I might be
just a little addicted to this Minion nail art. The Minion characters from Despicable Me were the best part of that movie and in honor of the Rise of Gru coming out this week… I just wanted an excuse to paint a Minion on my fingers.
After scrolling through
thousands of different designs and talented nail artists, these are my favorites and there’s a little bit of something for everyone. From the complex to the minimalist, this is a very flexible style and really lets you show off your fun side by playing around with these fantastic characters.
