I asked a guest poster to show us how we could get Super Mario Bros Toad Nail Art and she was up to the task! See below for a quick and easy way to get your nails to get the look. You can get this look without any special equipment although it will be a little easier if you have a black nail pen and dotting tool.

NOTE: Make sure you read through all of the steps twice before starting.
Start with a white polish. I only did the top half of my nails. Allow to dry well before next step. Length of drying time will depend on the type of nail polish and thickness used.
You will use tape to cover the white while you apply the red polish. Painter’s tape is best but you can also use scotch tape or masking tape. Before you use the tape, stick it to your pants and pull it off a few times to make it less sticky. Be careful, if your nails are not fully dry or your tape is too sticky, it might take some of the nail polish off.
Apply red nail polish. Choose the shade of red you have that most closely matches Red Toad. Make sure you apply the red up to and slightly over the tape. Remove the tape as soon as you finish applying the red, before moving onto the next finger. So apply red, peel tape, then move to next finger and repeat.
Allow red nail polish to dry. Use a dotting tool if you have one, or a pencil tip if you don’t to dip into a small amount of white polish placed on a paper or a plastic lid. Apply dots of white to red area, 3 per nail.
Use a black nail art pen or a toothpick and black nail polish to apply a thin line of black to make the eyes.
Finish with a clear coat or sealer to make the design last longer.
