You don't have to be an anime geek to enjoy these Pikachu nails. All you have to have is a wicked sense of style. I mean, I'm not one for manicures, but I'd love to have my nails creatively adorned with images of my favorite Pokemon. And since these are so skillfully painted, it's hard to do anything but admire the awesomeness that is these Pokemanicures.
The Pikachu nails alternates between close-ups of the cuddly electric critter's face and a wider-angled depiction where you can see the rodent's ears. Heyphoebehey, who painted the glamorous cuticles, also has a collection of other nail patterns on her Tumblr site. Personally, I can't wait until she paints Squirtle onto some lucky person's toenails.
