La La La La La La La La La La Laaaaaa.


Try getting THAT out of your head!! *muahahahahahaha* Ok, anybody who's ANYBODY knows who the Smurfs are, and how...Smurfy they are. :-D I remember many a Saturday morning growing up waking up and watching the Smurfs on tv, since I grew up in the boonies, we didn't have cable, *GASP* (yes, that's for REAL. My parents STILL don't have cable) so Saturday mornings were the only time that cartoons were on TV, so we definitely made the most of them, most likely eating S'mores cereal, maybe Count Chocula, or perhaps my dad's amazingtastical fried eggs. (I am 29, and I STILL can't make fried eggs as well as he can.) Ahhh, the memories....

Can I also mention that two of my friends (and readers) got married today!! Congratulations Len & Sarah! I wish you both all the happiness in the world!!

And now, on to the nails! I did Papa Smurf on my thumb, Painter Smurf on my index finger, Smurfette on my middle finger, Vanity on my ring finger, and Brainy Smurf on my pinky. :)


I used Zoya Yummy as a base, with Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud for the hats and eyes, Eyeko Saucy Polish for Naughty Nails for the tongues (when you see 'em, the stem and spots of the mushroom, and Papa Smurf's hat. For Smurfette's hair, I used American Apparel Manila, which I also used for the center of the flower on Vanity Smurf's hat. For the top of the mushroom, I used butter LONDON Minger, which I also used for the paint splatter on Painter Smurf's hat. For his paintbrush, I used American Apparel California Trooper as a base, with a mixture of Color Club Best Dressed List and American Apparel Manila. For Vanity's flower, I used Color Club Ms. Socialite, then I used a combination (not mixed, just whatever I picked up on my brush) of Pure Ice Wild Thing, L.A. Girl Army Green, and Zoya Shawn, and as always, I used American Apparel Hassid to outline everything.

I have to say, I think this manicure is pretty smurfy. the only nail I'm not loving on my left hand is Smurfette, she was the first one I drew before changing my technique, and she looks a tad wonky. Ah well.

Sorry, no Gargamel this time, perhaps when the Smurfs movie comes out next summer. :-D

    I am sad that your year is almost over. But I imagine you are looking forward to it ending; I can't keep up with painting my nails once a week much less once a DAY and such gorgeous, elaborate design .... you have blown me away.

  17. I agree with NannaK, make a coffee table book! I would totally buy it! And I hope this does not count as Link Whoring, so feel free to remove it if you want, but I heart Smurfs too, (who doesn't??) and I made an edible Smurf in my bento box. I called him Bento Smurf. :) http://sonomabento.blogspot.com/2010/08/bento-smurf.html

    I grew up idolizing Smurfette just because she wore "tappy shoes", as i called them.

  20. Thank you everyone!!

    LMH- yeah, it has a ton of big cast members- Neil Patrick Harris, Katy Perry, Paul Reubens, Alan Cumming, Hank Azaria...even Tim Gunn!! I'm sure it'll be awful, but I'll probably see it anyway.

    Sonoma Bento- OMG that is SO cute- I always marvel at people's Bento creations!!!
