Little cloud dudes with buckets who like rainbows

Hi! Everyone calm down! I'm alive! OK, so you probably haven't been in a mad panic over my absence, but I'm back anyway. I've been all kinds of busy lately. We're planning a house plus I'm trying to get as much Christmas shopping out of the way now as I can and occasionally attempting to have a social life.

This lil bit of nail art is actually from a much larger picture (with a lot more going on) - the idea is part of a painting that I'll finish one day. I've titled this "Little cloud dudes with buckets who like rainbows". I think that about sums it up. They just want to be colourful. Aww..

This was really fun to do. I had to spread it out over 3 days though to fit it in between other things. On the first day I painted the blue base, two coats of China Glaze Bahamian Escape and topped it with Seche. I love this blue so much. Maybe even more so because it matches my big, fuzzy boy's eyes (as seen in this blog's banner!)

On day 2 I did the clouds. I used dotting tools and China Glaze Recycle, China Glaze White On White, Essie To Buy Or Not To Buy and OPI My Pointe Exactly (mixtures and layers). I added a bit of OPI Pirouette My Whistle on top for some sparkle.

The rainbow and little bucket carrying cloud dudes are painted using fluid acrylic paints and a tiny brush. They were built up in layers of colour (the rainbow was blocked out in white first). Finally I outlined them in black fluid acrylic paint and gave them their eyes, arms and legs.

I think they're so cute and I smile whenever I look at them. I hope they put a smile on your face too! But if for some reason you need more cuteness, here's a picture of my kitty Delilah smelling a flower while I was outside taking pictures of my nails.

Enjoy and happy Thanksgiving to all of you celebrating!

Bonus comic:

My lovely friend and fellow lacquerhead Moana from Ooooo Shiny! asked in the comments below if the little cloud dudes had names, to which I replied they all look the same and probably can't even tell eachother apart. So... I was inspired and made a comic. Enjoy! :D

    1. Oh Moana! I knew you cared! <3. haha. And no, they don't have names. Feel free to name them if you like. The problem is that in the world of little cloud dudes with buckets who like rainbows they all look pretty much the same. Who knows if they can even tell eachother apart..

      "Frank! Frank? Dude I just saw the hottest little piece of fluff.."
      "Lisa"
      "What"
      "I'm Lisa"
      "Oh. Could have sworn you were Frank. Hm.. Yeah. So how YOU doin?"

    2. Bwahaha...oh dang Shannon, now I have a new life ambition. One time in my life I have to go for a drink with you. You manage to make me laugh so hard I choke from across an ocean! I cant begin to imagine what sort of a riot you'd be in person :-)

    3. I'm even more hilarious after a couple drinks! (atleast, that's what I think.)

      If you're ever in New Zealand the drinks will be on me! Lovely country btw. Very nice place to visit ;)

    5. Ooohhh my god this is TOO MUCH! :D Haha, they're so awesome these little dudes. Fantabulous XD

      I actually landed in NZ once on my way to Australia... I lived there for a year back in 2003-04. It was the rugby world cup in Australia that year! I even *ahem* massaged a few guys from the All Blacks, no joke. I was working giving chair massages in Sydney airport and they totally came through our booth. A pretty funny story indeed...

      Who knows, I might just find myself in NZ sometime. With a maori name like mine, it would only make sense!

    1. I am trying to brainwash people with cuteness. I think it's working. Soon my plan will have come to fruition and you'll all be sending me polish, BAHAHA!
