Geek Nail Challenge Day 2 - Television & Movies

I decided to do a mani based on a suggestion from a good friend of mine - this one's for you, Benny!  One of our favorite pasttimes is to sit around watching episode after episode of Mr. Bean, along with my husband. That guys just cracks the three of us up. So, I decided to try to translate this onto my nails. At first, I really didn't even know where to start, but this is what I came up with.

The Reliant Robin that Bean can't stand
My attempt at drawing Mr. Bean peaking around a wall :/
One of my favorite episodes: Mr. Bean's new chair! :)
Bean's teddy.
Another shody attempt at drawing his crazy face. Meh.
In my head, these nails were spectacular. It is so hard to get as detaiuled as you need to get when trying to recreate something from a movie or television. Unless it is a cartoon, it's impossible to recreate the stuff we see on TV. These nails do still make me giggle when I look at them though, so I guess that is good.

I am just going to list out all of the colors I used for this:
  • essie meet me at sunset
  • Finger Paints Sketchy Character
  • Julep Jessica
  • Julep Harley
  • Misa What A Wonderful Day
  • Orly Instant Artist in Jet Black
  • Pure Ice Super Star!
  • Pure Ice Kiss Me Here
  • Sinful Colors Nirvana
  • Zoya Pippa
  • Zoya Lo
  • Zoya Wednesday

Thank you so much for looking!

  2. LOL! I love Mr. Bean, such a fun mani

  3. Wow, that really looks like him on the thumb! I've never watched it but I know of the actor - great job!

    1. You think so?! Maybe I was being too hard on myself. Thank you!

  4. Good Job and you had fun which it the point right? I agree it is very hard to take something from TV and not make it look cartoon.
