Pinky & the Brain - Take Two

Alexisaurus - asked if I do both hands or just one? I know I've answered this before, but it applies to this post.
Most of the time, I only do one hand and take pics. Then I remove it and put on something more practical for my daily life. It might be different if I was a nurse on a pediatric ward, but I work with adults.... and I can't make myself wear the crazy cartoon nails to work. There are times however that I may tone it down a bit and make it wearable. Take for instance the Rocko's Modern Life cartoon post here. I wore that as a full mani for a day or so. I felt it was less "in-your-face."
I decided to do Pinky and the Brain as a full mani. One of my male coworkers is always asking what is on my nails each time I see him. He has a picture of Brain on his binder he carries around, so I decided to do it in his honor! Lol, I know he's working today and he'll see them. 
 I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Cafe Au Lait. I recently found this one and I think it's an ever better nude than Iced Coffee, for my skin tone. Sally Hansen Insta Dri Whirlwind White for the tips. Acrylic paints for the cartoon nails.
 I'm much more shaky when using my non dominant hand!

  1. you did an awesome job with your non-dom hand!

  2. i really love this as a french.

  3. aw yeah sometimes subtelty is best for everyday! can i ask you where you get your acrylic paints? i just bought some really cheap ones from our £store and they are teeerrriibbblllee! x

  4. @LemonyEmily - I get my at a few different places and I find them virtually all the same quality. Some I've gotten from major discount retailers. (Wal-mart). And others I've gotten from craft & hobby stores. (Michael's or Hobby Lobby). I know some have bought them from the Born Pretty online store for use in nail art, but I personally don't have any experience with them to know if they're good or not. Hope this helps!

  5. thanks leslie! I think ill just try the supermarkets and craft shops over here. the ones i got are really lumpy and grainy - its dead weird! x
