Minnie Mouse Inspired - China Glaze 'Hey Sailor'

One of the ladies at my workplace is now interested in what design I will have on my nails for the week. She requested a Minnie Mouse inspired look after seeing some designs online.

This is my interpretation that I wore last week. Since I didn't have a specific plate I have used bows, hearts and of course a red and white theme to recreate Minnie!

I have used:
Basecoat - Seche Clear
Colour on ring and thumb - two coats of China Glaze 'White Out'
Colour on remaining fingers - two coats of China Glaze 'Hey Sailor'
Top coat - Seche Vite
Stamping - Konad Special Stamping Polish in red and white
Plates - m59 and m79
Rhinestones in silver and orange

I like this look but I wish I had Disney themed plates to use, I think I could have made it really cute. They are now on order though (hope they arrive soon)! I think I will have to come back and re-visit this manicure at a later date and do a "Time Warp" post.

Also, I am well aware of how bad the white polish looks on my nails. I am still trying to figure out this "clean-up" business around my cuticles. It was especially frustrating with 'White Out' as I could tell where I hadn't fully covered the nail and the polish didn't smooth out like usual. Something to be aware of for next time.

I think sometimes I may be too fussy, as most people tend to comment on how nice my nails are, rather than the mistakes I can clearly see. Does anyone else experience the same thing?

Happy polishing!


  1. Love the heart, colours and the bow on your thumb! The thumb reminds me of sailor moon!

    1. I may have to do a Sailor Moon inspired manicure in the future :)


I would love to know what you think! Leave me a comment below :)
