Aaahh!!! Real Monsters & Angry Beavers

Nickelodeon came out with some wacky concepts for cartoons when we were little, am I right? These were two shows I definitely remember and really enjoyed painting!
Top row are characters from Aaahh!!! Real Monsters:
1 = Krumm
2 = Ickis
3 = Oblina

Middle row is the classic Nick splat logo. 
(In the background of all these nails I tried to recreate the lime green and bright orange splats that were typical of anything Nickelodeon.)

Bottom row is the two main characters from The Angry Beavers:
1 = Norbert
2 = Daggett

For this set I just did the finished product in the picture. It is certainly much easier than taking all of the pictures and collaging them for the tutorials.... If y'all are ok with this method, then I'll continue simplifying my posts. Let me know in the comments if you would rather me continue including the tutorial pics. And I will try to oblige. ;)

OR- I could just post the simplified posts with finalized pictures, and if you want to see how I did a particular character I could go back and post a tutorial? I don't know, what do you think?

  1. I used to love the Angry Beavers! :D

  2. omg those monsters used to scare the crap out of me
    you painted them so well! and scary! :P

  3. If you remember the show Kablam! I would love to see you do a Prometheus and Bob mani. You've got the skill to pull off claymation nails!

  4. ahh i loved these shows & nails!! U can watch these shows on Netflix now<3

  5. Personally, I love seeing the whole tutorial however it is a lot more work to do that. Post simplified versions & see if anyone wants the tutorial. PS: Have you done an "Inspector Gaget" look? ;) Just a suggestion.

  6. i loved the real monsters lol! i like seeing the tutorials but could always ask like you said if there is one in particular we want to see the tutorial of?

    keep up the great work either way

  7. Thanks everyone for your input! I think I'll do the final look and post tutorials following requests.

    @ Prettyfulz - what do you think I've been doing while painting these nails? Watching episodes on Netflix of course! Lol, great minds think alike!

    @ Adrianna & A Polished Touch - these two suggestions are great and have been added to the massive to-do list!

  8. This is one of my favorites!

  9. Awww, such nostalgia! I used to watch real Real Monsters all the time...

  10. Haha, that is hilarious! I love it!

  11. Angry beavers is without a doubt the best nickelodeon cartoon to date. I still call my husband spoothead
