Today’s prompt, the supernatural, was a bit difficult for me. I’m not into scary things (I’m such a crybaby at horror movies, it’s ridiculous) and dragons and phoenixes are too difficult to paint in miniature. I then thought of ghosts, but that seemed far too clichéd. And then it hit me: what if I went tongue-in-cheek, and did Pacman ghosts. And so it went.
To create my classic arcade-inspired nails, I started off by painting all of my nails with two coats of Love and Beauty Black. I then took Sinful Colors Snow Me White and drew the outlines of Pacman with his dots on my thumb and the 4 ghosts, Inky, Pinky, Blinky, and Sue, on my other fingers. I filled in the designs with white to make sure that the colors would stand out against the black. Once that had dried, I filled in Pacman and the dots with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow, Inky with a mix of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away and Mint Sorbet, Pinky with a mix of Love and Beauty Pink Creme and Snow Me White, Blinky with e.l.f. Smokin’ Hot, and Sue with Mellow Yellow and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed. Once those colors dried, I put little white dots on the ghosts for eyes, and put a black dot inside of them. And Pacman has come to life on my nails! Pictures below are without topcoat.
So it’s not quite spooky or scary, but it sure is cute! ^__^ Sue is a little cross-eyed, but hey, she was always the odd one out xD Let me know if you like Pacman too in the comments below!
