Whew, I've had a hectic week, school work wise. I feel like I haven't posted in ages even though it's been exactly a week. I'm not going to spend much time talking because I have a lot of work to do today. I've got a pile of books sitting on my desk that I have to read for my two history classes, Statistics homework that's only half completed and is due tomorrow, and I'm helping a friend of a friend edit a paper for grad school because she wanted a native English speaker to help her edit it. A busy day, but I don't mind. Sometimes it's good to be busy.
On to the nails. This week I decided to do Pac Man nails. My 2012 planner is the Limited Addition Pac Man Planner that Moleskine put out to celebrate 30 years of the hungry, yellow guy. (What exactly is Pac Man anyway?) I've always liked this simple arcade game, perhaps because Pac Man is always hungry and so am I?
The base color I used is two coats of Color Club Revvvolution. Unfortunately it's been cloudy here for the past couple of days so I wasn't able to photograph this awesome charcoal holographic polish in direct sunlight. I was able to tweak the photos a bit to bring out some of the holographic effect. If it's sunny tomorrow I promise that I'll snap a photo and then show you guys!
I'm very pleased with how this came out. It took me a while to complete however. I'm a slow free-hander. I used a dotting tool for all of the detailing.
Base Color: Color Club Revvvolution
Pac Man: China Glaze Lemon Fizz
Dots: Sally Hansen Wet Cement
The Ghost: Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, N.Y.C 134A, N.Y.C Black Lace Creme
Cherry: China Glaze Hey Sailor!, China Glaze Starboard
That's all for today and thanks for stopping by and reading!
