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!

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)?

THE CLAW

Aka Toy Story nails! I know I can do better than this (my proportions are off) but they make me happy, so be it!

I got my inspiration from Trashedandlacquered, but I can’t find the original design! Oops. These are supposed to be the little green alien squeeze toys, but I made both their antennae and ears too big. Maybe I’ll try this again at some point (although I doubt it…) and do it better? I already went back and edited my nails after adding top coat. I really should have looked at a photo first!

Someday (soon?) I’ll do a Pixar and/or Disney nail art marathon. It’ll be great. Any requests? :-p

That’s all for today! Beware the Claw and make sure you always come in peace 😀

Monsters Inc

I wanted to re-watch Monsters Inc, and then I did this instead. Still works! This mani was inspired by pikapolish. What I have learned from this though is that fat monsters should not go on skinny nails!

IMG_5555

Mike looks a bit emaciated. Oops! I do LOVE the gradient though, and I am pretty proud of my thumb logo! I need to use the gradient again for a stamp or some such.

I’ve seen versions of this mani using blue flocking powder, and it looks really cool. Then again, washing hands while wearing flocking powder is a pain in the butt, and I think I’ve only worn my black one once. Maybe.

Hope you enjoyed! Less nerdy nails tomorrow :-p
