Disney (Minnie Mouse) Nails

Minnie Mouse is a well loved Disney character and I thought these nails, based on the Minnie Mouse character, are a really cute nail art design so I gave it a go! Below is what they look like and if you like the look read below to find out how to create it ...

What will you need?

In order to create this look I used the colours light pink, white and black. You could use a different colour from light pink as a base colour, however I chose pink as I feel it is quite a girly look. You will also need a tooth pick and a piece of paper to place the nail varnish onto to create the more detailed parts of the nail art. 

Step-to-Step Guide...

Step 1: To begin, I painted the light pink colour all over my nails. Because the colour was quite sheer I used four cotes in order to create more of an opaque base, to make the other colours stand out.

Step 2: Once the pink base coat is dry, the next step is to paint the Minnie Mouse head shape onto your ring finger nail. The easiest way I found to do this was through first creating the large circle and then putting two smaller circles on the top. I created this through using a toothpick and dipping it into the black nail varnish.

Step 3: Next, again I  used a tooth pick, dipping it into the white nail varnish and placed dots onto my other nails. I alternated from the bottom corner to the top corner on each of the nails.

Step 4: The final stage is to put a white bow onto the top of the Minnie Mouse head. Again I used a toothpick to create this. Once all nail varnish is dry you can paint a top coat over the top in order to keep all the colours in place and prevent chipping.
