Bulbasaur is probably in my top 3 Pokemon, which is a pretty prestigious list to be on. I've been playing Pokemon since I was a kid (on my green Game Boy Color) and still play it now (on my pink DS).
This design was challenging -- especially since it was done in only polish. It took a lot of time and patience to complete it, but I couldn't be happier with the representation.
As you can see, I've depicted sweet little Bulbasaur doing a spirited Vine Whip and have connected the vines between my nails.
The base gradient here was made using China Glaze Re-fresh Mint and LCN Fanappleistic.
The bulb and vines were done with Sally Hansen Going Green and his body was made with China Glaze For Audrey. The eyes are OPI Danke-shiny Red. Any other shades in the manicure were used by mixing in white or black with the aforementioned colors.
On my thumb, I did a depiction of Razor Leaf.
All of the nail art on this set was freehanded using my favorite medium length striper. It was definitely difficult at times and I had to go back and do a couple of corrective measures to keep Bulbasaur looking normal. A few times I had to manipulate his eyes to make him look less cross-eyed. Working on such a tiny canvas has its challenges!
Do you guys have a favorite Pokemon?
If you'd like, you can check out last year's day 04, but it definitely is not as exciting as this!
Stay tuned for tomorrow's blue nails, which I am so eager to show you!
