It’s been soooooo LONG since I last try another nail art! Today I’m gonna show you (in my nail art) what the 90s kid have been playing!! ……..The Pac-Man!!
Pac-Man (パックマン Pakkuman) is an arcade game developed by Namco and first released in Japan on 22 May 1980. It was licensed for distribution in the United States by Midway and released in October 1980. Immensely popular from its original release to the present day, Pac-Man is considered one of the classics of the medium, virtually synonymous with video games, and an icon of 1980s popular culture. Upon its release, the game – and subsequent Pac-Man derivatives – became a social phenomenon that sold a large amount of merchandise and also inspired, among other things, an animated television series and a top-ten hit single!
How to play? The player controls Pac-Man through a blue maze, eating pac-dots and fruit. When all pac-dots are eaten, Pac-Man is taken to the next stage. Between some stages one of three intermission animations plays. Four enemies (I usually call them “ghost” – Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde) roam the maze, trying to catch Pac-Man. If any of them touches Pac-Man, a life is lost and the Pac-Man itself withers and dies. When all lives have been lost, the game ends. Of-course this is not as easy as it seems but I’m not gonna go into details of it..
Without further ado, shall I introduce my Pac-Man & Ghost to you?? Heee!! 😀
On my index finger, it’s Oikake a.k.a. Shadow (Blinky), which is the Red Ghost.
On my middle finger, it’s Kimagure a.k.a Bashful (Inky), which is the Cyan Ghost (well, because I don’t have cyan polish so i used alternative closest color..)
On my ring finger, it’s Machibuse a.k.a. Speedy (Pinky), which is the Pink Ghost (I think light pink doesn’t looks good on me so i changed to a lilac polish)
On my lil finger, it’s Otoboke a.k.a Pokey (Clyde), which is the orange Ghost.
In case you’re wondering what the Japanese name means… Here a quick translation:
<Name> – <Meaning>
Oikake – Chaser
Kimagure – Fickle
Machibuse – Ambusher
Otoboke – Stupid
On my thumb, needless to say, he’s our Pakkuman a.k.a. Pac-Man and his pac-dots!! *clap-clap-clap*
My apologies for the super untidy edge, especially on my thumbs! I think I need to put my pair spectacles to good use already! T_T
Anyway, hope you like this Pac-Man design and give it a try too!!
