Tinkerbell Nail Art

The Tinkerbell Half Marathon weekend at Disneyland is coming up so I am sharing a tutorial on how to paint Tinkerbell inspired nails! Whether you are doing the half, 10k, 5k or cheering people on, these nails are the perfect way to fit in to the fairy theme!

To start off, paint your nails a color of your choosing.  For my nails, I went with what I imagine is Tinkerbell's favorite color- green!  I used Sally Hansen "Green With Envy."
After I let the polish dry completely, I used a toothpick to paint Tinkerbell's silhouette onto my ring finger.  Tinkerbell is a little tricky to do but I tried to put together a guide in the image below:

Because it's a silhouette it doesn't have to be perfect.  If you have nail tools, you can use those to paint her but I found that the toothpick worked well for me!  After I painted on Tink, I added pixie dust using gold glittery polish!  I used a thin polish brush to do this but you could probably use a toothpick as well or a normal polish brush if you apply it carefully. At the end you have pretty fairy-like nails!

If Tinkerbell seems a little too complicated or if you are short on time, you can also do a simpler mani that is pixie dust inspired! 

To do this just paint your nails whichever color you choose and then after it dries, add some gold or silver glitter polish.  I love glittery polish- it always reminds me of pixie dust!  This mani would be a great match for a Tinkerbell or other fairy inspired look!

I hope you all enjoyed this nail art tutorial!  If any of you are doing some of the Tinkerbell runDisney events this weekend, I wish you luck and hope you have lots of fun!  Remember:  “The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” ― J.M. Barrie.  Always believe in yourself and don't give up!  Have a great week everyone!


  1. Luv Tinkerbell! That green matches her dress spot on! I like the tutorial - I am going to try this. The silhouette is a good idea. Hope you have a great week too! :)

  2. I LOVE THIS!! I love Tink and I think you did such a great job on the silhouette! Plus I really love that quote. Good luck on the race this weekend! :D

  3. I love that you have a step-by-step "how to" for Tink!! So many times, I see some awesome nail art and wonder how the heck did they do that?! :P And in reality, I should try to be better at instructing people on how to get the look, not just showing it. This is such a cute mani!!! :D

    1. Thanks Emily! I'm happy you liked the Tink "how to". I feel that way too when I see other nail art so I thought it would be helpful. I hope to include more tutorials like that in the future! :) Thanks for reading!
