So I’ve fallen into another little blogging slump lately because I’m a bridesmaid in THREE weddings this summer! That means pretty much all of my weekends are booked for the next couple months, which is when I normally get most of my posts written. So bear with me as I try to get into a new routine.
In the meantime, check out my Jungle Book nail art tutorial that I did at work for Disney Style! I’m pretty much obsessed with the tropical palm leaf trend, so I never wanted to take this manicure off!
I’m not sure how many of you know, but I started my absolute dream job doing social media for Disney Style, Disney’s official lifestyle blog. I get to spend my days on Facebook and Instagram, writing about Winnie the Pooh accessories and nail polish inspired by the Princesses. So of course, Disney nail art comes with the territory.
This week, I had the opportunity to help out with a brand new nail art tutorial inspired by one of the biggest movies in theaters right now – Zootopia! Check out the tutorial I filmed for Disney Style, and make sure you follow along/subscribe for even more super fun Disney lifestyle and fashion goodies!
I hope you enjoyed this Zootopia nail art tutorial! Happy Reading!
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!
