Up next for the amiibo manicure project is Sonic! The lovely folks at Sega sent me a Sonic manicure kit, so this seemed like a good time to try it! (Thanks Mallory!) The kit came with nail designs created by Badgirlnail.
This is a surprisingly simple manicure. The rings are made by using a dotting tool to create gold polka dots wherever you’d like. Give it a minute to dry and then use a smaller dotting tool in the background color to put a dot in the middle to give it a ring appearance.
For the shoe detail nail, you could use tape like the instructions show, but I prefer to freehand using a detail brush. Paint your background, let dry, paint the stripe, let dry and then add the buckle. When you’re done with everything, top it off with a coat of top coat and you’re good to go!
