Good afternoon! Are you ready for the tutorial I promised of yesterday’s Little Sister Blush Yeti nail art over Elevation Polish Angels are the Yetis of the Clouds? As I mentioned, this is almost the same tutorial as my previous Toothy Yeti Tutorial, but the last 2 steps are different. Inspired by the First Sunday Little Sister Blush Yeti plush sold in the Elevation Polish shop, she’s just as adorable as her big brother! The only tool needed for this tutorial is a nail art brush. Continue reading below as I walk you through the step by step process.
As I said it my original post of this design, I wanted to use as many Elevation Polish Yeti polishes as I could, so you will see 2 steps in this process where I layer a shimmery yeti over a creme of the same color. You certainly don’t have to add in these extra steps, I just loved incorporating them into the design. Let’s get started!
Polishes used: Elevation Polish Angels are the Yetis of the Clouds, OPI Alpine Snow, Elevation Polish Yeti Hugs: Feel So Close, Zoya Tiana, Elevation Polish The Twinkle in Yeti’s Eye, OPI Good Greif!, Elevation Polish NYC, and OPI Mod About You.
Step 2) Using the brush right out of the polish bottle, paint a rounded head shape half way up the nail using OPI Alpine Snow. If you don’t feel comfortable using the bottle brush, feel free to outline the shape with a nail art brush first before filling in. Let dry completely before moving on.
Step 3) Cover the white head with a thin coat of Elevation Polish Yeti Hugs: Feel So Close and let dry. This is one of those optional steps, but I really loved how this added color depth to the yeti and made it look almost fuzzy with dimension.
Step 4) Using the brush right out of the bottle, paint a smaller sideways oval on the bottom half of the yeti head with Zoya Tiana for the face. Again, if you aren’t comfortable doing this with the bottle brush, outline with a nail art brush first and then fill in. Let dry completely before moving on.
Step 9) Use OPI Mod About You and your nail art brush to make oval cheek blush shapes under each eye. You can use a dotting tool for this if you don’t mind having a circle and not oval shape. Do whichever you are most comfortable with!
After this step, I also added a coat of top coat to seal in the design and add shine. I recommend thicker quick drying top coats like Seche, Poshe, KBShimmer, Girly Bits, or HK Girl for topping nail art. Get a large dollop of top coat on the brush and hover above the nail spreading the top coat without touching the bristles to the design. Thinner top coats can drag the image so use those at your own risk.
