Miffy In The Paint

Hi there guys!! I have some incredibly awesome highlighters from my great aunt (the tip of the pen is a bear. I just can't) that have Miffy on them so I decided to do some Miffy nails. It was meant to be inspired by those highlighters but in the end I just did a Miffy design ("Miffy in the paint" is one of the quotes from the highlighter, clearly it was made in Asia haha).

Miffy is SO cute!! This is my favourite kind of nail art (cute cartoons) and I can never do enough. My favourite is the Miffy on my thumb with the daisy dress (I decided to put that extra detail in). The paintbrushes fit the design and the yellow bear is also adorable (I have no idea what it's name is, I looked it up and got nothing). I like all the colours too, and the subtle floral background (which wasn't originally going to be a floral background). Frankly I love that it's so childish, it's got a cute elementary thing going on with it. Nothing at all wrong with childish ;)

I was a Miffy fan when I was very young, my mother commented asking if I was into this again. But I didn't remember being into Miffy but then memory attack!! I watched Miffy and Friends when I was about 5 and that was a great show. Miffy's author is Dick Bruna and I think his simplistic style was perfect for this.
