Oh Mickey You're So Fine!

I got the idea for this post from an outfit I saw somebody wearing. They had faded polka dot jeans with a vintage-inspired Mickey Mouse sweatshirt which I thought looked pretty cool together. 

To create this look I used Barry M's Blueberry for the blue base. I then used a white nail art pen to draw on the polka dots and sealed with a coat of Seche Vite. For the accent nail I used a base of Barry M's Coconut*. I then used a fine pen (not a nail art pen) to draw Mickey. The pen kind of split from the polish which actually gave a nice sketchy feel. If you want more of a block outline then maybe go over the top with black polish and a thin brush or try drawing the whole thing with a nail art pen. I used a tiny touch of Barry M's Blood Orange for the tongue. 

In hindsight I would have used a lighter blue for the base coat - maybe Barry M's Huckleberry - and I would have practised my Mickey before drawing him as he looks a bit weird! Also, please excuse my nibbled index finger. I know it looks horrible, I am trying to stop so bear with me! 




  1. I love these! I wish I could paint pictures as well as that :-)

    1. Thank you! Your nails look pretty impressive to us. We bet you could draw a Mickey! If not now, with a tiny bit more practise you will definitely be able to. E&J.xx

  2. I love these! Mickey is so detailed too! I love the sketchy feel of Mickey and the faded idea works so well! :)

  3. I'm loving your nice collection. This is very beneficial for everyone who mostly goes to the office. I love very much. you choose fabulous color for nail art.I'll save these all design in my folder so that I'm also suggest to my friends..
