When you wish upon a star...Mickey & Minnie Mouse nail art

Hey guys! I have been wanting to do "Disney" nails for a while! With the WDW marathon happening this weekend, now was my chance! I'm not running in it but I wish I was  :(
 I prefer symbolic references to characters over actual faces, you will see that a lot in my work! I also, after much deliberation, decided to add some small Mickey ears.

Here are the polishes I used: from L: OPI Thrill of Brazil (my new favorite red! This will be my go to from now on! It is a one-coater for me!), China Glaze Angel Wings, Sally hanson white and black, Zoya Storm, and for the star I fished out one from the Revlon Celestial FX. It's good to have on hand! It has holographic stars, crescent moons and diamond shapes. 

Method on this was pretty simple...polka dots and glitter! For the Mickey nail I painted the whole nail red and topped with Seche vite. After a few hours I went back and taped the bottom and painted over black. Add some dots and presto! For my "When You Wish Upon a Star" nail I used Zoya Storm for the night sky and added a star! 
The Tinkerbell and Princess races are coming up to look for more Disney nail art! I'm planning on doing 5 princess during the week leading up to the Princess Half Marathon. Which ones should I do?
