Pokemon Theme: Vulpix and Ninetales…

So here’s Vulpix and Ninetales. I always felt they were the type that you’d have as lovely family pets or something. I’m happy with both of these, but that Ninetales was tricky!

Pokemon Theme: Nidoran Set…

So I decided to paint the female and male versions of Nidoran and their evolution’s in one go seeing as I was going to be doing the same style for them both.  Nidoran, Nidorina and Nidorino are all a bit ‘meh, uninteresting’ but do work. I don’t particularly like Nidoqueen, the colour didn’t photograph very well and has turned super blue. But I’m kinda happy with Nidoking!

I think the problem is I was so chuffed with my Sandshrew/Sandslash and I was having one of those messy days. My accuracy was rubbish, the nail polish was stringing a lot for some reason, and there was fluff fricken everywhere for no apparent reason too! Argghh… Tomorrow is another day… I’m sorry if I always sound like a negative nelly, I’ve always been super critical and even though I’m aware of it since people tell me there’s no need to be like that, I just can’t be any other way about my own work! Anyone else?

Pokemon Theme: Pikachu and Raichu…

So there’s tonnes of Pikachu nail art out there, I decided to stay away from the typical face/ears/cheeks and go for another main difference between Pikachu and Raichu – their tails! If I do say so myself, I think it looks quite effective!

Pokemon Theme: Rattata and Raticate…

So I’m not over the moon with these. I was putting them off for ages – all of the ideas I drew for them looked a bit silly and clumsy. I know I could have painted them better but there’s no time to re-do them. The challenge must go on!

Pokemon Theme: Pidgey Set…

So here’s another Pokemon set! This was quite an easy one to decide on seeing as the main differences between the birds is their head plumage.

I’ve been quite quiet lately due to changing broadband provider, blah blah blah, yawn yawn yawn, so I had a lot of posts scheduled to tide me over. But this is me back now.

Pokemon Theme: Squirtle Set…

So I didn’t like Squirtle ever, I never chose him. (I thought Blastoise was pretty cool though.) One of the main differences between them all was their shells, so that’s what I wanted to highlight! We’re only up to #09 so I hope you aren’t bored already!

Pokemon Theme: Charmander Set…

So I did not fancy trying to paint their faces or anything! Therefore thought it would be quite cool to paint a growing flame for ‘Charmander’, ‘Charmeleon’ and ‘Charizard’ seeing as that’s one of the main differences between the different characters.  I hope it doesn’t count as cheating!

Pokemon Theme: Bulbasaur Set…

So unfortunately I’m 23 years old and still love Pokemon. It’s probably really sad and weird for those of you who don’t get it, but for those who do – you’ll understand. I had a crazy idea to try and paint all 150 of the original Pokemon, but then realised this might a) take me years b) turn my blog into solely Pokemon nail art therefore alienating those who don’t know/get Pokemon c) result in me never wanting to see any of them again because I’ve looked at them so much. However! I have started at #01 – Bulbasaur and it’s evolution’s. I always chose him as my starter Pokemon, yeahr!

(P.S When I first started playing Pokemon cards, I said ‘Evolvations’ instead of ‘Evolutions’. Anyone else?…)
