Misfit Dog + Bear Plushie Nail Art

Hi there guys!! I have the day off school today which is potentially one of the most beautiful things ever. Since my exams are over I'm trying to watch as many movies as possible and again it's beautiful and I love it, currently I've watched Ballet Shoes (one of my favourite movies EVER, seriously it makes me the happiest and I love the setting of the film), Singin' In The Rain and Finding Nemo.
Today I have my first kind of Christmas design, I painted the dog(? or maybe an elephant) from The Island Of Misfit Toys (I owned that DVD) and a random bear, which I realised looked liked Lotso Huggin' Bear from Toy Story 3, whom was also a misfit.

Switched to my lounge light which I realise I actually quite like when I can get my pictures in focus (though it doesn't show half how pretty the colours are here) 
When I'd first finished I didn't like it, which is something standard of me, when I feel like I could've painted MUCH cuter it's standard cause cuteness is everything :P But after a while I thought it was ok, they are quite cute. Though the dogs don't really look like dogs, but I can look past that haha.
I especially like the polishes which were new after a shopping trip (Christmas shopping :D I'm pretty sorted for the presents I'm giving), I adore that shade of light pink especially with the HOLOGRAPHIC GLITTER, I WANT TO PUT IT OVER EVERYTHING. Holographic glitter is also everything. And the white textured polish which I think is very reminiscent of shimmering snow, me gusta mucho (that spanish could be totally wrong, mi espanol es no bueno).
On another note I got the Deborah Lippmann Addicted To Speed topcoat in a set and I tested it out on my thumb. You can't really see it in the photos but it smudged and it wasn't pretty, obviously for all the other nails I switched back to my perfect Color Club topcoat.

Pale Pink and holographic glitter: Barry M - Dragon Fruit and Barry M - Superdrug Xmas Limited Edition 2013 E
Dragon Fruit has the most grogeous hidden shimmer and I love it, hoping to get an accurate swatch picture soon. And you better believe I got the Superdrug Limited Edition, I love them and you know that, and this one is no different, pink holographic glitter? Yes please.
White: Lovely Me:Ex - White and Barry M - Matt White (and still it smudges with the Deborah Lippmann topcoat -_-)
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
Red: OPI - Jinx
Blue: Essie - Bikini So Teeny
Textured White: Barry M - Lady
Dark Pink: Color Club - Wing Fling
Light Pink: Orly - Basket Case
Green (which totally looks blue): Rimmel - Block Your Green!

Thanks for reading, I hope to get to watching a movie soon and I hope you have a great day!!! :)


  1. Aww this one is really cute <3 The dog looks a bit like a bunny but when I read that it's supposed to be a dog I was like "ah, right! Now I see it" so it's definitely recognisable.
    Good to hear your exams are over. I have one next week so I still have to study but it's ok, one week I can endure haha Haven't heard of The Island of Misfit Toys yet but the characters seem interesting ^-^

    1. Thank you!!! :3 Yeah I totally see the bunny, it's the ears. But it's a good thing I like bunnies too ;)
      Yay I'm so glad mine are over, I hope you get through your exams unscathed and obviously with the best results :) The Island of Misfit toys only came back recently and I haven't watched it in AGES but I remember enjoying it :)

  2. Oh, I love that movie! And I never had thought of that before, Lotso is a perfect misfit toy!

    1. I remember loving that movie too!! It was all very coincidental (I just wanted to paint a bear) but once I made the connection it all fit together perfectly!! :)

  3. I love singin' in the rain! It is my favourite film ever! ^^ This manicure is just stunning, I don't see how you could have made it cuter than that! However, I never watched that film. Actually, I never heard of it... I'll have to look up for it on the internet :p

    1. Oh my gosh Singin' In The Rain is so fantastic!! I hadn't watched it in so long but it's just so good!! Oh thank you!! I guess I can be a little hard on myself sometimes. Haha it was pretty good from what I remember (though it was a LONG time ago) :)
