NCC presents: Totoro nail art

Have you seen the Japanese cartoon (child?) movie "My neighbor Totoro"? Well, I saw it and found out about it when I was 22 and honestly I'm not as fascinated in it as some people seem to be. However I think Totoro makes out as a nice nail art theme and also fits the theme for the Nail Challenge Collaborative which happens to be animals.

Animal nail art is a favorite of mine, and if we skip my numberous amount of zebra/leo patterned nail art, I've also done crabs, lemurs, pandas, rabbits, bears, cows, pigs, foxes, white muted swans, cats, chickens, frogs, reindeers, flamingos, parrots, merlions, hoopoe birds, black swans and yea Mickey mouse.

So back to the nail art, basically Totoro is a "made up animal", described as a huge rabbit looking animal, a forest creature, forest protector or forest spirit. I've also done the two "mini-totoro's" and if you remember the movie you also understand the symbolism with the blue glitter gradient, hint; rain ;) On my right hand I did some needle dragging.  I really liked my colors here and this was a nail art I had on for several days.

    (and adding an animal to your list, the very first post of you I read, the one when I first found your blog was a dart poison frog, you even made a tutorial to my request!! I tried myself but never succeeded ...)
