OHHH, Who Lives in a Pineapple, Under the Sea?


Day 93

...SPONGE-BOB SQUARE-PANTS!!!

Ok, so I find myself watching Spongebob Squarepants quite a bit, not sure why, but it amuses me. :-P Lots of celebs have done voices too, including the very dreamy Johnny Depp, who teaches Spongebob how to hang ten in one episode. These nails are also, in part, for my sister, who loves Spongebob!! :) These buggers took a while, all the black line work was tough, I wonder if I can find a smaller brush? Anyway, hope they make you want to steal the Secret Formula!! :-P



I used:

Thumb: Spongebob, of course!! :-P

American Apparel Manila as a base, mixed with a teeny bit of Zoya Envy for the spots, which you can't see really, lol. China Glaze White on White for eyes, teeth, and shirt, China Glaze Liquid Leather for all black lines. Zoya Yummy for the irises of his eyes, China Glaze Salsa for his tie and mixed with American Apparel Manila for his cheeks, and Zoya Dea mixed with American Apparel Palm Springs for his pants. (His SQUARE pants ;))

Index: Patrick's Belly (I couldn't fit his whole star body)

American Apparel Palm Coney Island as a base with Zoya Maya over top to add the coral-y ness. Zoya Maya mixed with China Glaze Salsa for the spots. China Glaze Liquid Leather for the black lines, OPI Parlez Vous OPI? for the flowers on his shorts, and Piggy Polish Good Moor-ing for the shorts color. FUN FACT: I used to design the packaging for Piggy Polish when I was a freelance designer!! :)

Middle: Gary's Shell

OPI Parlez Vous OPI? as the base color for the shell, with 2 coats of Essie Waltz over top to lighten the purple (it's still too dark, but oh well... if only I had Light as Air from Up & Away!! lol Anyway, I mixed China Glaze Salsa and Essie Alligator Purse for the swirl, and used Zoya Yummy for the spots. for Gary's body (what you see of it), I used Essie Mint Candy Apple.

Ring: Squidward's Mug :-P

Essie Mint Candy Apple as a base, with China Glaze Liquid Leather for the black lines, Essie Alligator Purse mixed with Zoya Dakota for the centers of his eyes, American Apparel Cotton for the 'whites' of his eyes, and Zoya Tallulah for the background color.

Pinky: Plankton :-)

Essie Sag Harbor as a base, with American Apparel Cotton for the eyes, China Glaze Salsa mixed with Essie Alligator Purse for the centers of the eyes, China Glaze Liquid Leather for the black lines, and China Glaze White on White for the teeth. For the antennae, I used BB Couture Poison Ivy and China Glaze Liquid Leather to outline.

Mew.

Disclosure: American Apparel Palm Springs was provided to me by American Apparel for review.
