics!

  4. Meh… Another venue that teaches little girls that you have to get seriously sexy to be happy…Elsa looked better in the movie’s first bit, before the Gaga makeup and the thigh high split skirt. You didn’t miss anything unless you wanted to witness a merchandising tour de force.

    Ranting aside, the mani is really pretty, though I agree the snowflakes are kind of overkill. Stay warm!

  5. Lovely colour combination. I like the snowflakes, but they look too big for many nails…

  6. I’m trying not to let myself love this mani. But it isn’t working. It’s so pretty! Too bad I don’t live around a 5 Below. I think I’m with the others. The man and I watched Frozen over the holidays. We were not impressed. Unfortunate too as I can’t get him to watch many. So I wasted a coupon for nothing. ๐Ÿ™‚ Rats!!

    • Just give in and love it ๐Ÿ™‚

      Sometimes I think it’d be better if I didn’t live near 5 Below – but I don’t go there all that often. Usually on a whim. It’s in the same shopping center as Trader Joe’s and ULTA. It’s actually surprising I don’t go in weekly… bi weekly… daily?

  7. […] hopefully sooner rather than later. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my snow days last week, my snow day mani, and the extra time with Otis & Mr. Lucy… but I’m pretty much over Winter. So […]

  8. […] I’d probably worn this polish once or twice before it ended up being the perfect base for my snow day mani. I Vant To Be A-Lone Star is just the lightest blue-grey packed with silver shimmer. I love the […]
