C is for Cookie

8:00:00 AM

Cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C!!!!!  Ahhh Sesame Street, who didn't love that show as a child?!  Who wouldn't give anything to go back to the good old days where you would lay around watching Elmo, Cookie Monster, Oscar, Burt & Ernie, Big Bird, and the rest of the gang wander around that awesome place singing or doing whatever.  That show, along with Lamb Chop and Mr. Rogers were the shows I constantly watched.  I'm not sure how my parents put up with it, but they did.

Sadly though, Lamb Chop and Mr. Rogers Neighborhood have gone by the wayside, and kids are watching new shows like Dora the Explorer and the Backyardigans.  Both I find equally annoying.  I love though that despite all these new shows, one stands strong...Sesame Street is still loved.

I attended a first birthday party which was Sesame Street themed.  Of course I jumped on the opportunity to paint my nails to match the party theme.  I have seen on other blogs and YouTube cookie monster nails, so I figured, it was my turn to take part.





Colors Used:

  • Cookies
    • Zoya - Avery
    • Sinful Colors - Nirvana
  • Cookie Monster!
    • Sally Hansen XTreme Wear - Blue Me Away! (Broke my no buy for this)
    • Sinful Colors - Black on Black
    • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
To create the cookies, I painted on the base of Avery.  Once that was dry, I took my dotting tool and dotted on uneven spots to resemble chocolate chips.

To create Cookie Monster, I painted on a base coat of Blue Me Away, which is by far the most amazing blue polish ever!  So bright and fun.  With one coat I had full coverage, but decided to put on two since I really wanted the blue to stand out.  Then, with a toothpick, I outlined Cookie Monster's mouth.  I made the top of his mouth a little uneven since he's a hairy lil monster.  Then with the dotting tool, I added some googly eyes.

Easy, simple, cute, and brought me back to my childhood, what is there to hate about these nails!?  Maybe I'll attempt Elmo in the near future :)
