Ponyo nails

Shortly after doing my Totoro nails, I got an itch to tackle another Studio Ghibli film! Ponyo is such a sweet story with a charming take on the story of the little mermaid. Ponyo is so cute and expressive as a goldfish/tadpole/chicken-legged thing! Unfortunately there aren't any little creatures in Ponyo that are relatively easy for me to paint, like little totoros and makkuro kurosukes. So instead I opted for a more abstract look. I hope you can tell which nail is for what :D

The thumb and little finger are easy; it's Ponyo and all her sisters! If I were to do this again, I'd put a little more effort into the background instead of just a solid colour. The ring finger is Sosuke with his bowl cut, yellow shirt, and dark green-grey shorts. The middle finger is Ponyo with her rusty-coloured hair, pink dress, and bloomers, although the mop of hair kind of blends into the pink too much. The index finger is Fujimoto's striped suit and cravat :>

Polishes used:
  • China Glaze For Audrey (base turquoise colour on little finger and thumb)
  • Lise Watier Chic Tartan (deep khaki for Sosuke's "shorts")
  • Essie Too Taboo (bright fuchsia for triangle on index finger)
  • Clinique Summer in the City (bright coral pink for Ponyo's dress)
  • Clinique 70° and Sunny (yellow block on ring finger)
  • Clinique Splish Splash (blue striping for index finger)
  • OPI Alpine Snow (base white for middle and index fingers)
  • acrylic paints (skin, hair, and dress for the schools of Ponyos; hair for middle finger Ponyo)
  • Black liquid acrylic (black stripe on ring finger)

As always, it was fun to do and a good learning experience. I wonder what I should do next? Spirited Away?
