Pokemon Nail Challenge #2: FIRE

I'm really lucky for a lot of reasons. To jump right into it, one of them is because I get to do my FAVOURITE POKEMON EVAR right now. Right. Now.

Orly Cha Cha Cha and some acrylic paint....

heehee, any guesses?

Before Seche...

After Seche..

So yeah, I LOVE Arcanine. It's super cute in all the new games, even if the original design (see Pokemon card) wasn't super endearing. But lookit him! He looks so CUDDLY.

So on my right hand is my guinea pig hand (I'm left-handed) and I got what looks like a widdle Growlithe while on my left I tried to make it look more grown up and get an Arcanine. I think I kind of succeeded to we'll say this post is for Growlithe/Arcanine, seeing as they kinda look the same anyway. I wish I coulda put his tail on my nails somewhere but alas, can't have it all.

I really wish I had more to say about this, but I do a lot of squee-ing over my Arcanines (Blaze in HeartGold, Tiger in Platinum, Toby in Black2...) so it's kind of dilute. I wub them all though.

Nichole had the idea to sketch the Pokemon she was doing and I liked it, so I'm doing to anyway.

=) The left is more recent, though I think I like the right one better. Drawing Arcanine really drives home that I imagine him with a big lion's mane and akita paws. Tiger puppy <3 Mwah! Check out everyone else's! Fire was a very well represented type in generation 1!
