Pikachu Nails


Are you guys all familiar with this little character? It's pikachu! Of course, as a 90's kid, Pokemon was an integral part of my childhood. I mean, I was nuts about it! (But who wasn't?) I played the games, woke up in the morning to watch new episodes, collected and played the trading cards... etc! So while cleaning up an old drawer in my room, I saw a few Pokemon things and decided I should do a Pokemon manicure. And of course... I had to dedicate to the most popular and famous one of all... Pikachu!

The colors I used for this manicure were: China Glaze - Happy Go Lucky, OPI - Big Apple Red, and China Glaze - Liquid Leather. If any of you guys are interested... I made a short tutorial to achieve these same nails! It's pretty simple. Click the image for the full version. ^^

So what do you guys think? Do you like pikachu or Pokemon too? I hope you enjoyed this manicure. (: Also... if you also do these nails, please share the results! I'd looove to see.

  9. omfg that is soooo cute I can just faint *.*

    I am so terrible at drawing any sort of animals on my nails T_T you are so great with drawing pictures with a brush, like your icecream nails!!

    If I were to do it, I would use two red rhinestones and put it on Pikachu's cheeks for one of the nails (or black ones for eyes on the other hand) or something like that =p

    it's awesome!! love it. I wish you can do my nails for me!!

  10. @ frostedsnow - Sharon, that is a great idea! Rhinestones would be an awesome touch. :P And I'm glad you like it! I would do your nails for you if I could too~ I am often bored~ >W<;
