Crumpet's Laid-Back 31DC: Inspired by a Game


Today's challenge prompt is "Inspired by a Game." Oh, the possibilities... When you say "game", I naturally think of video games -- a favorite past time of mine since I was a child. So, since I'm not so good at freehand nail art, I had to come up with a simple idea that I knew I could pull off. This one has been done many times before, in fact, I had the idea during the last challenge but opted for more traditional ghosties. Pac-man ghosties have been on my "to do" list of nail art since then! So, here are they are!

Pac-Man Ghosts! Indoors, artificial light, no flash.
Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde are all here in Zoya Sooki, OPI Party In My Cabana, China Glaze For Audrey, and Zoya Arizona, respectively. I started with a base of Seche Clear and then used craft scissors to cut the wavy pattern into the tape I put at the tips to create their ghostly shapes. One thick coat of each polish followed. I used the end of a bobby pin to make the eyes with Konad Special Polish in White and China Glaze Splish Splash. It may not have been an original idea, but I think they turned out rather cute!

More soon! ^_^
