My husband and I are big fans of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit! In fact while we were dating we saw a men's shirt with Oswald on it. I bought it for him and he joked that he would propose to me in it! Sure enough a year or two later, he happened to be wearing it under a jacket when he popped the question! When we heard about Epic Mickey we were really excited since Oswald is a big part of it! (There's a second one coming out that we're just as excited for!)
I've been wanting to do a design inspired by the game for a little while and finally decided to try it out last Sunday!
I'd been sketching ideas on paper and finally settled on this one which I recreated on the computer. I left out the thumb.
First off I painted each nail the corresponding color. For the ones with Mickey and Oswald's shorts, I put tape on the top part of the nail and then painted the bottom of it black.
Once the black polish was completely dry, I removed the tape and put new strips of tape on the painted part of the nail and filled in the rest. After that my nails looked like this:
For my thumb I painted it white. I had been thinking of trying to paint Mickey's paintbrush on there but at the last minute I had the idea of doing the game's logo instead.
Here are all of the completed nails together!
Thumb= Epic Mickey logo
Index finger= Mickey's shorts
Middle finger= Oswald's ears
Ring finger= Mickey ears
Pinky- Oswald's shorts
So those are my Epic Mickey nails! I was happy with how they came out and kept them all week! I think my husband liked them too because yesterday he was playing the Epic Mickey game again!
Happy weekend everyone!
