Initially, I was planning to use only black and white colors for this nail design. But I figured that would be sad to look at given my current disposition. Sigh. And so I decided to make it more colorful by playing with the cartoon characters' usual colors.
Mickey Mouse nail art design by Simply Rins
I used the following nail polishes for base colors:
- OPI The "It" Color to represent their yellow shoes.
- Sally Hansen Cherry Red for Mickey's red shorts and Minnie's red dress.
- Orly Liquid Vinyl for their black bodies.
- Essie Marshmallow as base for their faces.
- Zoya Buffy for Mickey's and Minnie's faces.
All colors were applied in 2 coats. For Mickey's and Minnie's faces, I used acrylic paint.
I have 2 accent nails for this Mickey Mouse nail art design. For a change, I painted Mickey and Minnie on my pointer fingers instead of painting on my ring fingers that I normally use for accents. And since Minnie would be harder to paint because of her large bow on her head, I decided to draw her on my left hand. I added polka dots on my left index fingernail to represent Minnie's dress that matched her ribbon.
I painted Mickey's face on my right hand. I added 2 buttons on my right ring finger to represent Mickey Mouse's shorts. Looking at it right now, I think it would be better if the buttons were bigger. Would you say so too?
This Mickey Mouse nail design makes me want to go back to Disneyland that claims to be the happiest place on Earth. I need lots and lots of happiness to go my way right now. Oh, and I am going to tell you all a secret. Mickey kissed me during my visit to Disneyland a few years back and I have a picture to prove it! Blush
I wish I was into nail art the day I visited Disneyland. It would have been really nice to have a Disney inspired nail design as I explored the happiest place on Earth. I would have probably painted Mickey's friends on my other nails.
Have you visited Disneyland? Where you wearing Mickey Mouse or your favorite Disney character nail design?
