Nails of the Week #76: Disney Potter

Right this very second I'm at Disneyland. Well I guess technically I'm at California Adventure today but it's all semantics. Naturally I just HAD to do some themed nails. It's a mixed plate this week where I dedicated two nails to Harry Potter and two nails to the famous mouse couple themselves. I tried to think of more Disney things to have two different nails but nothing is more iconic than Mickey and Minnie themselves. I'm by no means the best nail art artist still but I love how it turned out anyways.

First up lets talk about the Disney nails. Using Essie in A List I painted all over the nail. Then using a steady hand (mostly since I wasn't patient enough to tape it off) I blocked off the top half with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Black Satin. Then using my trusty Color Club Duo Pen in White I did the two large dots to symbolize the buttons for Mickey and the polka dot pattern for Minnie's dress as well as the white bow for her head. I know, the bow is technically red but I don't have a red nail art pen and I'm not nearly talented enough to try and use some regular polish for that. For Harry Potter I went with the lightning bolt and the glasses. The lightning bolt features a solid background in my Rimmel with a nice shimmery Essie in Shine of the Times on top to give it some glittery magic dimension. Then using the nail art pen I free handed the lightning bolt. For the glasses I used Essie in Private Weekend for the white background and using my duo pen in black for draw on the glasses. For the last accent nail I just used the Rimmel and Models Own in Red Sea to tie everything together. All in all some pretty fun nails, check back next week to hear about my trip!
