1. Simple start
If drawing a minion seems complicated at first, we recommend going with this simple option. White, blue and yellow are the minion colors, so you can use them to paint most of your nails. Then use just one Minion sticker and voila!
2. Color combination
Doing minion color combination is much easier than drawing actual minions on your fingers. Make some nails blue, some yellow and focus on creating a solid minion on just one nail. It will be enough for a cool look.
3. Eye stickers
What’s the most important part of the minion? Who knows. But the largest one is the eye. By getting eye-stickers you’ll do two-thirds of the minion-drawing job. The rest is just simple blue and black lines on white and yellow base.
4. Pink minions
Who said Minions have to be yellow and blue? Girlish pink minion nails have just as many existence rights. Pink little guys are even easier to create. You can add some fun white hearts to the tips of your nails.

5. Wild Minions
If you are doubting your drawing skills, consider going for wild minions. Use any color for the base and then work with white and black to create the outline of the minions. Going for crazy and wild faces will help cover up any drawing mistakes you might make.
6. French minions
Minion nails will look great if you make them French. Consider making the base yellow and the tips blue. Draw the faces closer to the base of your nails, so when you show your art to someone, the minions won’t look upside down.
7. Minion faces
When drawing a minion on your nail, you don’t have to go for the whole body. Opt for just the faces to make your job less complicated. You will need only two or three colors to do the job and it will take less time.
8. Blue nails
Minion nails are a great excuse to finally make a blue manicure. Paint your nails the blue shade you always wanted and draw a minion on just one of them. The overall combination will look perfect even with a sticker.
9. Combination stickers
If you want your minion nails to look especially fabulous, go for combination stickers. One sticker can be a continuation of the other, so when you hold all your fingers together, you see the full picture. The base for such stickers should be any color besides blue and yellow.
10. DIY minions
If you are just learning how to draw on your nails, consider this simple minion drawing. You can see that most lines are easy to make separately. Start with the base and go upwards. You can always start over if you make a mistake.
11. Girlish nails with a minion
Minion nails don’t necessarily mean blue-yellow-white mix all over your nails. You can have your favorite pink girlish nails and add just one small minion sticker. The effect such manicure makes can be even bigger than full-time minion nails.
12. Lines and stripes
There is nothing too complicated about drawing a minion. There are many “lazy” options such as this one. A couple of eyes and two black lines are all it takes to create a fun minion guy. You can add different art to the rest of the nails.
12. Square minions
Nails with minions on them look especially well because of their shape. Never thought that minions will remind you of nails? Thankfully, even a square nail shape will look good with a minion as long as the face is closer to the base.
13. Polka dot nails
Dots look as very creative minion neighbors. It will be enough to paint just one or two minions on any of the 5 nails and then make the rest yellow with random blue dots on them.
13. Light colors
Usually, people tend to use very rich colors when doing their minion nails. It is absolutely unnecessary, especially if you are not a fan of bright attire. Consider using light blue and yellow shades for your next minion French.
14. Anime minions
When you are drawing minions, you can let your imagination run really wild. They don’t have to look exactly as they did on the screen. Consider making them absolutely different just as long as the eyes and the blue pants are there.
15. Other characters
Want your minion nails to make a great impression? Consider drawing an extra character on your nails. It will look really interesting and surely unexpected among blue and yellow little guys.
16. Minion tips
This variation of French minion manicure is a great idea for girls who don’t want their nails to be too bright. Make just the tips blue and yellow and opt for one simple minion sticker or drawing.
17. Baby minions
If you have very short nails, there is no reason to overlook the minion nail art. You might have a harder time drawing smaller faces and bodies but in the end, you will get very cute baby minions sitting on your nails.
18. Simple and yellow
Since yellow is one of the main minion colors, you can use a simple yellow base for most of your nails. Then you can go all out with the couple of them that have drawings. Consider making glittery blue tips.
