Totoro, soot ball, and the Cat bus!

Materials:

Base/Top Polish
Black/Grey Polish
White Polish
Blue Polish
Orange/Brown Polish
Pink Polish
Green Polish (for the base)
& Many toothpicks!

How To:

*Always start by painting your nails with the base polish.This keeps nails healthy and strong, and also allows paint to be removed  off cleanly and completely.

=After applying the green, or any other bottom color, make a Totoro on your thumb. To do this, use a toothpick and outline his head in black, kind of like a cat head.  Fill it in with grey, then use white to make his chest and eyes. Do tiny details like pupils, nose, mouth, whiskers, and chest triangles with the black.

=For the index finger, use a blue polish to make a tiny umbrella. Add details in black with a toothpick, like the folds of the material and the handle.

=Middle finger: Soot ball! Just form a circle in the middle of your nail, add two white dots, and two smaller black dots in the middle of that. Easyyy!

=Ring Finger: Cat Bus! Similar to how you made Totoro, outline a cat head in orange. Add a dark part for his head markings, eyes, nose, and giant, toothy smile.

=For the pinky finger, draw a simple semi-circle at the top in pink. Using a lighter pink, add a slightly curving line for the stalk of the mushroom. Also with this color, dot the semi-circle a few times for spots on the mushroom.

= Voila! Let dry completely before you cover with a top polish. This allows it to stay on longer without chipping and makes it super shiny! (:
