Embrace Your Geekness Nail Art Challenge: Cartoon Characters

Good morning lovelies! I hope you’re ready for a beautiful Sunday! This morning I have off-beat cartoon characters for my nail art; does anyone remember Humphrey the Bear and the Humphrey Hop? Here’s a refresher if you don’t: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y75sOGHdrxQ I loved these Disney shorts when I was a kid, I couldn’t get enough of them. đŸ™‚ So I decided to do Ranger J. Audobon Woodlore and Humphrey, with litter sticks.

Then I’ve used Milani Cupid’s Touch and Almond Bliss, Jessica Sharktooth, OPI My Vampire is Buff and Jade is the New Black, Sinful Colors Coffee, Black on Black, Snow Me White, and Graine de Poivre.

Embrace Your Geekness Nail Art Challenge: Superheroes

2014 favorite button | Be Happy And Buy PolishGood morning! I hope your weekend is off to the right start so far. Today I have superheroes nail art for you, in the form of the Lego Movie superheroes! I have to admit that I’m not really into superheroes but after talking with my friend Kate, I struck upon the idea of doing the characters from the Lego Movie.

I started off with a base of Sinful Colors Pull Over on three nails and Skylark on my ring finger. Then using Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Black on Black, Coffee, Cha Cha Red, Burning Bright, and Pur Rouge, I created Emmet, Wyldstyle, Batman, and Good Cop.

Batman, as voiced by Will Arnett, really is my favorite character of this whole movie. I laughed so hard during his lines!

Embrace Your Geekness Nail Art Challenge: Video Games

Hi! If you’re here through StumbleUpon, please check out my Doctor Who Nails, my Lego Movie nails, and my Humphrey Hop nail art. Don’t forget to follow me if you like what you see!

Good morning! Late morning today for me – I meant to get up at around 6 to get some swatching and photo editing done when it is cooler, but….I sort of slept in. :/ LOL.

Let’s get to today’s prompt of video games! My first video game that I remember playing was Duck Hunt. It was fun, at first, then came the frustration and that stupid dog laughing at me because I missed the duck. So, Duck Hunt it is for my nails!

Embrace Your Geekness Nail Art Challenge: Fandoms

2014 favorite button | Be Happy And Buy PolishGood morning everyone! It’s been so hectic around here, I hadn’t had a chance to tell you about the nail art challenge that’s starting today: Embrace Your Geekness. See, July 13 is Embrace Your Geekness Day and I thought, well, why not have a nail art challenge around that? So the first prompt is “fandoms” and I’ve chosen….Doctor Who!

Though I love all the Doctors I’ve met, my first love is Number 9. He’s just so dark, and almost grim, but then he laughs and says “Fantastic” and you’re just off and away with him! Obviously, I had to narrow down what I would do for nail art (yikes, how hard is that with all the Doctor Who stuff?!) and finally settled on my favorite episode (err, episodes since it’s a two-parter): The Empty Child, and the Doctor Dances.

I’ll be honest, when I first watched this episode, it freaked me out. Creepy children, talking dolls, and clowns will scare me, every flipping time (please use this information for good, and not evil, kthnxbai). So the fact that this episode had a creepy child that looked/talked like a doll? Yeah, I’ll just be over here having a nightmare, thanks. LOL. Okay, onto the nail art!

So I’ve done a representation of Number 9 on my pointer finger, a TARDIS (naturally), a gas mask, and a banana (because they’re a good source of potassium đŸ˜‰ ).

I hope you enjoyed my rendition for fandoms, so let’s take a look at everyone else’s:

Tomorrow’s prompt for this challenge is video games and I’ll still have the OMD2 Nail Art prompt for you later today, so until then…

For the Doctor, I was inspired by this poster. For the banana, I used a still photo from elleandish. For the TARDIS, I did use this post by Polish Art Addict to help me out.
