Movember Nails

To help support Movember and its mission of supporting men’s health, I thought it would be fun to paint a moustached face on one hand and a coordinating pattern on the other hand. I think they go very well together. Hope you do, too!

Let’s get started!

Supplies:

Nail Polish Remover
Stripe Rite Black Striping Polish
Polish Remover Pads
Wax paper
Clear Base Coat
Clear Top Coat
Sally Girl Pure White
Dotting Tool or Toothpick

Remove your old polish, file and buff your nails. Apply a clear basecoat and let dry.

Step 1: With the Sally Girl Pure White polish, paint the entire nail. You will probably need two coats. Let dry.

Step 2: Using Stripe Rite black striping polish, beginning in the lower third of the nail in the center, paint one half of the mustache. The shape is a little like a “leaf”. Then paint the other half the same way.

Next, drip a few drops of the black polish on piece of wax paper. With the large end of a dotting tool, make two dots for eyes. And, using the striping brush, paint two eyebrows above each eye.

Step 4: Before painting this step, be sure the eyes are completely dry. Drip a few drops of white polish on the piece of wax paper. With a smaller dotting tool, paint a white dot in the center of each eye to make glasses. Let dry.

For an alternate look on the other hand, paint your nails black with a thin white stripe across the tip. Let dry.

To finish, apply two coats of topcoat to all nails and let dry.

I think this design is a great way to support such an important cause. I hope you enjoy painting them as much as I did.

Until next time…keep those nails covered.
