Mani Monday: Toy Story nails

Today I'm going to show you how to do Toy Story nails. These were actually requested by my son as he saw me doing the Minions. He's three, and doesn't actually realise these are for nails. He thought I was just painting - we had fun drawing afterwards though :)

Step one: apply the base coats. Brown (for 'Andy'), yellow (for Woody), white (for Buzz), light blue (for the clouds) and dark blue (for the alien).

Step two: draw red vertical and horizontal lines onto the yellow. This will be the checkered shirt of Woody

Step three: draw green chest piece. This is going to be for Buzz. To do this just draw a block of green colour and miss out a small 'v' shape.

Step four: draw the clouds on top of the light blue base. (see how to draw clouds here)

Step five: write 'ANDY' onto the brown base. Remember to do this in capitals and to do the 'N' backwards as Andy did on the sole of Woody's boots.
Draw dots and lines on the chest of Buzz.

Step six: add detail to Buzz by drawing diagonal lines down from the chest piece. Add a black strip at the bottom as well.
Start on Woody's jacket by drawing the base of his jacket. I used the checkered lines to help with positioning.

Step seven: outline the aliens head and colour in green. This is done by drawing a half circle and then adding a line and a large dot on top.

Step eight: detail Woody by adding block splodges to his jacket to give the illusion of cow print. Then add two white dots to the middle of his chest. Draw a blue line at the bottom of him to represent his jeans.

Outline Woody's jacket and Buzz's check piece, as well as the Alien's head. Draw three large white dots on the alien and detail with three smaller black dots.

Then all you have to do is let it dry then add a clear top coat!

What do you think of this design? Would you try it yourself?
