BFF Nail Art Challenge:Cartoon/Anime Nail Art

I, together with other fabulous nail bloggers, decided to continue on with a challenge. This time it would be a nail art challenge. I choose the theme cartoon/animes to see what kinds of programs we grew up watching.

Anime Revolution came at its peak here in my country during the 90's. This is why most kids know all the animes that are being aired on that time. You can ask people of my generation (gosh,that sounds so ancient!haha) what animes they watched & you'll be surprised with the common answers that they'll be giving you.

I have watched tons & tons of japanese animes & also cartoons before so choosing just 1 is difficult so i just had to make a couple of them!

Presenting my pick of the lot!lol

thumb - Crayon Shin Chan
pointer - Akazukin Cha Cha
middle - Sailormoon
ring - Doraemon
pinkie - Mojacko

You can just click it for a larger image.

I'll tell you about them one by one... hehehe
Please bear with the rambling of an old 'otaku' lady.

Crayon Shin Chan
I remember watching this anime just because i think the graphics are really cute! It's like fresh air compare with all the animes that are very artfully done that i've been watching.

Shin-chan is a very cute, playful but naughty boy! He loves sexy ladies & showing off his 'elephant'. He calls his mama by his name & would even mimic his dad drinking 'sake' (rice wine). He has a white dog named "Shiro", which literally means white in japanese.

If you want a light-hearted anime that would take the drama off of your usual programs then by all means, go search for "Kureyon Shin Chan".

Akazukin Cha Cha - Red Riding Hood Cha Cha
Cha Cha is an elementary student in Urara Gakuen. She is the student of Seravy-sensei, who is supposed to be the world's greatest magician. Her antics together with her friends are so cute to watch that i consider this a timeless anime!

I clearly remember that i was in !st year high school when this was shown just because it was my first time going over to a friend's house to celebrate her birthday party. She immediately turned the TV on because it's "Cha Cha time" already! LOL!

This is a given,ne?
Who would ever forget Usagi-chan? In fact, i don't think i need to make an intro about her just because she is really very popular. If Goku of Dragonball is the famous anime male character before, im sure Usagi of Sailormoon is his counter part!

Now, this i think is an anime that is famous in asia. I'm just not sure if the other countries know him though.
Doraemon is a cat-robot given to Nobita by his grandson with the hopes of being able to help him make the best out of him.

One episode is consist of 3 short skits of Doraemon helping Nobita in a situation by the help of a certain gadget that he would be getting from his pocket. Me likes it!

To my pinay readers, i don't need to explain this to them. they know & love Mojacko by heart,ne? Mojacko was also made by the author of Doraemon, Fujiko Fujio.

Mojacko is an 'alien' from the Planet Moja in search of the hidden treasure! I didn't know that GMA aired this just recently, if i only knew i would still watch it!haha!

Well, there ya go!
I'll have another nail art to show you this Saturday. This nail art challenge that we've cooked up will be up every Thursdays & Saturdays for 12 weeks. So you can expect more nail arts & tutorials too.

I just can't make any tutorial for this nail art because this is obviously hand-painted & didn't follow any procedures at all.

You can check out these ladies doing the same challenge with me:

I hope that you'll have a lucky day!
Jaa ne~!
