“Originality to me just means breaking all the rules,” says Anna Ross, founder of eco-friendly nail-polish company Kester Black. “Don’t follow whatever anyone else is doing.”

To celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th, we asked some of our favourite creators to reflect on Mickey’s relevance and craft a unique item inspired by the character. Ross responded with five different nail-polish colours inspired by the iconic mouse, sourced from the character’s original Pantone codes.

As well as a personal link to Mickey Mouse, Ross found inspiration in the mouse’s outsized stature. “[Mickey] proves that no matter how little you are you can do big things.”

In the video below, watch Ross discuss the nature of originality and demonstrate her unique creation.
