We count The Little Mermaid as one of our favorite Disney movies of all time. We still dream of turning into a mermaid and living in an underwater castle.

As we got older, we’ve (mostly) traded this fantasy for an apartment and doorman, but we’ll never forget the adventures of Ariel and her ocean buddies. If you, too, are passionately obsessed with all things Disney, then you’ll definitely want to re-create this The Little Mermaid nail art.

In a detailed tutorial, the artist shows how to paint on characters like Flounder, Sebastian, and (of course!) Ariel, using a thin brush to freehand all the designs. The final look is so completely in tune with all of our childhood memories of the movie that it’s impossible to not fall in love with it.
