Disney Crafts: Mickey Toes

I'm going to preface this post by saying that I'm really not a big fan of feet...they kind of gross me out! So sharing a picture of my feet on my blog is kind of a big deal, but this was such a fun thing to do for Disney that I decided to share it with you:)
**************
To start your Mickey Toes, you need a base coat of bright red.
Then you need to gather your supplies: black nail polish, contact paper, and a hole punch or two.
 Using your hole punch, punch three circles in the shape of a Mickey Mouse head into your contact paper. I ended up using a standard hole punch for the head and a smaller punch for the ears. You can make it work with the standard punch too it will just take some practice. {The top one is done using only the standard hole punch and the two bottom ones I used the smaller punch for the ears.}
 After you've got the perfect Mickey, peel off the back of the contact paper and stick it on your big toe. You can face the Mickey head towards you or away, but I figured I would be looking at it more so I faced it so I could see it:) Press down all around the shape to make sure it is sealed good and no polish will run under the edge.
 Paint a coat of black polish over the cut out Mickey and allow it to dry. You can do more than one coat, but with black you really only need one coat to cover really well.
 Now your toes are ready to head to Disney and visit Mickey Mouse:)

Pin It!

What a cute idea! I never thought of making my own nail stencils before I always try to freehand everything. Definitely going to do this for my next pedicure. I just found your blog and I am loving it! I am your newest follower.
