I have been SO EXCITED about showing you all this manicure…..Mario Mushrooms! Aren’t they the cutest things ever?! They might have taken me FOREVER to do, but it was totally worth it.
If you’ve ever played Super Mario or Mario Kart, I’m hoping you’ll know exactly what these are. It was amazing how many people at work who hadn’t played the games thought they were ladybirds though….go figure.
I started my painting three nails with Barry M Blood Orange (actually a red) and one nail with Barry M Spring Green. After that had dried, I used Barry M Lychee and a tiny paintbrush to paint on their little bodies. I then tried to use my Barry M Nail Art Pen in White to draw on the spots, but they were a little too runny, so I reverted to my tiny paintbrush and a bottle of Barry M Matt White. Once it was all dry, I used Nails Inc Black Taxi (not Barry M shock horror!!) to paint on the thin border and the little eyes.
Cutest thing I’ve ever done?
