Moustache Mani Monday!

In support of men's prostate health during the month of November, and inspired by the below video created by CutePolish, I give you my take on the moustache mani!

It took several attempts to find a base color I was happy with. I first tried L'Oreal's Innocence, but no matter what I did, it came out streaked, even after 4 coats. So then I thought about what we tell people that come into the paint department at work about primers. I took off the Innocence and reapplied my base coat and then went to China Glaze Pelican Gray. After 2 coats I then applied 2 coats of WnW Megalast that I'd picked up at Big Lots in a 2 bottle package. There's no color name on the bottle, or color number, but it's a sort of medium flesh color with little bit of a pearl finish. Finally! It's the color I was after!!! Then on to the star of the show, the facial hair!

You'll notice I didn't stick with one type of moustache, that's because there are just so many great options out there if you're a guy and want to 'stache it up.

The thumb makes me think of the dastardly villain in the old silent movies, the index finger is of course the full beard and moustache, middle finger I went with a "Charlie Chan" style, the ring finger is a Fu Manchu style, then for the pinkie I went with a soul patch.

Go over to The TraceFace Philes and take a look at her Moustache Mani Monday entry. This has been so much fun, and it's already give me ideas for another mani. Hope you all enjoyed this as much as I have. Please let me know what you think. Constructive criticism is always welcome!

There's another reason I loved doing this mani. Halloween is my favorite holiday, and this year my girlfriends and I were able to spend it together. This was awesome since two of the girls live out-of-state and we don't get to see one another very often. For me Halloween is a reason to dress-up and become someone or something else. I love it! Not everyone gets into it at the same level I do. lol So they came up with their own alter ego's if you will. I give you "The Girls Who Dare to Wear facial Hair"!


  1. This looks great!! I especially love the goatee!!

  2. Thanks :D I really had a big laugh doing this one. It was a lot of fun. I think we should all do a Thanksgiving themed mani. It's interesting to see people's interpretations!
