BFF Challenge: Cartoons/Anime

Sorry for the radio silence here! After my orange stash post on Sunday (I know, right?) I felt both depressed by how many polishes I own and inspired to get to organizin' - so I've been lazily swatching, comparing, and purging since Sunday (if you were curious as to where I've been and all that). But I'm back with some nail art today (*ahem* tonight)! And I am so THRILLED to talk about this cute nail art group I'm a part of - it's a group of eight nail bloggers that have designed challenges based on our favorite things! So now you can get to know us a little better all while we stay inspired to do nail art - cool, eh? Today's theme comes from Thiamere who chose cartoons/anime.

Manicurity: BFF Challenge - Anime Faces!

My favorite part of anime is the fun expressions characters have! I chose to do different nude/tan/buff skittles and paired them with different faces. This was really fun to wear! I liked that the design was a different orientation than my usual nail art.

I've read a few mangas, but I'm not super familiar with anime. My favorite anime on Netflix is Srgt. Frog; hilarious. Death Note was also pretty cool; I watched the first movie (live action) before the animated show, though. Anyhoo, here's a bottle shot of the different polishes I used. When using CND Perfectly Bare for the first time in this mani, I audibly gasped at how freakin sweet and opaque it is!
