Nemo and Dory

I painted these in May of 2016…so I should probably actually post them. I just wanted to wait until I had enough disney-themed manis to post them all in a week! Whoops.


This mani was inspired by Finding Nemo. Yes, these are super-stylized, yes I still think it’s cool!


I got the idea from Klo’s to me, although she used much brighter aqua for her underwater…I wish I had a similar blue but I just don’t! So mine is more of a teal-based blue. Either way, I loved her idea for the surf!


~ Light teal: Maybelline – Green with Envy
~ Teal: Zoya – Wednesday
~ Light blue: Zoya – Rocky
~ Blue: Zoya – Yummy
~ Dark blue: Zoya – Ling
~ Dory blue: Sinful Colors – Endless Blue
~ Yellow: WOW – #301
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Orange: Zoya – Thandie


That’s all for today! Any other Disney or Pixar movies I should work on painting (I mean, and hopefully posting less than a year after they were initially painted)?

Kawaii Cones

Rainbow day is usually my favorite day in the challenge…but this year nothing came to mind! I don’t know why. I did however find these in my recently-done-but-not-posted-yet folder, and since they are basically a pastel rainbow AND adorable I figured it worked!


It also helps that it is still summer (for a few days) so its totally ok to post ice cream cones 😀


The nail art was inspired by jamylyn_nails even though I have trouble with faces, still! I think its adorable.


I did a matte and a glossy version of these but I liked the matte version far better, so that’s what you are seeing! Mostly because shiny ice cream cones were very confusing to me.


Hope you enjoyed! I think I’ve only painted a few new nail arts for this challenge so far, most of these are from the ‘vault’. However, tomorrows is a new one at least!


It has been a while since I’ve done a 100% cute mani, so I thought it was time! Thus, I present tiny adorable whales 😀


This mani was inspired by dry dammit. I even matted it, as I like the result matted! There is one pre-matte photo in the post, just so you guys can see how shiny the blue was before I made it un-shiny.


Maybe I should at some point try painting my beta fish. Then again, he is a ridiculous concoction of mermaid/peacock colors with a giant spiky tail…so maybe not.


~ Blue metallic: Zoya – Estelle
~ Teal shimmer: Julie G – Mermaid’s Tale
~ Grey: Maybelline – Bare Escape
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black


Hope you enjoyed!

Wintery Animals and Santa

This might be the cutest mani I have done on someone else. Ever. Bri wins the award for best cute faces! Everything here was something she found online (pinterest is awesome) and showed me so I could duplicate it. I think adding the headphones to the penguin was my only real contribution!


So, say hello to a snowman, Rudolph, a polar bear, the cutest penguin ever, and the fox!


I think I need to make my own cuddly penguin next winter. Ugh. Melt!


The second mani was made by my friend Trish on her own nails, but using my polish! Trish has skills 🙂


She put together little Santas compete with fuzzy beards!


Just some cute simple baby pigs today! The last time I did pig nails was September of 2014 (woah), and these a pretty different!


My old lightest pink polish dried up (it was 70% empty anyway) so I went to get another…and they seem to have changed the formula! The polish used to take two thick or three thin coats to cover…and this was FOUR (two thin and two thick when it was clear thin coats did nothing) and I am rather pissed about that! So, that is why my nails look somewhat…thicker…than normal.


~ Light pink: NYC – Prospect Park Bloom
~ Medium pink: Wet n’ Wild – Tickled Pink
~ Dark pink: Sinful Colors – Pink Forever
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White


Also, the Rite Aid near my house has officially stopped carrying the NYC line of polish. Which is really rather depressing since I use their top coat! I was at Target a week ago (stocking up on stuff I thought I might need for the new apartment!) and luckily managed to grab 5 backup bottles of top coat. I have no idea what I am going to do when I run out…this stuff is <$2 and works fine, I refuse to buy a more expensive top coat!


Cute art time! I have been meaning to make cows for a while. My initial intent was just spots with a cow face as an accent nail, but this post by imichelley convinced me otherwise!


The accent nail is supposed to be a sultry she-cow…but it just looks evil. Apparently I can’t do cow eyeliner? That makes some sense…I can’d do human eyeliner either! (No, really. Don’t ask, I’ve almost poked my eyeball out more than once).



  • White: Zoya – Purity
  • Pink: Sinful Colors – Pink Forever
  • Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black


My only word of advice if you want to try this, try to keep the pink layers thin! The polish was not completely dry even after a few hours and it wrinkled when I showered because it was so thick. Sad!
