To create Mr Men nails you will need:
- White nail varnish
- Top coat
- Nail art tools / cocktail sticks
- A variety of nail paints / nail varnishes. These will be used to create each character.
You don't have to use the exact same nail varnishes and nail paints as me, if you've got a good range of nail varnishes then you'll easily be able to create these nails. Also, please do not feel like you have to rush out and buy nail art tools because it really isn't necessary, before I started to use nail art tools I used cocktail sticks and I found that they worked as great nail art tools.
If you want to create Mr Men nails then all you have to do is follow my nice and easy-ish steps.
1.) First, apply a coat of the white nail varnish to your nails. You may need more than one coat depending on what your nail varnish is like.
2.) It's time to create the characters. Using specific nail paints and also nail art tools, create the character bodies. For example, to create 'Mr Happys' body, use a dotting tool, yellow nail paint and then place a large dot in the centre of your nail. If this step sounds a little tricky then look at the photograph provided.
3.) Let's give our characters some arms, legs and feet. To do this you need to use a thin tipped brush and a variety of nail paints. You need to use the specific nail paint that you used to create the body, i.e. if you used a red nail paint to create 'Mr Strongs' body then you need to use the red nail paint when creating his arms, legs and feet.
4.) It's time to give our characters some eyes, a smile and little added extras.
For the eyes, all you have to do is use a small tipped dotting tool and black nail paint, apply 2 small dots to each character.
For the mouth, all you have to do is use a thin tipped brush and black nail paint, apply a thin curved line (mouth shape) to each of the characters.
For the extra features, e.g. hats, used a small tipped brush and the specified nail paint. For example, if 'Mr Tickle' has a blue hat then use the blue nail paint.
I repeated steps 2, 3 and 4 on my other hand but I created different Mr Men characters. Initially I thought about doing the same characters on both hands but I decided it'd look better if I had different characters.
Here are the other characters...
Once both hands are dry, apply a top coat as this will help to protect your nails.
Hope you like my Mr Men nails! If any of you would like to request a nail tutorial then please feel free to comment below! :D
