Minnie Mouse!

Howdy!

Happy Monday, hope it was a good one for you! :) Today I have a really cute Minnie Mouse mani to share.

This was kind of the spur of the moment nail art. I did the dots first and I thought "Hey, this looks like Minnie Mouse" so I took the polish off my ring finger and did a Minnie accent.






I used Wet and Wild Megalast in Caught Red Handed and NYC French white tip for the polka dots and craft paint for Minnie.

And do you see the smudging? Yeah, that's all thanks to Julep "fast dry" top coat. You might think I put it on while it was still wet, but no, it was dry a good 45 minutes to an hour before I ever ever got around to putting the topcoat on. :/ This also happened when I used it over stamping and it's hardly a fast dry, so it gets a big red F from me. Glad I only paid a penny for it, it normally retails for $14 and you only get 8ml. I will definitely be sticking to Seche Vite from now on, I get it for about $9 and get almost twice the amount as the Julep and it actually WORKS!!!!

Anyhoo, sorry for my little rant lol It's just irritating to spend time on nail art and it get screwed up. If my rant helps someone else's art not get screwed up, then it's all for a good cause. ;)

XOXO

  3. This is adorable! Amazing job on making the word Minnie look perfect. I can barely draw lines on my nails, let alone cursive words!

    1. Thank you! :) It did take some extra cleaning up to get the cursive to look like an actual word instead of scribble. I still think it looks like Mirrie instead of Minnie though lol.
