Pokemon nails!


Good morning! I think I'm a little overdue on video game nail art, so here's an easy one: Pokemon nails!
Those hours spent hunting down critters and catching them, adventuring through the same general premise no matter the generation, over 400 Pokemon to find and catch... can you find a more popular timesink? Those hours spent evolving, breeding, entering contests and battling were awesome, especially since it's cemented itself as a handheld must-have. I have long wanted to do Pokemon nails, but was lacking the perfect yellow and i finally found it - SH Instadry Lighting is what I used as a base colour for Pikachu and Revlon Fire/SH Instadry Whirlwind White for the Pokeballs. 

Here's a nice pic my mom snapped!
I've seen Pokeballs on nails many times before, but I still wanted to try them - it's relatively easy to make and actually looks like a really cool nail design to someone who has no idea what they are. I used tape to tape off a half of the nail, will with the other color and when dry, drew a line with black and using a dotting tool to put in white dots. Pikachu was drawn with the black nail art pen and dotting tools as well.
I want to attempt more Pokemon on my nails, especially the classics! any specific ones you want to see done?

      You should go for it! Its easier than I imagined. Base color, wait to dry, tape off half the nail, paint with other color... draw a line across and a white dot :D Show me if you attempt them!
