I am not a Monday person. I am not a morning person either. So when you've got me on a Monday morning, it's kind of like hanging out with your cat if you just took it to a vet for shots. Anyway today is Shitty Nail Art Monday and I've got some Hayao Miyazaki inspired nail art today. If you've seen Spirited Away or My Neighbour Totoro, you know what these little guys are - they are the soot dudes! They're adorable!
I used OPI Alpine White for a base, and with OPI Black Onyx, I dabbed some black blots, purposely making them a bit "brushy". Then I used a dotting tool for the eyes - the bigger end for the whites, and a finer end for the pupils. I was too lazy to put on top coat but I think it would have been beneficial. Ah well.
Anyway I think I might tackle a more elaborate Hayao Miyazaki nail art another day. I thought these soot dudes were pretty simple! Maybe next time I'll put them over a nicer colour than a plain white.
Speaking of Japanese-esque kind of things - if you grew up with the likes of Power Rangers, Macross Plus, Godzilla - go see Pacific Rim. Oh goodness, I LOVED IT. Have you done any nail art that was surprisingly easy?
