Studio Ghibli

Inspired by a redditlaqueristas post I decided it was time that I do some Studio Ghibli nails. (Especially since I get a Ghibli movie every Christmas which really wasn’t that long ago.)¬†However I wanted to keep it simple as I have so many projects going on (big surprise there /s) and I didn’t feel like spending 12 hours doing my nails. And it could definitely go on that long. Sometimes I just get kind of, in the zone.

I used sinful color sweet tooth, china glaze fairy dust and acrylic paint. I did my other hand as well but my phone is dead so I need to charge it. I’ll edit this post later¬†with a picture of both hands.

If you don’t recognize the characters it’s Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery Service and the little dudes are little soot sprites from My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away. I drew little star candies with them like in Spirited Away.

The sprites were fairly easy to do, but Jiji’s body was KILLING me. I kept making him WAY too fat because my nail is a bit short. But after a few retries and his ears being a bit less pointy than I’d like I think he turned out alright!
