You probably aren't planning to grow a mustache in support of Movember, the month-long campaign that pushes men to grow mustaches to raise awareness for testicular and prostate cancers. But trying this tutorial and painting tiny barber-shop style 'staches on your fingertips will work, too.

Nail artist Carly Foy's mustache design was super inspiring, so nail artist Simcha Whitehill aka Miss Pop broke it down for us here.

1. Prep and paint. "After you've filed your nails into the desired shape, pushed back your cuticles" — remember, DO NOT CUT THEM! — "and applied a basecoat, paint your nails with a sheer pinkish-nude polish," says Whitehill. "But feel free to use any color that's complementary to your skin color." Here, the hand model used Deborah Lippmann's Nail Lacquer in Baby Love.

2. Make two large dots at the center of your nail. "Using the large end of a dotter tool, create two large dots in the center of your nail towards the tip," she says. Whitehill recommends using Essie Nail Polish in Licorice.

3. Create two tiny cirlces. "Take the smaller tip on the other end of the dotter tool — you can also use a toothpick's end — and create two super-small dots equidistant from the two larger dots in the center of your nail," she says. "It's so hard to draw perfect points of a mustache with your striper brush, so this small dot helps create a guide so that your mustache handles are even and precise."

4. Connect the dots. "With a striper brush, draw two arched lines from the larger dot to the smaller one to create the mustache's handles, and to give it that old time barber-shop feel," Whitehill adds. "Then fill in the two lines and you're done! Just allow a few minutes for the paint to dry and set before adding on a topcoat."

There! Consider your nails trés chic and totally on trend.
