Nerdy for Nails: Pokeballs

I'm officially joining my first nail challenge! Staying true to my blog name, it's probably the nerdiest challenge possible: The Blahg's Gotta Paint 'em All Pokemon Nail Challenge. The first post is due this Sunday, but I'll probably be posting my grass type nails on Monday since I'll be out of town for the weekend.

In honor of the upcoming challenge I'm starting with pokeball themed nails. Hopefully it's not too hard to tell what's going on here. It's meant to look like Ash throwing his pokeball. I painted all the details on freehand with a tiny brush.

Here's a closer shot of Ash on my thumb nail.

I made tiny pokeballs on my right hand by dabbing the brush from the bottle of white polish to make the larger dots. I colored in the red and black parts using my tiny brush and the dots were made with a dotting tool. It's a little sloppy because I'm not very good at drawing with my left hand (yet?).

Here are both hands. I love how the 3 different sizes of pokeballs look next to each other.

I've used so many different colors here, especially for Ash, so I'm only going to list the main ones.

White- Finger Paints, Paper Mache
Blue- China Glaze, Shower Together
Grey- China Glaze, Recycle
Red- Spoiled, Hit The Breaks

Check out what everyone else is doing:
