Pokemon Nail Art Challenge: Fire

So sorry this post is so late... normally I have my manicure posts done much earlier in the week. I'm very sensitive to the weather so basically if it changes at all, I'm feeling awful. This week our weather was pretty awful in those regards and it actually left me feeling like I had the flu for the majority of the week. I'm just now starting to feel a little bit better.

This is the second week in our Pokemon challenge, which means it's Fire time! I had no question as to which Pokemon I wanted to do, because when I think of fire, I think of one of my very first starter Pokemon: Charizard! I love dragons, so naturally when I picked up Fire Red, Charmander was my pick as a starter. Even before I played the video games though, I loved Charizard from the cartoon. There was this running gag on the show that each time Ash picked Charizard, he would flat out ignore Ash (and often turn his flames on Ash for wasting his time.) I always thought this was hilarious :D

Here's what Charizard looks like for those who may not know.
Here's a picture of a shiny Charizard because yes, I did a shiny Charizard on my nails as well!
Here's my shiny Charizard nails... and I'm holding my Charizard plushie! (thanks mom!)

For this manicure I used a ton of different polishes:
Essie Wicked
Sally Hansen Ionic Indigo (a magnetic polish but I didn't use the magnet of course)
my first franken
Zoya Freja
Zoya Arizona
Sally Hansen White Tip
Simple Pleasures no name polish, it's a pinkish color and I used it only for the tongues.
Kiss Nail Art Black
Zoya Pippa
Zoya Paz

This challenge has been so much fun and I'm really looking forward to next week's challenge because I get to do another of my favorite Pokemon, and it's my element - Water!

Thanks for reading & have a great weekend!


  1. Amazing! You need a double thumb shot of charizard vs shiny charizard! :)

    I love charizard in the animé too! Especially the bit where he gets hurt and realises how much Ash cares for him!

    1. I was thinking that, too.. may have to get my boyfriend to take a picture of it :D

  2. awesome! The fire is just perfect!!! :) And your charizards are so great! I love that you did a shiny charizard, I love its colour!
