Good 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 – 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!
