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?
