I've been M.I.A. lately because of school; I'm trying to control and discipline myself especially when it comes to Facebook-ing and basically anything in the cyberworld. You know how it is, guys, right? The web is a black hole that sucks you deep in -- without you even noticing. So yeah, I super-minimize my internet use on weekdays and just catch-up on weekends.
Anyways, that's the reason why this post is already two weeks late. I made & wore this nail design two weeks ago when I was kind of in a need to relieve some stress and thinkings. I was originally planning to try to make a creative and uncommon French Manicure, but I decided to do this instead.
Come and sing with me now. 5-6-7-8!
BA-BA-BA BA-BANANA, BA-BA-BA BA-BANANA
They really served their purpose -- relieve me of stress. Everytime I look at my nails, there would be this certain explosion of fun and happiness, so it really helped. Plus, I got a lot of compliments from my friends and even from strangers! Guards, fastfood cashier, registration assistants, and basically just anyone! I bet my nails loved all the attention they got. :))
Moving on, I know this is just tooooo cute so I would like to share with you a quick tutorial on how to do it. Sorry if I couldn't manage to do video tutorials yet, but I'd try to make time for it, okay? ;)
Clean your nails & shape them any way you want. I shaped my nails squoval since I thought it would be best for the minions' body. Afterwards, apply a base coat/nail hardener (NOTE: this is important to avoid having your nails stained, and of course so you could protect them).
Apply a bright lemon yellow polish. I, however, didn't have such color of nail polish so I just used an acrylic paint of the same hue.
Paint the tips with blue polish or acrylic paint, and then stripe some black paint across (to serve as the goggles' strap).
Draw the details! :DSorry if I wasn't able to take photos of the nitty-gritty details -- I FORGOT! I was so focused on drawing 'em, that's why. I was just using a standard watercolor brush because I don't have nail art brushes yet, so it's really hard especially when drawing small details such as the teeth and stuff.
FLAUNT YOUR NAILS AND MAKE EVERYONE SING BANANAAA! :)
Here are more photos (because I just couldn't get enough of 'em):
Let me know when you get to try your own Minions Nails, okay?
