MINIONS!! - Despicable Me Nail Art

Last weekend I went to go see Despicable Me 2 with my sister, and I just couldn't resist doing minion nail art! I have seen so many cute minion nail designs (most recently from Rebecca Likes Nails, though I don't think she has posted them up yet) and I knew I wanted to try one out for myself.

I had a lot of fun assembling the pieces for each of their faces -- eyes (both placement and quantity), mouth, general expression -- they are all unique!


For those of you unfamiliar with the minions, here's a good YouTube montage of minion clips. The minions are basically the main character's creations, and he uses them to help him execute his evil plans. They like to goof off though, and are a huge part of the comedy in the movies! Very endearing.



For my version, I started with a base of Lime Crime Crema de Limon.
Then, I added the eyes in white, and the irises in China Glaze Call of the Wild. I outlined the goggles with A England Fated Prince and added the strap in black.
The tongues are done with Zoya Renee.
Lastly, I added their overalls in American Apparel Mount Royal, and distressed them a bit with China Glaze Secret Peri-winkle.



The movie turned out to be really cute, and I liked knowing I was watching it with my own little minion buddies!

Plus, we went and got Dairy Queen afterwards... Choco Cherry Love Blizzard!



Have you seen Despicable Me 2 yet?

  26. What about your right hand? I'm right handed and I'm a perfectionist and don't want my right hand to be painted and look like crap. Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  27. You could do a tape manicure -- yellow base, a block of blue near the tips, and a stripe of gunmetal closer to the cuticle! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Tapes are easy. But is that meant to be a minion? I dont want one awesomely painted hand and one plain. I hate that my left hand isn't as good.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I appreciate the help! I just wish my lefty could be more perfect like my right. Lol. And right?! That'd be so convenient. Lol.
