Mani Monday: Disney Pixar UP!

Hello lovlies! This week I thought I'd try something a bit more fun rather than flowers all the time. This weeks is inspired by Disney Pixar's UP!
I love the story line, and the old man is just soooo cute! If you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you do.

Step One: Base colour and clouds. 
Okay to start off you want to have a base colour that is sort of like sky blue... because this design is based in the clouds. I didn't have a sky blue colour so I mixed a medium blue with a white before applying it to the nails.
I decided to add the clouds to the index finger and the pinky. To add the clouds I used a nail pen, but you could just used a tooth pick and some white nail varnish... it will take longer that way though.

Step Two: Colour the clouds
As the title suggests. 

Step Three: Outline the house
I drew the house on the thumb nail as it's a bigger canvas. I used a white to do the basic outline of the house. This doesn't have to be neat as you're going over it late, it's just to make sure that the colours of the house don't bleed into each other.

Step Four: Colour the house
I used different colours to decorate the house as I think it looks better. You can use any colours you like here, I just chose to stick with pastel colours. 

Step Five: Add coloured dots
Add coloured dots to the last two remaining finger nails. These dots will be the balloons so it's good to get a variety of colour in there. You can have as many or as little as you want.

Step Six: Outline the house, and draw ballon strings
Outline the house with black nail varnish. Again I used a nail art pen (these are available from eBay if you have a look around). Black will make the house stand out more - don't forget to put the door and the window in!
Add white lines coming out the top of the house, and the bottom of the balloons. I drew six coming out of the house, and then three on each of the balloon nails.

Step Seven: Add Effects
Add little white half smile type lines to the balloons. This will create a more 3D look

Step Eight: Add a top coat
Add a clear top coat to seal it all together. And there you have it! Nails inspired by UP!

What do you think of this design? Will you be trying it?
