Nail Art Tutorial: French Tip Disneyland

It's nail art tutorial once again!!! I have cut my nails short because I've had one pointer finger nail chipped because....well read this out, this is a crazy story! LOL I bought a lot of goodies for my family and they all have tag prices on each item and I haev to remove them one by one! LOL AND the final straw would be me removing the sifter sticker from the EDM samples..and whoops! It just chipped!!! :( lol

I know, it's NOT important but there should be a story behind everything right? RIGHT! So let's move on!

I've been to Disney and I've been having the Mickey/Minnie Mouse on top of my head all the time! LOL I loved Minnie Mouse' skirt! I saw her wearing a clean crisp outfit on my last Disneyland trip! LOL A lot of beauty bloggers like Alyssa has done this as well, so feel free to check her site for her lovely nail art tutorials too!

Step 1:

Paint a base color, this time I chose a very light pink color from ELF (Thanks Toma)





Step 2:

I applied sparkly blue nail polish, French tip



Step 3:

I put a bit of white polish on a dish, using my "dotting pen", slowly dot the white polish on top of the blue French tip (You can see yellow polish on the dish, I tried putting it on but the color doesn't show up on the dark blue ....lol trial and error definitely!)



Step 4:

You don't have to make it perfect, you can count the dots you want but I prefer to have it imperfect! :P



Step 5:

Swipe a gold polish (or any polish color you would like) just below the Blue French tip to liven-up the nail art



Step 6:

Wait for a couple of minutes for the nail art to dry, top it off with a clear polish to protect the nail art and I've used Sally Hansen Kwik Dry as well to speed up the drying time



Let me show you what I've done for my toe nails!
Same concept different colors!

Introducing, Mickey Fingernails and Minnie ToeNails!



Life is too short to worry about imperfection
Just do whatever you want to make you grow!
and be happy!
I'd love to do these til 80 yrs old!
I want to be a cool grandmommy LMAO!
