Tutorial: Miffy

Hello everyone! Welcome to my Miffy tutorial. :) This design was dedicated to a friend, but aside from that I've always loved this Dick Bruna character as I grew up with it. So having it on my nails at age 22 doesn't only look cute but also brings up childhood memories haha. ^^  Miffy isn't too difficult to recreate, all you need is a few basic colors and a little patience. ;-) You can use regular nail polish to draw her, but I prefer acrylic paint in this case, because it's more opaque and doesn't dry too quick so it's easier to work with. Let's give it a go, shall we? :)

First apply your basecolor (with a basecoat underneath) and let it dry.
Then use your nail art brush and black acrylic paint to draw the contours of Miffy. Start with an oval for the head, then add two bunny ears and a part of the body.
Then use white to fill in the shape, leave a small gap of black for the outlines of the drawing.
Give Miffy a top by filling in the part below her head with orange. Because you've applied white beneath it first, the orange will really pop.
Finally complete Miffy's face with two tiny eyes, her cross-shaped mouth and a black line between her head and body.
The surface is still quite bumpy, so finish with a coat or two of topcoat once everything's dry. Your design is now smooth and protected. :)

Tip: To clean your nail art brush(es), pour a little bit of nail polish remover in a small dish or the lid of the bottle. Let your brush soak in it for a few seconds and dab it a few times on a cotton pad. Repeat this until your brush is clean.

I would absolutely love to see your attempt on my design, so feel free to leave a link to your creation in the comment section!

The polish I used in this post is OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui.
