Creative musings in bright colors


I love anime, but only some anime. My favorite anime artist is Hayao Miyazaki. He has made many movies, including my favorites (Howl’s Moving Castle and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind are my top two). Unfortunately, I have no idea how to do Howl or Nausicaa nail art, but I do know how to do My Neighbor Totoro nails! So, I have placed some of the major spirits from Totoro on my nails.


On my pinky are the dust spirits, ring finger has the big totoro, middle finger has the baby totoro, pointer has the middle totoro, and my thumb has the scary cat-bus! If you have never seen the movie this makes no sense, but it is an adorable movie and I recommend it!


So yes, I am a nerdy in more than one dimension. Anyway. The base for these nails was Sinful Colors – Mint Apple, which was just a dream to apply. All details were done with a thin nail art brush or an unbent hairpin.



  • Green: Sinful Colors – Mint Apple
  • Blue: Nail Art – Blue
  • Grey: NYC – Sidewalker
  • White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
  • Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
  • Copper: Zoya – Penny
  • Yellow: Revlon – Electric
  • Brown: Maybelline – Downtown Brown
  • Pink: Revlon – Poppy


Enjoy! And go watch some amazing anime πŸ™‚
