Comedy - As Seen On TV Theme Week

As Seen On TV theme week continues and today it's time for some comedy nails. This was one of the themes I was especially waiting for since I've been wanting to do this manicure for quite a while and I had a clear idea of it in my head.

If you've ever watched this show I'm sure it's pretty clear which series I used as an inspiration, it's of course the hilarious 2 Broke Girls. In addition to The Big Bang Theory (nails of it done here already) 2 Broke Girls is definitely one of my favorite comedy TV series, I love the humor in it! This manicure that I did inspired by the show isn't probably very unique as I'm sure pretty much all the manicures about the show will have these same elemets, but then again, it's certainly recognizable.

For my index and pinky nails I took the inspiration (obviously) from the hidious waitress uniforms. I didn't want to interpret them too literally, so I just used similar colors and design, but didn't make them look like dresses or anything like that. I used OPI Race Red as my base color (2 coats) and OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana as the yellow. I would have really like to used something more ugly mustard yellow, but I don't really own any polishes of that shade. I also used nail vinyls from Vinyl It Up to do the design.

For my index and ring finger nails I did - of course - some cupcakes because Max's Homemade Cupcakes. I wanted to use different colors for these cupcakes and make them resemble a bit the two leading ladies of the series. So deep and dark colors for Max and soft pastels for Caroline. I used Zoya Margo and Perrie for the purple one and Essie Romper Room and Mint Candy Apple for the pastel one. The base is two coats of Sally Hansen Nail Rehab and the white is OPI Angel With a Leadfoot. I used dotting tool to make those sprinkles and the frosting and finally I added also couple rhinestones to complete the design.

I have to say that I really liked how this manicure turned out and I was quite happy with it! If my mani yesterday wasn't exactly how I pictured it would be, this time I managed to do these nails just as envisioned them in my head. It's not the most original interpretation of the show I'm sure, but it suited the theme and I finally also got to try to do some cupcake nail art since I had never done that before!

Do you guys watch 2 Broke Girls? What are your favorite comedy shows?


  1. Tämä on mulle kyllä ihan täysin vieras sarja, pitää googletella mistä on kysymys :) Ihanat cupcaket kynsillä, niin söpöt! (pastellivärithän ei tunnetusti mua kauheesti kiinnosta :DD )

    1. Suosittelen ehdottomasti, tää on hyvä! :) Oli kyllä mukava päästä vihdoin kokeilemaan noita cupcakeja kynsille, niin monta kertaa oon niitä miettiny, mutta ovat syystä tai toisesta jääneet tekemättä. :)

  2. Kuppikakut on ihan mahtavia! Kuola alko valumaan... :D

  3. Guess I'll have to add this show to my list too (like it's not a looong list already *red-faced*).
    I like how you used contrasting (light/dark) colours for cupcakes to showcase 2 different characters.

    1. This is one of my favorite comedy series right now, so obviously I recommend this very much. It's really quite fun and awesome to watch if you just want something that isn't too serious. :)
      I'm really glad you liked that, I think the colors really suited the characters. :)
