Totoro Nail Art

Hello!! I hope you're doing swell. Nail art day!! It's Totoro!! Who doesn't like Totoro? Embarrassingly I don't know much about Totoro and it's totally something I should specialise in, oh well that never stops me from doing nail art of cute cartoons.

Sorry I thought my cuticles were ok when I took the pictures but apparently not
I did a simple little Totoro design with Totoro on the accent and then a little leaf which seems to be his thing. What animal is Totoro anyway? I'm not sure. Shamefully I just wanted Melange to shine (which looks great with topcoat) but it's a great background for Totoro, it fits the woodland magic feeling :P

I did the basic shape of Totoro with the brush of the polish then did pretty much everything else with the toothpicks. The nose and the bridge of it was harder than anticipated, you know, positioning issues. The leaf was hard too, I don't know why, I still was completely happy with it in the end. 

Base: Illamasqua - Melange
Grey: Barry M - Chai
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
White: Barry M - Matt White
Green: Barry M - Kiwi
Light Green: Etude House - No. 86

Thank you for reading!! And I hope you have a fabulous day!! :)
