Here are the items that you will need for the art:

Base coat

Top coat

Blue nail polish

Yellow nail polish

White nail polish

Black nail polish

Dotting tool

Start With The Base

You want to start the design by applying the base coat on your nails. It’s the best way to protect the health of your nails. Once the base coat is on, you can paint the nails yellow. Right away you are going to start feeling like the minions are alive already. If you want thick coverage, try using 2-3 coats of paint.

 Create The Blue Line

You may want to paint the blue line on the tip of your nail. If you want something to remind you of what you need to do think of the French manicure and you can create a thicker line. It doesn’t need to be perfect as long as it’s not messy.

For the top portion of your nail, you want to draw two rectangular shapes on each side. It is thinner and shorter than the blue line you did. You should apply 2-3 coats of the black nail polish to bring about clarity to the design.

Creating The Eye

You can start to see your Minion take creation right before your eyes. The idea of the Minion design is starting to take form right before your eyes. You want to now add a circle using the gray nail polish in between the black lines that you created. This is going to be the base you will use for the eye of your Minion. Once applied, let it dry.

It’s Time For The Smile

When it comes to nail art, it’s all about the details. You want to be able to create a Minion design that has a lot of details. That’s how you are able to make the character come to life. You want to start with creating a smile and you will do this with black nail polish.

Use Details of the Eye

Your gray circle should be dry by now and you can work on a smaller circle on top of it. You will use white nail polish and once applied you will also wait until it dries. You are going to add the pupil on top of this. You can do that by using the smallest dotting tool you have and create a small circle in the middle.

Use The Top Coat

You are going to protect your beautiful Minion art by applying a colorless topcoat to your design. It will also allow your design to have a glossy finish which will make it stand out even more. Once you are done with the topcoat, you are officially done!

Nail brush designs became popular because it was a way to get the nail art you wanted without waiting for your nails to dry. Nail designs are cool as you can see my the Minion designs, you are dying to get some for yourself. The one downside to getting traditional art is that you have to wait for the polish to dry before the design can be placed on it. If you went to a salon, you could wait up to an hour for your polish to dry before a nail artist would apply your design but that wasn’t the case after nail brush designs came around. It solved the need for creative designs without having to wait for the nail polish design.

Some Simple Tips For Healthy Nails:

When it comes to nails, you want them to be healthy so that your Minion design will always look good. There are easy ways that you can keep your nails as healthy as possible.

  1. Keep Your nails clean and dry
  2. When you trim your nails, cut the nails straight across. You can use clippers or nail scissors. The best thing that you can do is round out the nails slightly to keep the tips at maximum strength.
  3. Keep nails free of snags by using an emery board.
  4. If you are a nail biter you want to stop biting them and refrain from removing the cuticle as that is used to protect your nails as well. You can also cause damage by doing these things.
  5. Don’t use your nails to open things even if you want to open a pop can.
  6. Trim your nails regularly, if you keep them short you can minimize the risk of injury or trauma to them.
