Pokemon Theme: Dratini Set…

So apologies for my week of absence, I had a spontaneous holiday (a last minute deal for an all inclusive week in Majorca – who could resist?) and therefore didn’t have time to schedule any nail art.

Dragonite annoys me to no ends, he’s my least favourite pokemon for several reasons.
1) It looks like a fat charizard. I mean they’re both the same colours and mostly the same shape.
2) Dratini and Dragonair are blue, elegant and cute so how on earth do they eventually evolve in to that fat, orange Charizard imposter.
3) What happens to the gems that have been evolving; dratini starts off with one on his head, dragonair develops two on his tail and one under his chin and then dragonite… none, where do they go?
4) Just no. I just don’t see it, it doesn’t make sense, something went wrong. It could have looked so much cooler, keeping with the serpentine body and blueish hues it could have looked great but no.

Is anyone else with me on this? Or do I just sound a little crazy now…

Pokemon Theme: Moltres…

So I’m so close to finishing this challenge! It’s unfortunately taken a ridiculous amount of time however (I mean we’re talking two years…), so it almost means nothing now in terms of a ‘challenge’ but I’ve enjoyed doing it.

Pokemon Theme: Zapdos…

So this is the second bird from the legendary trio. I had fun painting him but it was quite hard to get so many lines painted in such a small space. The best part was actually the base I created, I think I’ll have to use it for some future nail art!

Pokemon Theme: Articuno…

So the legendary birds from the original series form a trio, and it actually explains this in their names; articuno (1), Zapdos (2), Moltres (3). How cool is that?

I wasn’t too impressed with how Articuno turned out, I wish I could have conveyed more of it’s natural grace and beauty. Instead I’ve got a sort of pudgy pigeon who can’t wait to fly off the nail…

Pokemon Theme: Snorlax…

So this is my partners favourite pokemon. I think it’s because he sees a little of himself in Snorlax; they’re both over-weight (he’s not quite as large as snorlax obviously…) and also pretty, darn lazy. Fortunately he doesn’t read my blog so there’s no risk of offence being taken! It’s said in playful jest anyway…

Pokemon Theme: Electabuzz…

So surely I wasn’t the only one who thought this guys name was actually ‘Electrabuzz’? I’ve been saying it incorrectly for at least like 16 years, how embarrassing. It just doesn’t sound right now! I also never really noticed it’s feline-like appearance (until reading up about it on Bulbapedia), especially in regards to it’s tiger like pattern on it’s fur. So that’s what I decided to choose as the focus for my nail art – the pelt of an Electabuzz.

Pokemon Theme: Jynx…

So Jynx started off a little controversial as originally she was a ‘curvy’ female figure, with big lips and a black face – it was seen as a little offensive due to the resemblance to a ‘golliwog’ doll. So her face was turned to a purple colour, and that’s the colour I decided to paint with.
