Minnie inspired nails

These cute Minnie inspired nails will go with a range of coloured outfits, and they're very simple to do! 

Firstly, you will need to do your base coat, a clear base coat is best as it helps keep your nails from staining from the dark colours. You will then need to paint your fist coat of your colour, in this case it is red and then white for the statement nail. (This design also works with a range of colours, be adventurous!) 
A second coat is best for a great coverage of the nail. It is important that you wait for each coat to dry fully before applying the next coat!
Waiting for each coat to dry fully is essential for your nails to look there best, so stop being impatient!
You will then grab a dotting tool, cheap as chips on Ebay, but if you don't have one to hand, a tooth pick is just as affective. Paint a blob (Definitely the technical word, I promise) onto the dotting tool or tooth pick, the bigger the blob, the bigger the dots will turn out, so if you want small dots make sure you only put a small amount on your tool of choice. Repeat until you have the desired look you want.
Lastly, you will need to add a top coat to your design.

All nail varnishes used for this design were Barry M, Bright Red, White, and Base/Top coat.
