You may remember that a while ago, I had a friend ask me to paint Minions on her nails, so I practiced and did a set for her. (You can see my post on my Minion nail art here.)
Well, her friend had a Minion-themed party, and invited me to come! There was a big Minion cake!
And there were Minion cupcakes! With REAL Twinkies!
My contribution was to paint a few of the girls' nails. The hostess wanted, of course, Minion nails, which I was more than happy to do.
Everyone was duly impressed that I gave some of the Minions teeth. I have to say, that's one of my favorite details!
These turned out so cute! I love them. The colors I used to make the Minions: Zoya Pippa, OPI I Saw..You Saw..We Saw...Warsaw, Milani
White On The Spot, Wet 'n Wild Black Creme, Sally Hansen Insta-Dry
Presto Pewter, and Julep Anisa.
One girl wanted simpler nails, but couldn't resist the blue and yellow, so she chose an accent nail. I used OPI I Saw..You Saw..We Saw...Warsaw, and Zoya Pippa for this mani.
This young lady was having engagement photos taken the next day, so she wanted something simpler. I was going to do some nail art, but unfortunately, I ran out of time. I love the subtle shimmer on these! I used Finger Paints Silver Sculpture and OPI Next Stop...The Bikini Zone.
My friend, Carolyn, took soooo looong to decide, we had to do a quick mani. This is my idea of a faux gradient, and then I gave her little hearts as accents. I used Milani White On The Spot, China Glaze Elfin' Around and China Glaze Just Be-Claws.
I had such a good time at the party, and it was so much fun to give these girls fun and unique manis. It's very different painting someone else's nails after you've been so used to only painting your own! I made such a mess - thank goodness I remembered to bring my cleanup brush!
Do you like doing other people's nails, or having yours done by someone else?
