Crumpet's Laid-Back 31DC: Inspired by Your Childhood


Today's Laid-Back Challenge prompt is "Inspired by Your Childhood". If there's one thing I remember clearly about being little, it is watching a lot of the Care Bears. So, I've taken my inspiration from that for this prompt. My Care Bears inspired skittles represent one bear each. This mani started with a base of Seche Clear and finished with a thick coat of NYC In a New York Minute.

Outdoors, natural light, no flash.
On my pointer finger, Grumpy Bear is represented by two coats of OPI I Don't Give A Rotterdam! and one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Boop-Oop-A-Doop. I used a dotting tool and Contrary Polish Santorini to make the cloud and raindrops. Two red heart-shaped rhinestones finish the look.

Next is Funshine Bear with two coats of Sinful Colors Unicorn and one coat of INM Northern Lights. A round, yellow rhinestone and sun rays done with Barielle Lemondrops complete it.

Zoya Arizona plus one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Boop-Oop-A-Doop for Friend Bear on my ring finger. Yellow flower-shaped rhinestones and a few swipes of Zoya Midori for stems complete the flower design.

Tenderheart Bear is represented on my pinkie finger. I started with two coats of Zoya Sooki topped with one coat of Nail pattern Boldness Boop-Oop-A-Doop. A red heart-shaped rhinestone mimics the red heart on his belly.

This was a fun challenge prompt. It brought back lots of fond memories! More soon! ^_^
