Thanksgiving Nail Art Challenge Day 2 - Charlie Brown

I've been very excited waiting for today! I grew up watching and reading Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang. I didnt have a single notebook or binder in school that did not have Woodstock doodled on it!


Today I am thankful for my friends and co-workers. I dont know how I would get through the day without all of your company!

I only took one picture of today's mani. I find when I get my thumb involved, there are not a whole lot of positions for me to hold my hand that arent redundant. And I dont see the point of posting a bunch of pics of basically the same angle haha!


This is the best nail art I have ever done. I am pretty proud of them, and dont think I will ever top this mani! I should just retire now lmao! Im going to break it down by nail and tell you what I used. There will be some redundancy, my apologies ahead of time! :p

Thumb: A snoozing Snoopy!!!! China Glaze for Audrey as the base, LA Art Deco Red for his house and my black and white Stripe Rites for the details and Snoopy himself.

Pointer: Charlie's exasperated scream, most often seen when Lucy moved the football lol. I used OPI Alpine Snow as the base and my black Stripe Rite for the "AAUGH!"

Middle: My favorite Peanuts character, Woodstock. It is a lot harder to doodle him on a nail than a notebook! China Glaze For Audrey as the base, Orly Instant Artist Yellow Submarine is Woodstock himself with my black Stripe Rite and FingerPaints Striper in Art Hue Serious? for the grass.

Ring: The iconic Charlie Brown sweater. The perfect yellow just happened to be a striper, that was fun painting my nail with that thin brush! FingerPaints Master Muse is the base, and once again I used my black Stripe Rite for the accent.

Pinky: Psychiatric Help 5 Cents. My favorite parts of any Charlie Brown story are all of Lucy's shenanigans. Maybe it's because I have always been a bit "Lucy" in real life (at least I can admit it, right? haha). I couldnt do a Charlie Brown tribute without representing it! The base is Deborah Lippmann's Almost Paradise and I used (you guessed it) my black Stripe Rite to write it out.

What are you thankful for today?
