Movember Nails

It's no surprise, after reading the title, I have moustache nails for you!

You're all familiar with the whole Movember thing, right? I must admit I did these mainly because I like moustaches on nails and I saw a perfect opportunity.

Polishes I used:
Rimmel 800 Black Out
Gabriella Salvete 148 (white)
Gabriella Salvete 04 Mistero Grey (texture metallic)
NYC Turbo Dry top coat

How to:
This was the second time I draw moustaches on my nails and it was strangely more difficult this time, so I decided to use homemade decals (also used and described here), I painted piece of foil with top coat, I draw several moustaches on that layer, let it dry, top coated it again, then I chose two moustaches I liked the best, cut them out, peeled it off the foil and pushed it on the nails. I used black gel pen to draw the moustaches and I finished the fine curls with tiny brush and acrylic paint, because it's easier to make round shapes with gel pen but you can't get lines thin enough. Then I sealed it with top coat.

I also made a keep-calm-poster-thing (see the first one I made here), what do you say?

I've been taking a lot of photos because I wanted to show you the gel pen and that I first draw some moustaches on paper and all this.

And yeah, it did feel quite awkward taking photos of my non-dominant hand holding a pen. (above)

That's it! How do you like my take on moustache nails?
I'm so looking forward to see what others will come up with for this occasion.
