We can't get over the details in this handcrafted look. The characters! The bending symbols! We're sure the A:TLA creators would approve.

Embrace your inner cartoon character with this deceptively simple look. We love how they subtly incorporate Marge's hair color across the nails.

Spongebob Squarepants

These nails shine with their crazy-realistic depiction of our fave sea creatures. The sparkly striped nails add the perfect amount of glam to this playful look.


You can almost hear the theme song playing in the distance as you admire this iconic nail look. It's perfect for a throwback Thursday ensemble (or to complete a Halloween costume).

Speaking of throwbacks, this Disney Channel hit from the '00s gives us all the nostalgia. We love the incorporation of recognizable peace symbols and flowers alongside cartoon Lizzie.

The Archie adaptation keeps us guessing each week, but there's no question about the fabulousness of these nails. Well, maybe one: where can we get them?
