Despicable Me Minion Nail Tutorial

Despicable Me Minion Nail Tutorial

My Kids and I are super excited to heading off to see the premier of Despicable Me 2 this week. The girl is so excited that she asked if I could do her nails in yellow like the minions. I took it one, ok a few steps further and turned her nails into little minions.

Items Needed:

  • Yellow Nail Polish
  • Blue Nail Polish
  • Gray Nail Polish
  • Black Nail Polish
  • White Nail Polish
  • Toothpick
  • Tape

I am no artist (I can’t even draw a straight line with a ruler), but seeing how excited The Girl was, I did my best.

I started off by painting all of her nails Yellow. Yes, her nails are long, and I am a bit jealous…lol

Make sure to let the yellow polish dry completely. Now, if you have a steady hand, you don’t need the tape. I don’t have a steady hand, so I taped off the tips of her nails so I could paint them blue. To ensure the tape wasn’t too sticky, I stuck it to my jeans and peeled it off so it wouldn’t be so tacky.

I then painted the tips blue, as I painted each nail, I removed the tape so the blue wouldn’t peel off with it.

After I finished with the tips, I dipped the back end of a tooth pick to do the goggles. You could also use a bobby pin, pencil eraser, or if you have it, a nail dotter.

I carefully dotted the gray nail polish on each nail, I did one dot on some, and two dots on others. It is up to you on how many of each you want.

After I dotted the gray, I let it dry, and made smaller dots on top of the gray with white.

With the small end of the toothpick, I used to make the pupils of the minions, and also, dotted the mouths and goggle bands on.

After everything dried, I applied a clear top coat, and cleaned up the edges with a Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover.

They may not be perfect, but for a mom who loves to see her daughter smile, they are pretty darn good.
