"Gotta Blast!"-Nail Art Tribute to Jimmy Neutron


                                                 


Happy Friday, Friends!

Today's Nail Art Tribute goes to Nickelodeon's computer-animated boy-genius, Jimmy Neutron.

                                    
Jimmy Neutron was first introduced through the feature film, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius in 2001. The film inspired a series that ran on Nickelodeon from 2002-2006 followed the 11-year-old boy and his classmate that often fall prey to his inventions that often malfunction by accident.

                                   
I could not quite recreate Jimmy signature ice cream swirly hair but I did my best to recreate his essence as I tried to replicated his iconic red atom shirt. I also couldn't resist the opportunity to recreate another galaxy nail.

Let me know in the comments below if you want to see any other Nicktoons represented for the next nail art tribute.

               

Sunflower Chuck Taylors




 Happy Friday, Friends!

Today's DIY project goes to the quintessential 90's sneaker, the high top Chuck Taylor. What was once a popular basketball shoe in the 1970's, the Chuck Taylor quickly became a counterculture staple amongst grunge rockers and gangsta rappers. I wanted to combine this high top sneaker with some art work and decided to illustrate the quintessential 90's blossom, The Sunflower, on the panels.

I got the White Monochrome Chuck Taylors from Amazon as well as a set of Acrylic paints.


I hope you enjoy the video below and I hope that you are able to catch some sunshine this weekend!


                  

Yabba Dabba Doo!- Flintstones Nail Art Tribute





Happy Friday Friends!

Today's Nail Art Tribute goes to The Flintstones.

A cartoon by Hanna-Barbera, The Flintstones was one of the first animated series to have a Prime time TV listing. The show debuted in 1960 and ran for 6 years on ABC which featured a married couple in the stone age with prehistoric technology.




The show was similar to a popular real life sitcom The Honeymooners in that it featured Fred Flintstone as a boorish individual married to a sassy woman, Wilma Flintstone.



                                      
Their best friends and neighbors are the Rubbles, Barney and Betty whose dynamic between a slightly more intelligent wife and a bumbling husband mirrors the main protagonist.

Like most of the animation by Hanna-Barbera, The Flintstones are enjoyed many franchise revamps that have given them new life for decades.




                                           
 
Some of my fondest memories of the Flintstones have come from the 90's like with Flintstone's Vitamins, Flintstone push up pops,re-runs of the Flintstone Kids, and the Live Action Flintstones movie.

                                          
By Order of the Water Buffalo, take a look at the finished product that features Dino, Wilma, Fred, Barney, and Betty.

                                           

                

They'll Push your Buttons and Make you Wanna Hug 'Em-Proud Family Nail Art Tribute

                                            


It's Friday!

Today's tribute goes to the Disney Channel animated series, The Proud Family. The Proud Family aired September 2001 to August 2005.

The show follows 14-year-old Penny Proud as she comes of age. Penny juggles her changing family dynamic as well as learning to be her own person amongst her peers.

                                                  
The cast featured multicultural characters, popular slang, and lessons on tolerance.

I have very fond memories of waiting all week for the new Proud Family episodes to drop because Penny's growing pains mirrored my own.
                                            

I chose to represent Sticky, Dijonae, LaCienga, Penny,and Zoey. Let me know if there are any other tutorials you would like to see in the future. Until the next time!

Everybody Wants to be a Cat-The Aristocats Nail Art Tribute




                                                         

Welcome Friends,

Today's nail art tribute goes to the film, The Aristocats. Originally released in 1970, Aristocats is a Disney animated film about a retired Parisian Opera Singer living in Paris with her cats in the early 1900s. Her Butler, Edgar has devised a plan to abandon Duchess and her kittens Berlioz, Toulouse, and Marie in the countryside once he learned that Madame has willed all of her fortune to her pets with Edgar being last in line for an inheritance.
                                      
Duchess and the kittens encounter an alley cat named Thomas O’Malley who offers to get them back to Madame in Paris with his street smarts.

The film was re-released to theaters in 1980 and again in 1987. My encounter with the film was when it was released to VHS in 1996.

I chose to represent Thomas, Duchess, Berlioz, Toulouse, and Marie. After you have practiced your scales and arpeggios, take a look at the video below.  Until the next time!


                

"Dishonor on You, Dishonor on Your Cow"- Mulan Inspired Nail Art

                                                     

Happy Friday!

Today's Nail Art Tribute goes to Disney's Mulan. Mulan is a 1998 animated comedy/adventure film about a young woman named Mulan who impersonates a male solider in order to take her Father's place in the army that is preparing to defend China from the Huns.


As a little girl growing up, I was very moved by the scene when Mulan cut her hair in order to masquerade as "Ping". I thought she was very brave and like a true Disney renaissance woman, she was a three dimensional person before meeting her love interest.

                                          

 I was also very moved by  the Chinese animation influences that Mulan featured such as the use of the tapestries.

Today's tribute goes to Mulan's warrior gear, her Bride robes, Mushu, and cherry blossoms.
