New31DC: Day 25 - Inspired by Your Childhood


Hey guys!  Today's theme for the New31DC is Inspired by Your Childhood.  I chose to recreate some characters from one of my favorite cartoons.


The Snorks!  Did any other 80's babies watch this show?  I used to wake up early from my naps as a kid to go ask my Mom if I had missed it!


My base color for this was 2 coats of OPI Ogre the Top Blue, and then the characters were done mostly with acrylic paint.  I did have to use a bit of polish because I don't have a magenta or a pink acrylic, and I couldn't get the right colors from mixing.  For Occy the octopus I used OPI Miami Beet.  For Casey Kelp, the light pink girl, I used China Glaze Dance Baby.  And for Daffney Gillfin, the darker pink girl, I used a mix of Miami Beet and Dance Baby.

This is my first time attempting to recreate characters or anything like this on my nails, and I am pretty happy with how I did!  They aren't perfect, but I will keep trying and hopefully my skills will improve.



What was your favorite cartoon as a kid?

    The show was on when I was a little bit too old for it and I never really liked it until I was really old enough to appreciate nostalgia. But your characters are simply adorable and I love this mani so much!!!
