F is for Flip the Moustachioed Bird: A Movember Mani with Mariah Carey by OPI

My sister has a reason to flip the bird. The moustachioed bird. For Movember. Take a look.

This is my sister's Movember mani, in support of our family's male-folk, friends, and her crew at The Rebel House in mid-town Toronto. She's wearing a gunmetal grey soak-off gel colour as a base with OPI Get Your Number liquid sand nail polish from the Mariah Carey by OPI Collection (hitting retailers and salons in January, 2013).

Karen is right-handed, so props for the craft-paint moustache she executed via her left hand. The ’stache is protected with a clear topcoat, but it will wear off -- without disturbing the gel-mani shine.


Curious: better photo in black and white?

Sister isn't the first to do a Movember mani in support of the charity that raises awareness and funds for men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and more. This 2011 video tutorial by CutePolish is the gold-standard of moustache-mani how-tos.

Need something for making dots? Make a fab dotting tool in minutes like this.


Or pop out to get the Quo by Orly Instant Artist Kit, which consists of a dual-ended dotting tool and a fine-tipped brush for bitsy little detail work ($15, Shoppers Drug Mart).

And go on, flip the bird.
