Mouse Trap!

Posted on: May 21st, 2014 by shewhodoesnails  4 Comments

I am so excited to show you this manicure… I painted this a few nights ago and love how cute and random it is!

It’s also a little ironic, as I really really hate cheese. I do, however, love mice and rats, as I had nine pet rats a few years back!


I started by painting three nails with M&Buffalo 16, and the fourth finger with NYC Pinstripe White. Once they had dried, I used Sally Hansen Man-Go Team! to paint the big orange dots for the cheese, and Essie Very Structured for the brown shading.


For the mouse, I used No7 Grey Skies for his body, and Barry M Foil Effects Silver for the detailing of the eyes, nose, ears and tail!


I love how this manicure has turned out, and love that it is so comical! I hope it puts a smile on your face today :)

  1. That’s really really cute! The colours used are brilliant as well as the drawing of the mouse. I’m with you on the cheese though – I can’t stand it either…
