Care Bears Countdown Nails Did

4, 3, 2, 1!! I don't know about you, but when I think of my childhood or 80s nostalgia in general I always reminisce about the Care Bears. They were so great! They taught me lots of important things like: Always help your neighbors, you can find a friend in strange places, staring at someone is okay if you're sending them good vibes directly from your tummy, and colourful overly-happy bears live in the sky.

So I picked my favorite bears of the bunch - and really its taking into account that my second favorite bears are the Panda Care Bear cousins Perfect and Polite but since I already did pandas just before this I thought it may be cheating. Also I had a big love on for Grams Bear - who was my equivalent to my ACTUAL Grandma to me anyway.

So my FAVORITE Bear is Birthday Bear. I actually received a plush of him when I was young. I actually think it was my first stuffed toy ever but I'm not sure. He's also to me like Bobo is to Mr. Burns - forever beloved, forever left behind. I have no idea where he is. But I'd like to imagine in some little girls loving arms and not a landfill :(


However, since then Ben went out and bought me a replacement Birthday Bear and surprised me with it. Such a great hubby right?



I used Nubar LLC for the base, China Glaze White on White for the Clouds and various nail art pens for Birthday Bear.


And then we have Cheer Bear on my pointer, Grumpy Bear on my middle, Good Luck Bear on my ring and Tenderheart Bear on my pinky.

I actually forgot all about Funshine Bear - who was also not only one of my favorites, but also my favorite colour yellow, but by that time I had already put my top coat on. Boo.

I love how surprised they all look! Hahaha, what can I say, its hard to do face detail that small :P

And just incase you have no clue what i'm talking about, get a load of the nostalgic awesomeness that is the Care Bears, but not the "Care Bears Family" that I remember the best because all the youtuber's have disabled the embed feature for that intro >:(
