Today is Day 23 of The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge! Today’s challenge is Inspired by a Movie.
For this challenge, I was inspired by the Minions movie! Ever since watching Despicable Me, I thought the Minions were super cute. Everyone has probably seen a thousand Minion themed nails, and I just had to jump on the bandwagon.
I don’t know why I keep attempting to do freehand. I’m not even good at the simplest designs.. such as a Minion. I am hoping the more I do it, the better I’ll eventually get.
I started by painting my pinky, middle finger, & thumb with two coats of Beyond the Nail – Spring Yellow Creme. I painted my ring finger with three thin coats of Beyond the Nail – Holographic Silver Microglitter, and my index finger with two coats of Beyond the Nail – Sloteazzy. For my Minion (on my middle finger), I wanted him to be holographic because … well, I really don’t need an explanation for that do I? I added one coat of Beyond the Nail – Shooting Star over the base, and then added a thick line across the tip of my nail with Sloteazzy. For the face, I used Beyond the Nail – Deep Black (for the glasses band, eyeball & mouth), Holographic Silver Microglitter (for the glasses frame), and Sinful Colors – Snow Me White (for the eyeball). I topped each nail off with one coat of PRO-FX – Quick Dry Topcoat.
