M&M's Characters Nails

I'm part of a Facebook group called Polish-aholics Anonymous.  Each week they have a Monday Challenge and this week it was Candy-Inspired.

So I did these little guys......

They're the M&M Characters!!!!

I had a BLAST researching the little nuances of each character - they're eye shape, eyebrow position, mouth expressions.  Orange is always panicky, Blue is the cool dude, Red is usually mad at something stupid Yellow did, Yellow is usually clueless and goofy, and then there's GREEN, the sexy and smart lady of the group!  I JUST LOVE how these turned out!  They may very well be my all-time favorites!!!

I started each nail with Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base and Top Coat.
Orange - first coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed, then a single coat of Pure Ice Hot Tamale on top of that
Blue - two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue It
Red - first coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Cherry Red with Pure Ice Crimson on top
Yellow - one coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow with Pure Ice Excuse Me on top
Green - two coats of Crayola Green Apple (scented!!)
Then I put a coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri on just the colors.
To make the faces, I used Cover Girl White on White, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Black Out, Kiss Nail Art Pain striping brush in black and a little Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Emerald City for Green's lips.

Did I Mention I LOVE THESE!!!  Hope you enjoy them, too!!!


  1. These are my favorites so far! Next time you come home to do nails, can I have the M&M nails?

  2. Idk why I didn't see this on PAA, but these are so awesome!
