Nail Art: Monster University

It has been quite awhile since I did some cartoon nail art design. But since Monsters University is now showing in the theaters, I thought it was a good excuse for me to do some cartooning on my nails.

Let me tell you this early that I am not so proud of how this mani turned out as a whole. But I love how my version of Mike Wazowski turned out. I think I might have painted James P. Sullivan like a pig of sort? Regardless of the results, I chose not to watch the movie without appropriate nail art!

Please be kind to this:

Not so good eh? I wasn't even sure if the polka dots worked at all!

I normally don't publish nail designs that I am doubtful at. But perhaps this is a good exception. For the love of the movie! :)

Here are the polished I used for base color:
  • Dazzle Dry Spearmint Tea - 2 coats for James P. Sullivan
  • OPI Did it on Em - 2 coats for Mike Wazowski
  • Dazzle Dry Midnight Express - 1 coat for the black
  • Dazzle Dry White Lightning - 2 coats for Monsters University Logo

I hand-painted Sullivan and Mike using acrylic paints and a detailing nail art brush. I also used a dotting tool for the random polka dots on all the other nails.

Here's a close-up on the Monsters University logo:

I think I enjoyed the movie more than I enjoyed doing this nail art. Something seems really off. It's like the colors themselves are not coherent. Oh well, I guess there will always be moments like this when you cannot fully satisfy your own standards or expectations.

How about you? Have you seen the movie? Did you wear Mike and Sully on your nails too? :)

  1. I'm sorry you aren't happy with this nail art - I LOVE it. I like that it isn't too literal - just close ups of two faces instead of trying to draw their entire bodies. Sully's eyebrows are awesome, and I think the colors for the dotted nails keep it a little more sophisticated rather than childish.

    1. Thank you very much. Perhaps I am being too harsh on mself. I can see now that the black and polka is good alternative. :)
