Summer Challenge: Favorite Water Animal

Catch up time!

Hey everyone! I'm sorry I'm late with this one, but here it is anyway! Trying to catch up, but I'm not sure I'll have it done in time to include in the Inlinkz widget. Boo.

I really had no idea what to do for today, I had high hopes for a sea-horse but it was way too complicated and I'm feeling lazy. I was googling images for water animals when I googled Starfish and Spongebob came up.

Favorite Water ... Animals?

Confession time. I have no idea who Spongebob is, other than he has square pants and lives in a pineapple. Or something like that. Otherwise, nada. But he's popular and he's an animal right? Wait. He's a sponge. Sponges are animals...right? I did his friends too, which includes a starfish, so it counts!

Here is a picture with top coat. Top coat is nice because it evens everything out, especially the eyes which can get pretty built up with all the dotting.

I'm a bit embarrassed by this nail art. I had high hopes, but again, the fine details escape me and my proportions are off. Ahh well. Live and learn right? Every time I look at Spongebob I feel like he's on drugs. This is sort of a psychedelic interpretation of Spongebob and his friends ... =P

Nail Art Brushes

I need to invest in some good nail art brushes. All of mine are from kits for canvas painting, so 3/4 of them are bigger than my nail itself and the rest can't give me a nice fine line. I'm looking into MASH art brushes. Any other suggestions?
