Happy Monday! Today I have for you my weekly installment for the ABCs of nail art challenge in the Facebook group, Llama Nails. Each week we have to do nail art related to a specific letter and this week's letter is M. I decided to do Minnie Mouse. I couldn't be happier with the way this turned out. I tried a new base coat with this mani and it lasted two days! My manicures never last this long. I picked up the Fiberized Ridge Filler from the Pro FX line. I got it at WalMart and a 2.5 fluid oz. bottle cost me right around five dollars. I am so glad that I picked this up because I used it on this mani and the one I did yesterday, and my mani's have never stayed on my nails better!
Base coat: Fiberized Ridge Filler from Pro FX
Base color: Red Red from Wet N Wild - 1 coat. UMM CAN YOU BELIEVE ONE COAT?!?! YEAH, ME NEITHER. OK, done freaking out about that.
White on the Spot from Milani -2 coats
White dots: Superstar from Pure Ice
Minnie Mouse: All acrylic paint is from Artist's Loft that I bought at Michaels
Face-Titanium White, Burnt Sienna, and Yellow Ochre
Bow-Crimson Red and Titanium White for the dots
Tongue-Crimson Red mixed with Titanium White
Top coat: Seche Vite
I used a dotting tool to apply all the polka dots that are not on my accent nail. I used my smallest brush for all of Minnie except for the eyelashes; I used my striping brush for that.
