October Polish Days [Sentimental] - The Muppets

I'm attempting to get involved in more nail communities! One event that sounds pretty cool is Polish Days hosted by Polly Polish! This month's theme is "Sentimental." I had a hard time thinking about what would be a good sentimental thing I could paint.... My parents are building a new house, which means that I have to finally get all of my crap out of their house! After house of digging through really old, dusty junk, I came across a bunch of Muppets stuff. I used to LOVE the Muppets. I'm pretty sure I watched The Muppet Move and The Great Muppet Caper at least one hundred times each. As my sentimental item of the month, I present to you - The Muppets!

I picked a few of my favorite characters: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzy, and Beaker. Hopefully you can tell who is who... As I've explained before, my freehand painting is not that great. But practice makes perfect, I guess. Or maybe bigger nails..?

I started off with some of the glitters from OPI's Muppets collection - Fresh Frog of Bel Air, Excuse Moi, Gone Gonzo, and Divine Swine. Rainbow Connection is on my thumb :)

I won't list out all of the colors I used to paint the characters (waaaay too many). These guys got a little smeary with the topcoat *sigh*. I think they turned out pretty well... They look like 5 year old me painted them, but my painting skills haven't progressed much since then so I guess it's to be expected.


  1. This is adorable- I was obsessed with the Muppets as a child.

  2. I love this! And your painting skills top mine easily. Hee.

  3. Gorgeous. And yes, definitely recognisable :D

  4. This is so amazing! I used to love The Muppets too, but no way I could manage to do that kind of artwork!!

  5. They all look so cute! How adorable the designs are. Great job girl! You have great sense of creativity.
