My bf and I went to Disneyland yesterday so I decided to do some Disney nails! :) This my first attempt at putting together a photo tutorial.  Let me know what you think and if you find it helpful!
Step 1: Prep your nails and paint
For me this entails removing old polish, filing my nails to the right shape, using Essie’s Disappearing Trick to help remove my cuticles, and applying a base coat.  Then I applied 2-3 coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure’s All Fired Up (red) and Zoya’s Pippa (yellow).
Step 2: Begin your design
Thumb - Draw a vertical line (that will be the edge of the D) with a white nail art pen/brush.  It helps to look at the Disney logo.
Index - Use a white nail art pen/brush to make a glove.  It doesn’t have to be perfect since you will be using black to outline it in the next step.
Middle - Use a dotting tool or nail art pen to make white polka dots.  I started by making a vertical line of 4 dots down the center of my nail and then adding columns of alternating dots on both sides (twice).
Ring - Use a dotting tool to make a large circle with black polish.
Pinky - Cover the bottom 1/3-1/2 with black polish (sorry for the mess, I need to buy a new bottle!)
Step 3: Add the finishing touches
Thumb - Complete the D with a white nail art pen/brush.  I also added a little heart in the corner (it’s not really visible), by making a “V” shape with a white nail art pen/brush. 
Index - Use a black nail art pen/brush to outline the glove and the fingers.  Add a line across the bottom for the “wrist” and then two lines on the “palm.”
Middle - Already done! I was contemplating adding a black bow since this is supposed to be Minnie’s dress, so you could easily add this with a black nail art pen/brush.
Ring - Use a dotting tool to make 2 smaller black dots on top of the larger dot you made above.
Pinky - Use a white nail art pen/brush to draw 2 lines in the middle of the red portion of your nail.
Finally, I added a topcoat (I like Seche Vite) and used Essie’s Quick-E drying drops to set my design.  All finished!
I hope this tutorial was at least a little helpful.  I’ll be trying to do more in the future and maybe a video?  We’ll see. :)
