IS IT A BIRD? IS IT A PLANE? NO IT’S…… MINION NAILS

 

Hands up, I’m obsessed with minions- I really love them (They can somehow find something good in every situation and I just love their (bad) humor and pure hearts)

So today I will show you a short tutorial on how to do minion nails (beware some of the pictures are a little blurry-I seriously have to charge my camera):

Materials:

  • Black, blue, white, yellow and silver nail polish
  • Base and top coat (mine is 2 in 1)
  • Dotting tools (If you dont have these you can just use a toothpick or try dotting with the nail polish brush)
  • A small brush

  1. Make sure your nails are clean
  2. Start painting your nails with a base coat
  3. Paint your nails with your yellow colour (either one or two coats-mine needed two)16216085_10209232076746705_902261081_n
  4. Now take your small brush and paint on those cute blue pants16237424_10209232076586701_1458314127_n
  5. Use your dotting tool to first dot a black dot as eyes (you can choose one or two dots)16216401_10209232076386696_1763022962_n
  6. Now take a smaller dotting tool and make a silver dot inside the black dot-this it the goggles16237171_10209232076466698_1312356344_n
  7. Now take an even smaller dotting tool and make a white dot inside the silver dot-this is the eyes16215975_10209232074306644_981800929_n
  8. Now you take an even even smaller dotting tool (oh all these dots) and make the pupil16176813_10209232074066638_1162399618_n
  9. You now take your small brush again and make the google straps with a black nail polish16215475_10209232074346645_1406271556_n
  10. Now you just need the small black dots to hold the pants up (yes! More dots)16176802_10209232332233092_505803953_n *This one has kind of stange eyes, but I think it just make it even cuter
  11. Last a top coat and voila!

That was it for the minion nails- I hope you liked it!
Have you ever made minion nails before(Or any other minion craft) feel free to comment below-I love everything minion related and would love to see what you guys can come up with

 

Then I have a preview for you guys. I’m right now making something amazing for you guys!

You remember how I promised to make a tutorial for some of the Christmas presents I made, well a lot of them was made out of old magazines.

Next time will be the big reveal on the purse I made for my mom, but this time will be a little easier.

This time it is magazine coasters:

Materials:

  • Glue stick
  • Old magazines (or any other kind of paper)

 

  1. First you take out some pages in your magazine and cut them in half (on the long part)
  2. Then you cut them in half again (still the long part-and it should look like this)16176283_10209232365553925_2094559070_n
  3. You then fold the paper in half twice(you can glue it together to make sure it won’t open by itself)16216192_10209232365473923_1437933330_n
  4. Now just take your paper strap and start rolling it so that it makes a spiral (remember to use glue so that it won’t unroll by itself)16176481_10209232365433922_1774152845_n
  5. Add a new paper strap and start rolling it on where the last piece of paper stopped16215854_10209232365593926_859844926_n.jpg
  6. Keep on doing this until you get the desired size
  7. Voila!16144566_10155729059912586_2099909194_n

 

This is it for this time! Next time will be a small purse just like this one (this is the  one I made for my mother this christmas)16144813_10155729042172586_1505391937_n
