“M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E! MICKEY MOUSE!” ….No, I am not going to give you the whole Mickey Mouse Club song, but I am going to show you how to do some cute mickey mouse nail art! Although, you know that song will be stuck in your head…you’re welcome.

I love my Mickey 3D!  You can paint him or find a decal, but  3D art is so unique!  You can easily turn him into Minnie by adding a 3D red bow (see my 3D bow tutorial).  

So here’s the nail art supplies that you will need:

  • Yellow, Blue and Black Acrylic
  • Clear or Pink Acrylic
  • Tiny acrylic art brush (I love Young Nails Imagination Art brush)
  • Regular size acrylic brush
  • Monomer
  • Gel Top Coat
  • File

Mickey Mouse Nail Art Steps

Step 1:  Prep the nail as usual and start with clean surface.

Step 2:  Place a regular size pearl of yellow on the nail to create the tip.

Step 3:  Carve in your smile line.

Step 4:  Using your tiny acrylic brush, place a small pearl of blue right above the yellow in the center.

Step 5:  Pat the blue out keeping the smile line.

Step 6:  Cap in clear acrylic, then file finish.

I will be demonstrating a small mickey on the tip and a large mickey on the whole nail.  First, I will show the small Mickey Mouse nail art.

Step 7:  Place a small pearl of black on the corner of the tip.

Step 8: Pat in out in a circle shape.  This creates the Mickey’s face.  Even though you are creating  3D art, you still want it to be thin.  So make sure you pat it out thin enough.

Step 9:  Place a tiny one off to the right to create an ear.  Pat it out the same.

Step 10:  Create the left ear.   Make sure when creating the ears that the circles are much smaller than the face.

So that is the small mickey.  For your crazier clients, make lots of tiny mickeys all on one nail.  I would only do this on the ring finger, possibly the thumb as well.

Now for the large Mickey Mouse Nail art!

Step 11:  Place a big pearl a little below the center of the nail.  Pat it out.

Step 12:  Now the ears.  When you place the ear down, don’t connect it with the face yet.  You want to place it close enough that when you pat it out it connects, but far enough away to look like mickeys ear.

Step 13:  Now do the left ear and pat them out.

Here is  a side profile so you can see how thin it is.  You only want it to be raised slightly to give the 3D effect.  If it’s too high and bulky it will catch and bug your client.

Step 14:  Now apply your gel top coat and you’re finished!
