Playing with Polish: SpongeBob nail art starring my sister's hands

As many of you know, one of my baby sisters came to stay with me last week! While all of my sisters are interested in makeup, we vary in taste, but I'd say this sister and I are the most similar when it comes to makeup likes. We ended up playing with my polish collection while she was here, which was a blast! I'm not sure how this mani ended up with a SpongeBob theme since we originally went for an ocean theme (I have 2 little kids what can I say?), but that's eventually where it headed ;)

I couldn't find any of my nail dotting tools, but I did find some orange sticks, so please don't judge me! While this mani is cute, it's definitely not my absolute best work haha. I still thought you lovelies might get a kick out of it. For those wondering, the majority of polishes I used were Zoya and China Glaze, with 1 butter LONDON and 1 OPI polish thrown in the mix. In case you don't recognize the nail shape, that's because these are my sister's hands! She prefers a more rounded shape while I also choose either Square or Squoval.

This is how it all started! My sister wanted an ocean blue with some seaweed and a cute fish (left is hers, right is mine). 

Somehow 1 orange fish turned into an entire SpongeBob mani! Left to right starting with the thumb: orange fish, pineapple, SpongeBob, Patrick, Plankton.

Here you can see SpongeBob, Patrick, and Plankton (sorry about the glare on Plankton, I couldn't prevent it!).

Here's a slightly better view of SpongeBob and Patrick. It was a little hard to capture between the size and color, but Spongebob has a nose and buck teeth ;) Also, SpongeBob was holding a silver spatula in the hand you can't fully see!

I know some of you are probably curious as to what colors I used so here they are:

  • Blue background - China Glaze Towel Boy Toy
  • Seaweed - China Glaze Holly Day
  • Orange Fish - Zoya Paz
  • Pineapple body - mix of Zoya Paz and Zoya Bekka over white with OPI Warm & Fozzie for criss-cross pattern and Zoya Trixie for hatch-style door
  • SpongeBob body - Zoya Bekka over white
  • SpongeBob shorts - OPI Warm & Fozzie
  • SpongeBob shoes - butter LONDON Chimney Sweep
  • SpongeBob spatula - Zoya Trixie
  • Patrick body - Zoya Kennedy
  • Patrick shorts - China Glaze In the Lime Light background with Zoya Tru pattern
  • Plankton - China Glaze Westside Warrior

I think that about sums it up! I'm going to try to post more nail art pics now and then since I always seem to forget to photo them ;) Hopefully you guys can remind me!

What do you think of this cutesy SpongeBob mani?
