200 followers and some bug pokemon!

I broke 200 here on the blog! That's so exciting! I appreciate all of the nail friends, so thank you for being here!

As for TODAY! Shorter post. This week on the pokemon nail challenge:

now, while not my favorite pokemon type (really, Viridian Forest was my least favorite place) the bugs certainly have interesting designs! And I picked the better of the two cocoon pokémon, Kakuna!

Almost incapable of moving, this POKéMON can only harden its shell to protect itself from predators.

Used Manglaze Fuggen Ugly as a base!

Chg Happy Go Lucky, Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow,  Sinful Snow Me White and Chg Liquid Leather

Topped the ring and pinky with Poshe to be consistent! (I didn't feel like matting out the art! ^_^)

next week is flying type! I'm excited!

Don't forget to check out the other amazing entries!

And the giveaway is still going until the 24th! Giveaway Info!

It's not very effective...

Hey there, Nail Friends!

I'm a day late for water type week here in the Pokémon nail challenge!

 But we're a laid back group of ladies (who you are welcome to still join!) and everyone's accepting of tardiness. Speaking of this group, there were some AMAZING pieces of nail art this week from all these talented people and you should check them out! Inlinkz links at the bottom!

So where should I start...hmmm. Well I was just wandering around aimlessly, wondering what pokémon I should choose this week when I was given a golden pokéball. Whatever could be IN IT! It must be the most amazing pokémon in the universe! So I cracked it open and what do I get?

That pic was too good not to use. ANYWAY NAILS!

It's that day! Giveaway day!

Hey there, Nail Friends!

Last week I posted a bit of a teaser for a giveaway I've had in planning since....last August. This giveaway is a little different from ones you've seen before. You don't have to follow me or be a fan. Every 25 cents you donate is an entry! There are no entry limits, so you can donate as much as you want and every quarter is another entry in the running for what I think is a pretty darned fantastic prize!

Is this not awesome!?

"But what are we donating to?" GOOD QUESTION!

Sassy Magmar

Hi there, Nail Friends!

I just couldn't come up with a silly I had to go with descriptive. Because this pokémon is SASSY!

An anecdote:

I'm sitting on my computer trying to figure out which fire-type pokémon when my boyfriend says, "what about Magmar?" and then a pause. "You could do him doing duckface"

That is Magmar. And these are magmar nails!

Yes Magmar. LOVE the camera!

Pokédex entry: "Its body always burns with an orange glow that enables it to hide perfectly among flames." (source: totally trying to seduce the camera. But doesn't realize he's surrounded by bacon!lava. And he has carpet fuzz on him. lol. FIRE TYPE WEEK! Mostly a success!

Polished used:
Zoya Purity (base of white)
China Glaze Salsa
China Glaze Happy Go Lucky
China Glaze Papaya Punch
China Glaze Liquid Leather

next week is my favorite type! :D

make sure to check out the other awesome ladies and their pokémon this week~

Until next time, Nail Friends!

What's that in the tall grass~?

Hello, Nail Friends!

It's dangerous out there without a pokémon! Wild oddish are in the grass! But can you tell which is a pokémon and which is just a plant?

Hint: one of these are pokémon! (the one you can barely see!)
Take it away, Dex!

"Oddish. The "weed" pokémonDuring the day, it keeps its face buried in the ground. At night, it wanders around sowing its seeds." (Source:


That's RIGHT! It's week one of the Pokémon nail challenge! Hosted by yours truly and Sharra from The Blahg, this challenge is a pokémon a week from each of the different types. This week is Grass-type pokémon and I chose Oddish! (He was a very popular little guy this week, scoring 1st place in number of nails he adorned!)

And he's SO happy to see you!
For this mani I used:
a teeny paintbrush
China Glaze Liquid Leather
Cult Nails Manipulative
Sinful Colors Snow Me White
China Glaze Salsa
Zoya Shawn
Sinful Colors Innocence
Zoya Skylar
China Glaze Aqua Baby!

Who wants to geek out with us?

Hey there, Nail Friends!

So if you've poked around the blog a bit, you may notice a tab up top there that says "Gotta Catch 'Em All!" I have made it my goal to eventually have painted every one of the original 151 pokémon on my nails. 4 down. a LOT to go!

This pokéball crocheted by the AWESOME sami of Teliches! (IT SQUEAKS)

That's right. I love pokémon. I SAID IT! (haha like you didn't already know.) At any rate, I love pokémon and I love nails and you know what? I'm NOT THE ONLY ONE! Sharra from The Blahg and I came up with a super fun, super awesome way to show our need to be the very best!


reaaaaaady....FIGHT! (oh...wrong game? my bad.)
