Her classic polka dot look has been continually reimagined by the fashion industry through the decades and continues to drive trends today. – Soo Koo, Disney Consumer Products VP Product Development
Minnie Mouse is totally classic. From her bloomers and polka dot dress to her sweet pillbox hat, she has looked fabulous for the past eighty years! In honor of National Polka Dot Day, an event will be held in Downtown LA, featuring products and fashion inspired by this adorable mouse.
I decided to get in on the fun, and show off how I #RocktheDots!
I grabbed a couple classic Minnie Mouse colors to get started – white, black, red and pink. In true Novels and Nail Polish fashion, I designed a fun multi-mani with stripes, polka dots and scalloped accents. My trusty dotting tool was perfect for the polka dots, and I created the scallops by paining thick, vertical lines at varying heights and rounding off the top with a detail brush.
Quick tip – when painting a dotticure with multiple colors, test out the order on a piece of paper so you know what color pattern you want for the final product!
