The Lorax Nails, For all Dr. Seuss Fans!

Hi everyone! Today I have a Dr. Seuss inspired mani to show you all. The idea came about when I was walking in my shopping centre and saw a light advert about the movie 'The Lorax' and I thought he looked funny so decided to do some nails based on him!

I think the colours were great together and there's a little Lorax on the middle finger. I wish I had drawn his face to begin with, but now that I see all them fluffy things on stalks, I was happy that I drew him small, standing on a post :)

Everything was hand drawn and I was surprised I was able to get the lining so thin in certain areas. Kudos to my brush!

Here are the pics!




Btw, I changed my watermark! It was something I drew on paper and then just cut out very badly in Photoshop, so when I have the time, I will definitely fix that up! Thankfully they're used on a smaller scale so they don't look too terrible hehe

Anyways, what do you think of these? Let me know below! Think my next mani will be that caviar one... can't wait!

  8. Wow, you did an amazing job. The colors you used are great together, the style of the image on each finger is spot on Dr. Seuss style illustration but what I'm really impressed with is how well you outlined everything in black! I can't imagine what that must have been like but it looks so perfectly done. Just WOW. And it's so cute to boot!

    By the way, is that China Glaze Aquadelic as the base color?

    Fantastic work!

    1. I didn't since I didn't have a lot of time - was gonna paint 'Dr. Seuss' on it instead, but I didn't find the time to do it and really wanted to do the caviar mani!
