Disney Mickey and Minnie Nail Art

Mickey and Minnie Nail Art

Minnie Mouse is one of my favorite Disney characters!  She’s adorable for little girls and grown up girls too!  I love her sweet face, her relationship with the mouse who started it all, Mickey, and her love of polka dots.  What’s not to like?

If you follow me on Pinterest {and I hope you all do!} you’ve been bombarded with my Minnie Mouse pins lately.  I’m sorry about that!  You see, my little girl is about to turn two and I’m searching for every idea possible to make her Minnie Mouse party a success.  {Check out my DIY Minnie Mouse Halloween costume I made her.}  While browsing and browsing I found quite a few cute Minnie Mouse nail designs {which I pinned on my Pretty Nails board}.  Some were simple and some were far above my skill level.  I chose to do a design that was right in the middle.  It stretched me out of my comfort zone and I’m very pleased with the results.  If you think these are awful, please keep your comments to yourself.  Don’t bust my bubble!

My favorite Mickey and Minnie images are from the 70’s and 80’s.  Do you remember the ones?  Minnie wore a blue dress, yellow shoes, and a hat with a flower in it?  I tried to make my characters look like the ones from back then except that Minnie has a bow instead of a hat.

Have you ever done your own Mickey and Minnie Mouse Nail Art?  If so, I would love to see it!

Products Used:

Here is a list of the products that I used for my Mickey and Minnie Mouse Design:

  • – Julep Polish in a beautiful shade that isn’t available yet….that I got to name!!!  I can finally cross that item off of my bucket list.  This color will be making it’s debut soon.  Don’t you want to buy it?  I think it’s absolutely beautiful!  My poor photography skills make it look a little darker in the picture than it actually is but don’t you love the rose gold flecks in it?  Even if I didn’t have the privilege of picking the color and naming it myself it would still be my favorite polish.
  • White Nail Art Paint (Milani)
  • Dotting Tool
  • Black Polish (Sally Hansen)
  • Base and Top Coat (Julep Base Coat, Julep Polymer Top Coat)

I’m sorry that this isn’t a tutorial post but I don’t think I could do it again if I tried!  I set aside a block of time, figured out what I wanted my design to be, and carefully applied each stroke.  Sometimes I used my dotting tool or my fingernail to remove a little paint if I went a little too far.  After I was happy with my design I sealed it off with a top coat.

Even though this isn’t a tutorial, I would be happy to do my best to try and answer any questions you might have so please feel free to leave them in the comments below.  Plus, feel free to leave a comment here telling Julep what you think of their new polish color!

    This is totally adorable! Terrific Nail Art. I’m falling in love with all the Julep colors… especially the color you used 🙂

    • AshleyWalkup says

      Aww, thank you! I do love Julep’s fun colors and yes, this one is my absolute favorite across all brands…and not just because I got to name it!

  2. Jennifer Clay says

    This is super cute! I wish I could do stuff like this!

    • AshleyWalkup says

      Thank you! You could do it, it just takes time and patience. Start with something small and work your way up too the more complicated designs. You can do it!

  3. These are too cute! I have to copy this idea. 🙂

    • AshleyWalkup says

      Absolutely, feel free! Just be sure to show me a link if you post about it…or email me a picture if you don’t. 🙂

  4. You make me jealous with your ability to do nail art! Too cute, Ashley!

  5. suelee1998 says

    I love this! It is too cute 🙂

  6. Brett Martin says

    adorable!! i can’t believe you got to name a color- HOW COOL!!

    • AshleyWalkup says

      I know!! I’ve known for months and months now but it still excites me like a little kid going to Disney World.

  7. That is so cute!! I love the nail polish that you christened. It amazes me that you can draw like that with nail polish, holy cow! Do you do the drawings on one hand and leave the other hand with the plain polish? Because I’d have a hard time doing a design like that with my dominant hand, never mind the non-dominant one, LOL!

    • AshleyWalkup says

      Thank you! Usually I try to stick to more basic designs on my dominant hand. With this design I just had hearts across all of the fingers on my right hand. I used to do both hands detailed for blog posts then I realized I can only take a picture of one at a time so I might as well just do one and not stress over the other.

  8. You did a great job! It’s adorable Ashley. Can’t wait to hear the name of that gorgeous polish. I love Julep nail polish.

  9. Dawn Lopez says

    Oh how super adorable is that? Totally love it! Love Mickey and Minnie, always bring back such fun memories!

  10. Katherine Bartlett says

    You are so talented! That’s amazing!

  11. I love, love it!I just had my toes done with red polish and glitter over the top but she didn’t know how to add the nail art of Mickey so I was bummed. I sure do love your idea!

  12. Jennifer Soltys says

  16. cookiesandclogs says

    You did that freehand??!! You are so amazingly talented! And how cool is it that you got to name a polish?!

    • AshleyWalkup says

      I did. lol Thank you! I think I’m more patient than talented though. Yes, I’m still thrilled about naming my own polish!!!

  17. Tammy Johnson Berbells says

    I could never do this. I have a steady hand but not this talented! 🙂

  18. Jo-Ann Brightman says

    You did a marvelous job but I don’t think I could do it and am not that talented, especially to attempt it freehand.
