Today’s post features:
OPI Alpine Snow
Essie Mojito Madness
Nails Inc. Paddington
Seche Vite – Top Coat
I also used a couple of dotting tools from this set.

This post is obviously inspired by the 1-Up Mushroom from the Super Mario Series.

I have this Mushroom shirt. 🙂

I had been wanting to do this for a while and had gotten my inspiration from this pin.

First, I sketched it out.

It took me the longest time to find the correct green for it. Otherwise I would have done this sooner.

Here’s my lineup:

You’ll need a paper plate, cotton pads, dotting tools, and of course the nail polishes.

First I painted two coats of the Alpine Snow on the finger that I wanted my mushroom on.

Then I painted the other nails with the Mojito Maddness. This polish is really thick. (Essie polishes usually are.) I only needed one coat.

After some drying time, I used scotch tape on my accent finger. I don’t have a picture because I had to move quickly.
Tip: when using scotch tape on your nails, stick it to your palm a few times so that it’s not as sticky. It can still rip your polish off if you don’t.

Next I put some Alpine Snow on a paper plate.

Then I added my dots with a couple of different sized dotting tools.

Then I did the same on the plate with the Nails Inc. Paddington and added the mushroom’s eyes. (No picture, sorry.) I then finished it off with my Seche Vite top coat.

Here’s another view.

For my right hand, I just used the Mojito Madness and put on the Alpine Snow dots.

That’s all there is to it. All-in-all, this took me about 30-40 minutes. You have to move fast!

That’s all for now.
