Cartoon Nails

Happy Monday!  We got our last blast of winter yesterday and ended up with a little less than an inch of the white stuff.  Don't worry, I'm not complaining :D  I personally took it as Mother Nature's way of telling me "it won't be long till it's back!" :D  Now, before you guys start throwing rotten tomatoes at me, let's move on to the nails ;)

I have been wanting to do this mani from cutepolish since watching the video a few weeks ago when she posted it, but other designs and swatching have taken precedence, for some reason..  That, and I've been kinda lazy, lol!

I used my Gel II Lala Me gel mani as my base colour, then used my Jordana Pop Art Black Mark nail art polish to do the black outline/border around my nails, then Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On and a striper brush to paint the "shine" on my nail.  Topped it off with Julep's matte top coat (which dragged some of my white and black polishes) and I was done!  This was a really easy design to do, and I recommend if you even slightly want to try it, do it!  I love it!! :D

Here is the tutorial:

While my black borders ended up thicker, I still like the way it turned out :)  Have you tried this design?  Post a picture on my Facebook page, I would love to see :D


  1. Love your take on it, super cute!

    1. Thanks Jasmine! The mattified sparkle/holo of Lala Me really adds some character and definition to the look while still keeping it cartoon-y :)

  2. This looks so cute Erica! I love it. I might have to try this one soon. :)

    1. Thanks Bec!! You should try it, it's pretty darn easy! I even did my right hand without too many mishaps :)
