Hi there! This instructable will show you how to create supercute and easy minion nails. For the minion nailart you will need the following materials:
- Yellow nailpolish
- Black striper
- Blue nailpolish
- Grey or silver nailpolish
- Googly eyes (you can get these in most craftstores)
Let's get started!
Step 1: Apply Yellow Polish
Apply some yellow nailpolish to all of your nails. This might need some time, but make sure you use enough layers so the color is opaque.
Step 2: Create Minion Goggles
Choose one nail for your minion design. We will deal with the other nails later. Draw a black line at the top of your nail. Once your "headband" has dried, apply grey nailpolish on top of it in a round shape. This doesn't need to be perfect. Once your grey polish has dried, take your black striper again and draw small lines around the goggles.
Step 3: Provide Your Minion With an Eye
Grab your googly eye and place it on the grey dot. Use some more grey nailpolish to make it stick.
Step 4: Draw the Mouth & Add Blue
Now it's time to draw the mouth. Make sure you practice first, it took me a couple tries to get it just right. Don't worry if you make a mistake, you can easily correct it by applying some more yellow polish.
After you have finished your minion, apply diagonal stripes of blue to all of the other nails. This will represent the blue outfits the minions are wearing.
Step 5: Clean Up & Apply Top Coat
Unfortunately, I forgot to clean up before I took the pictures, but you get the idea. Make sure you apply a topcoat so your design will last a little longer. Obviously the googly eyes are not ideal, but I'm sure you'll love it! It's so cute and easy.
Have fun creating this design, and let's just say: banana!
