Mouse and Cheese Nail Art Tutorial (For Short Nails)

Hey everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve done a nail art tutorial so I put together a quick and easy mouse and cheese nail art for people with short nails, I hope that you enjoy this post.

You Will Need:
A Basecoat and Topcoat of your choice
A Yellow Nail Polish
A Pale Pink Nail Polish
A white nail art pen or thin tipped white polish
A Black nail art pen, liquid liner or thin tipped black polish.

Step One – Paint fingernails yellow and thumbnails pink
step one
Once you have applied your basecoat of choice paint your fingernails yellow and your thumnail pink. I’ve used a pale pink nail polish by Primark on my thumbnail and on my fingernails I’ve used Maybelline’s Colour Show Nail Polish in Electric Yellow.

Step Two – Add different sized dots on your yellow nails to create the cheese
step two
To create the look of swiss cheese take your black liquid liner/polish/nail art pen and add different sized dots on your yellow nails. This gives the impression of swiss cheese.

Step Three – Create white pawprints on your thumbnails
step three
On the thumbnails if you have long nails you can create a mouse but I have pretty short nails so for those with short nails take your white nail art pen or thin tipped polish and create one large polka dot with three smaller dots above it to give the impression of paw prints.

Step Four – Apply topcoat and allow to dry
step four
Once all of your polish is dry apply your topcoat to seal the design in place and to add a glossy finish. I’ve used the Seche Vite Top Coat but you can use whichever topcoat you prefer.
