Pokemon Challenge: Water Type

Hey guys. Let me just start by saying that I'm not super proud of this week's nails. I had a vision in my head and it just didn't come out looking as cool as it did in my head. Anyway - this week's theme for the Pokemon  Challenge is Water Type - and I chose Staryu and Starmie. Here's the photo I used for inspiration!


I've never been a big fan of Water types, probably because I'm so into Fire types, but I do think these two look pretty cool! Here's my interpretation of Staryu and Starmie!




I used a base of Wet n Wild I Need a Refresh-mint for all the nails, and the glitter I used is Chirality Neptunus, which I just got today and LOVE! I tried to pick colors that were fairly close to the Pokemon, but once I edited photos, I realized Staryu is too light and it kind of all blends together. Meh :/ Oh well - I will try harder next week! I used gems that I bought from Sally's to finish the look. :)



What do you think of these nails? Not my favorite but not my worst either, I think! Definitely check out the other ladies' nails too! :)

    1. Thanks Melanie! The lighting in my lightbox made it look worse than it was I think :) And I LOVE that glitter too!

  3. I love the gems! Such a great idea... Maybe it could be a bit more polished (lol), but it is so cute nonetheless.

  7. I can't believe how perfect you got the star shape! And I'm getting jealous of all the glitter you're getting to use AND and I agree with everyone else, those gems ROCK.

    I never have any idea what you're talking about when you critique your nails btw. I can most definitely see that Staryu and it looks as happy as a Staryu can! =D
