Emilio Ramos - Minnie Mouse Inspired Nails

Without a doubt, I am a Mickey and Minnie Mouse lover; and my clients have join my craze with their Minnie Mouse obsession.
I do believe that she is now a signature design and referrals always request Minnie Mouse upon their first visit.

It was becoming a bit traditional so I decided to switch Minnie up a bit with inspiration from Emilio Ramos (@emilio_ramos Instagram) who's paintings I fell in love with at first sight.

As usual all designs were hand painted using kleancolor nail lacquer and kiss nail art polish in black and white for detailing.

Here's a few of my Minnie Mouse Clique.

Garbage Pail Kids (TV Series) Nail Art

For those of you that never watched this cartoon series, you're just a tad bit young or due to controversial themes it was not aired in most states (United States).

Trinbagonians however, would have watched a couple series if not all before it was replaced with Muppet Babies.

I'm a bit late on posting these on the blog but here's to an early Throw Back Mani on the TV Series of GARBAGE PAIL KIDS

All designs were hand painted using KleanColor Nail Lacquer and kiss nail art polishes in white and black for detailing.

 Hope you all enjoyed.
Feel free to comment or make requests on any throw back cartoons you'll like to see me design.

Scooby Doo and Characters Cartoon Nail Art

Today's Throw Back Mani was inspired by another one of my favorite cartoons to date which original series "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" was created since 1969.

Featuring four teenagers and their talking brown great Dane Scooby-Doo  whose mission in solving mysteries involving supposedly "supernatural" creatures through a series of antics and missteps; I plotted my task and aimed to capture each character as best as I could using only colored nail polishes by KleanColor and Kiss nail art polish in black and white for my outlines.

Hope you all enjoyed today's Mani Throw Back as Scooby would howl... Scooby Dooby Doo!!!

Born Pretty Store Review Luxury Style Nail Crystal Embossed Metal 3D Nail Decorations - Carnival Tabanca

Hey dolls and gents a quick Mani Talk as well as reviewing this cute 3D nail decoration I got from  bornpretty store which was great for adding that extra Carnival costume glam on my 3d acrylic sculpted nail art display.

Luxury Style Nail Crystal Embossed Metal 3D Nail Decorations I got from Born Pretty Store

What a perfect timing one of my Instagram followers would choose to send me flesh tone nail goodies; being it then the countdown to Carnival where most dolls in Trinidad and Tobago would be parading the streets in costumes by various bands I decided why not become a costume designer for the day.

Born Pretty Store has these adorable 2pcs Luxury Style Nail Crystal Embossed Metal 3D Nail Decorations which I used as a corset for my dolls costuming. However, this 2pcs nail crystal embossed metal 3d nail decorations are only US$1.99 and I was lucky to have these in my possession for this review.

I must say designing costumes for the day was quite interesting and I applaud those men and women that assist in the preparation for designing hundreds to thousands of costumes yearly.
I sculpted these two nail art designs with inspiration from the many costumes I have viewed over the years and bornpretty store surely helped me with most of my costuming accessories.

SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Nail Art Design

Hey dolls and gents,

Today's Mani Talk was inspired by a set of SpongeBob SquarePants nail art designs I did last year for my display chart.

Spongebob nail art display I did in 2013

Seeing nails as a display and having the said nail art on a clients nails to me brings life to any nail art design.

Sometimes it's nice that viewers can get both looks just to compare growth as an artist and to me I enjoy the challenge I get from designing a set and using it as inspiration to design my clients nails.

I must say that these pics came out beautifully as was I wowed by Sponge bobs many facial expression.
I must confess I too am stunned at times with the finishing results after designing clients nails.

Here are the many expressions of Spongebob and I did not forget his bestie Patrick this time; so he too was included in the design.
Isn't he the cutest.

Love my clients she bought me a sponge bob ornament for my car

Alvin and the chipmunks Cartoon Nail Art

Today's Flash Back Mani was inspired by one of my favorite cartoons of the 90's 
The Chipmunks(TV Series)

Alvin the leader and oldest brother of the chipmunks was always the troublemaker which made each series interesting and boy oh boy when he'd tried his step dads patience Dave would always yell "ALVIN!!!"

Hope you all enjoy them as much as I did..

Alvin - oldest brother of the chipmunks 

Alvin's siblings Simon who was the smartest and tallest of the group played a more responsible role among the three as for Theodore was the youngest still innocent and such a cute fur ball.
