We can do anything that we wanna do!-Blue's Clues Nailr Art Tribute


Hello Friends,

Let's start the work week right and pay tribute to the awesome show geared toward preschoolers, Blue's Clues. Blue's Clues is an American show that combines real-life action and animation to provide an educational program. The show debuted on Nick Jr. which was an early morning to mid-afternoon scheduling block designed for preschool-aged children on the network Nickelodeon. The shows first episode ran on September 8, 1996.

The show was hosted by Steve Burns who would greet the audience in the theme song and invite them to assist him in finding clues to help solve mysteries. The clues were left by his blue spotted puppy, named Blue who would leave blue paw prints on items pertaining to the mystery on the day.

Steven carried a "Handy Dandy Notebook" and a green crayon to draw the clues that Blue left so that he could reference them later in order to solve the riddle.


The show had plenty of sing-along moments such as "Mail Time" "We Just Got a Letter" and of course "Blue's Clues". The show also had a host of characters that helped with finding clues like Shovel & Pail orMr. Salt & Mrs. Pepper with baby Paprika

The show was critically acclaimed and of Nick Jr.'s most successful shows. Steve Burns remained the host of Blues Clues until 2006 when he turned over his hosting duties to Donovan Patton who played Steve's brother, "Joe".

I was well beyond Preschool when the show debuted but I enjoyed watching the show along with my baby brother. I was sad to see Steve go. I graduated High School when he left and it was the end of an era in more ways than one. The nostalgia fairies must have heard me when Nick Jr. decided to bring back Blues Clues! To pay tribute to this amazing show and to give credit to the OG Steve, I created a set of Blue's Clues nails!

I had the hardest time with creating the art for Blue herself. I couldn't get her mouth down so I focused on painted her eyes. I also tried my best to replicate that darling orange wallpaper but the color is pretty close. I also sprinkled a few paw print clues (hint hint).

 Let me know if you want to see any more Nick Jr. Tributes in the future!
