Meep! Meep!


Guess whose birthday it is today?! I'll give you a hint... one of them preferred ACME brand products! :) If you guessed Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner, You're correct! Today marks their 61st birthday! :) The first time they aired was September 16, 1949 with a cartoon named Fast and Furry-ous. :) Today's manicure is dedicated to those silly characters that make us laugh!


I used OPI What's With the Cattitude? as a base, with OPI Ginger Bells for the landscape, mixed with American Apparel Palm Springs to highlight, and then I used Essie Alligator Purse to shade, then used L.A. Girl Army Green for the cacti. For Wile E. Coyote, I used American Apparel California Trooper as a base, then Barielle Unraveled Rust for his fur, then outlined with American Apparel Hassid. For Road Runner, I used Orly Snowcone as a base, with ALDO Sea You in Ibiza for the wings, and head feathers, and Sally Hanson Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in 06 Sun Kissed for the beak and legs. For the eyes I used Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud, with American Apparel Hassid for the pupils and to outline. For the sign, I used Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud, Barielle Unraveled Rust for the post, and A Beautiful Life Poison for the words. The crate was a combination of Barielle Unraveled Rust, American Apparel California Trooper and American Apparel Palm Springs, then the same combination with more Barielle Unraveled Rust to shade, American Apparel Hassid to outline and for the ACME stencil, Nubar Sexy Red for the rocket, and A Beautiful Life Poison for the dynamite. Topped everything off with two coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Meep! Meep! (Fun fact: It's actually Beep! Beep!, it just sounds like Meep! Meep!)

  11. Looking back, using "Acme" as the name of the company where Wile E. Coyote got all of the things to blow them all into the stratosphere was pretty genius. I didn't get it then.
    These, once again, are perfect! You are the ACME of nail art!

  12. This one is so good!! I feel like it's a still from the show. I used to always watch the cartoon, hoping the coyote would eventually catch him...I was too young to understand the premise of the show!
