Not even a mouse - Mouse nail art

Sunday, December 9, 2012

Not a creature was stirring - not even a mouse...

I have some cute little critters to share with you today. These little Christmas mice are popping up everywhere. I intentionally made them facing different directions so it would look like they were peeking.

I used Zoya nail polishes for these little guys. I like Zoya for nail art - and it helps that I have plenty of them so I usually have all the colors I need.

If I had to change one thing about these mice it would be to make their eyes a little lower on their face. But I am still pretty pleased with how they came out.

Step one - Apply your base color. I used Zoya Richelle. Then I used a nail art brush and applied the gray polish for the outline. (I used a mixture of Zoya Purity and Kelly.)


Step two - fill in the outline with the gray.


Step three, four and five - I used a dotting tool and Zoya Raven for the eyes. Then I dotted Zoya Shelby for the nose and the pink in the ear. I also used a nail art brush and applied the whiskers.


Step six - I used Zoya Eliza and a nail art brush to make the red in the hat.


Step 7 - I dotted on the pom pom with Zoya Purity and striped on the fur line of the hat.

A nice top coat seals the design and smooths it out. There you have it... Cute little critters!
