Gotta catch 'em all!

"I wanna be the very best,
     like no one ever was.
          To catch them is my real test,
               to train them is my cause. . ."

Eh, eh? Know what I'm singing? It's Pokemon! (If you've never heard of it. . .what rock have you been living under?!)

I've been crocheting different Pokeball hats for my brother (I've done a Pokeball, Master Ball, and a Dive Ball so far), and as I was finishing up a hat, it hit me- do a Pokeball mani! Dur!

Let me tell you right now, my freehand is horrendous. So yes, my mani is sloppy. But I got the job done.

Love this mani! If you can name the balls I chose to paint (without googling it), then you are a true Pokefan!! Also, you're a nerd like me. Be proud, nerds!

One comment- I am a fan of the original 151 Pokemon and I'm ok with Johto ones, but every single one that was created after that. . . *shakes head* No thank you. Too much, too crazy for my taste.


  1. Love this!! I am a huge Pokemon fan, haha. But I love the new ones too. Well, most of them, anyway. I mean Piplup is adorable, how can you not love him? I am excited for Black/Whtie - I still play each new game that comes out. Yea, I am that much of a nerd. :)

  2. Ok yes, he is super adorable. And so is Turtwig. (Chimchar. . .nowhere near as cute as Charmander). I play each game that comes out too! Nerds together!

  3. I like it! Haha I can't name the balls, I totally share your opinion, the first season of pokémon was nice, but the 1000 other seasons of pokemon.. No it's nothing for me :)!

  4. OMG! I love this mani! I've been a Pokemon fan since the first games came out. I'm excited for Black and White to come out..even though the original games will always be my favourites. Nerds unite! =)

  5. I love them! <3

    I just opened this page and my little brother was standing beside me and he was like "WOAH! Coolest nails ever! You should do that!" and then he started naming all the different pokeballs :)

    Oh! and I came to tell you that you have an award waiting for you on my blog! www.northernnails.blogspot.com

    Oh and you should totally post pictures of the hats! I'd love to see them and marvel at your mad crochet skillz :P

  6. Master ball, Pokeball, Ultra Ball and Great Ball!

    HAHAHAHA I'm such a nerd, but seriously. I *just* found your blog and had to subscribe and add you to my blog roll. What adorable nails!

    And I agree on the original Pokemon... I was playing Pokemon Blue on my Gameboy Colour earlier, because I'm just cool like that.
