Mickey

Hi! Here I will show you how to paint Mickey on nails

Step-by-step tutorial

1) Start with nails prep
2) I applied a white gel polish and cured
3) I covered the nail with a top coat, cured and removed the tacky layer
4) Then I buffed the nail with not rough nail buffer (I used 240 grit). (It is easier to draw on the rough surface, so I did 3-4 steps) Cleaned the nail with a cleanser
5) I sketched my design in pencil

11) I contoured my design with black gel paint and cured a little. Using the mix of a top coat and a brown gel polish I made shades darker. Then I added highlights onto his black parts with the mix of a top coat, blue and white gel polishes. Also I blended a pink gel polish and a top coat for blush. Cured for 2 minutes in UV lamp or 30 seconds in LED lamp
