Day Twenty-Four Inspired by a Book - The Snow Queen

The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen is one of my favourite stories from my childhood. Tried to come up with a set of nails to do for the book. I cheated a little and used some images from the 1957 animated movie for inspiration.
I know I'm not the greatest artist and that my style is rather immature, but I try. I am terrible at drawing people, never mind trying to paint them with nail polish. haha

Here we have the Snow Queen, then Kay with a red rose and Gerda with a white rose and the sleigh that the Snow Queen stole Kay away with.
In this crooked second picture I was trying to show the words on my thumb better.
Here is my copy of The Snow Queen displaying all the polishes that I used. This book has such beautiful artwork. I only wish I was half as good as this artist. Anyway, the colours used starting from the bottom left were Blue Water Lilies, Cherry Jubilee, Real Red by Avon, then Mellow Yellow by Sally Hansen, and then the Avon colours of Garden Green, Chilling Teal, French White Tip, Stunning Cobalt, Licorice, Bare Necessity, Barefoot Beige and Urban Grey.
