o all boxing lovers out there, Pac-man is not Manny Pacquiao! :P
Good morning! Nail Art tutorial for the week! Yes, I'm still on a gaming mode and this time, it's a classic game most of us grew up with from Namco Games! I actually do not like playing this game because I feel like peeing all over due to tension! *sorry for the Tuesday grossness hahaha* But yeah, I could never go far because the ghosts are toooooo fast!!!
Here's my Pac-man game inspired nails
I used Zoya Basecoat Anchor to protect my nails from yellowing. Apply 2 coats of The Face Shop nail color in BL604. You can opt to use plain black polish but I don't have it.
On most nail art designs, make sure the base color are completely dry before you proceed. I used L.A. Art Deco in Light Blue to create random lines like that of the Pac-man game.
Step 3: "Cherry"
Pac-man likes to eat the cherry for extra points, I actually like cherries on nails so I've done 2 dots using Prettynails 2-way nail art pen in Bright red.
Used Nature Republic Nail Polish in apple green to create the stems.
To create a 3-dimensional looking cherries, I lined white polish on the cherry itself just like photo below.
Step 4: Pellets
Using light yellow polish from BNC and nail art dotting tool in its smallest size, I drew random dots as pellets for our dear Pac-man to eat
Step 5: Speedy a.k.a. "Pinky"
The closest color I own to create "Pinky" is the Essie polish in Splash of Grenadine. I carefully create a dot first with the brush then gently form the "legs" of the ghost.
Making sure the "ghost base" is dry, using a dotting tool, create 2 dots beside each other for the eyes.
To complete the eyes, dot a tiny black dot using Prettynails' 2 Way Nail Art Pen in black.
Step 6: Bashful a.k.a. "Inky"
Similar as step 5, I used Essie Polish in Turquoise & Caicos
Making sure the green shade is totally dry, dot on 2 white dots to create the eyes....
Also finish it with black dot to complete the eyes
Step 7: Pac-Man!
The tiny pac-man is quite challenging to do without a brush! I am too lazy to use a separate brush so I opted to use the brush from the polish itself. I used Elianto's Bright yellow polish for this.
With a lighter yellow color from BNC, I drew dots for pellets in which Pac-man readily eats :)
Step 8:To create a more "outer space" experience, I used the Winmax polish that has nice hint of glitters to top the entire design!
Protect the playful nail art design with Zoya Topcoat UV Block Armor, applying even the tips of the nails to prevent nail polish from chipping.
If you have the time, do your toe nails too!
Are you good at playing PAC-man?
