Facebook Sticker Series: Banana the Monkey

Hey there guys, I have a new series today. It's about time considering I came up with this over a year ago, this is a PlumeraPainted trend; I have an idea, I wait a year before I actually do it :/ anyway this will be an ongoing series (until Facebook runs out of stickers) where I do nail art based on the Facebook stickers you can get in Messenger. They are usually super cute, which come on you know me I love cute things. I get the hard part is how small the stickers are, it can be hard to see but nothing impossible. So the 1st edition will be the Banana stickers, some of my favourites (if not my favourite) as the monkey is so goofy and cute.

There are always so many stickers to pick from and today I picked the WAA Monkey and Banana in a teacup, which I really liked. And the WAA Monkey is my favourite ever, cause I feel the WAA! embodies many feelings and add the flailed arms in the air, it's a very all-encompassing emotion that I feel relates to many aspects of our collective lives.
I love the colours of Banana, he's teal which is enough for me. And oh my gosh he's so cute in a teacup!!! I think the weak point of this design is the bananas which are a bit dodgy, but I definitely don't think it's enough to ruin the design. In fact I really really like it!!

I used the brush of the polish a lot for this design, it worked well for the head and arms. The majority of the design I just used toothpicks and freehanded the design. Yeah I don't have much else to say. That's unusual haha.

Look how great the flakies look over Carousel!! o.O
