This week's theme is "Cartoons" and it was Teo's idea. I chose a different approach for it and drew cartoon characters from a game that I play, Supercell's "Clash of Clans", instead of real cartoons/animation films, which I have presented on the blog here, a while ago.
Before I show you my nails, I wanna tell you why I chose some characters from the game, instead of one of my favorite Disney movies (yes, I'm one of those people) or from one of the many cartoons I used to watch as a child. The reason is that this little game, which I started playing because a friend needed clan members and I was bored and decided to help him, gave me the opportunity to meet a lot of funny people and I even played it with my boyfriend. I spent loads of hours ( I know, I know...) playing this game and making strategies for wars and attacks, and even though I don't play it as much anymore, I still talk to the people I met during almost a year of game-play, so it kinda means a lot to me.
Anyway, back to the nail-related stuff. Here is what I did for today:
On my nails I chose to represent four of the characters: Barbarian, Archer, Valkyrie and Giant.
I painted the nails using Moyra Pastel Shades no. 605 and dabbed some white acrylic paint over them because the color was too dark ( I ran out of light blue nail polish), then, I made a "french" line using Rimmel London 60 Seconds no. 816 Green Eyed Monster.
I painted the clouds using white acrylic paint and I started painting the characters using the "home made decals" technique. In the end I stuck the characters onto my nails, sealed everything with a top coat and added the velvet powder over the so-called french part of the manicure.
In the picture above you can see my favorite troop - the Archer, and below the (almost) indestructible and really funny giant.
In the picture below I painted the brave, but kinda dumb barbarian and the fierce Valkyrie ( she's my favorite because she's a sexy fighter with a huge axe).
If you have time and want to watch something funny, I recommend you see the short and funny videos made by Supercell ( the creators of the game).
This is my favorite:
I'm really curious what the other girls have painted on their nails.
Shall we go & take a look?
