Movember Manicure

If you’re like me, you’ve only got to take a look round your office at the sprouting facial bushes to realise that something funny is going on. That funny that is going on is Movember when gentlemen round the world get sponsored to cultivate some face furniture to raise money for The Prostate Cancer Charity and the Institute of Cancer Research.

But why do the gents get all the fun? When I stumbled across this video by Cute Polish I knew I wanted to sport a moustache mani for the rest of the month.

Looks simple hey? I have the nail art skills of a one armed arthritic squirrel so if I can do it then anyone can. Not having a dotting tool like the lady in the video I had to improvise so I ended up using the head of my poppy pin and a cuticle stick with the end flattened a bit.

First I used the pinhead to do the big dots...
Then I used the cuticle stick to do smaller black dots

Then my friend lovely Laura did some nail extensions for me in order to practice her skills so I had to start again with the dots but then….

Then I redid the dots on my new nails and using the cuticle tool I sort of smeared the polish into tiny 'taches!

I think it looks cute and it’s sooooo easy to do. A couple of the girls at work have asked me to do them a mo’ nail so of course I’ve agreed, for a donation!
