Pacman in action!

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!!

Evening Skyline on My Nails!

It’s bright sunny (Sun)day now but what I’m gonna show you today is my new nail art called… Evening Skyline!! This nail art design is inspired by cutepolish! I love her tutorials!! read on and I’ll share the link of her video at the end of my post! (No cheating! Don’t scroll down immediately! >_<)

20131116-230426.jpg

Looks messy here? Of course it is messy! Had used acrylic paint here to create the evening look – acrylic paint and sponging method! It is advisable that you paint a layer of white polish first before sponging your colors so that the color stay true.

20131116-230510.jpg

Clean up your stained cuticle using a cotton bud! You can DIY one using your orange stick if you don’t have one. Just pick some cotton using your orange stick from a cotton pad and roll them up to look like a bud!

cottonbud

It won’t look to far from a cotton bud! 🙂 & you can just throw away the used cotton after your clean up. Orange stick? Keep for next use!

20131116-230610.jpg

So after your clean up, you can grab your black polish and start to paint your CITY SKYLINE! Just apply one stroke downwards and apply at different “level” to create the difference in building height!

20131116-230620.jpg

Building lights? Easy!! Just dot yellow polish or yellow acrylic paint on your building (black polish) I had actually went an extra step dot my China Glaze Ghoulish Glow on my yellow dot! WHY!? So that when I turn off the light, my nails will glow!!!

………… But apparently, it didn’t glow as bright as I thought because the dot is too small to even “charge”! (T_T)

20131116-230543.jpg

Next up, the moon is the challenging part for me! Because it has to be precise and neat! but oh well.. lucky it went quite alright for me.. at least for my left hand!

20131116-230641.jpg

Result? .. Not that bad uh.. LOL! (>_<)

So as promised, Here’s the video! (You didn’t scroll down directly uh..!?!)

My Sunset Bay!

Hi guys! Been a while since i last show you some cute toe nails design! I youtube’d some video and thought that this is pretty easy to do even though I might not have all the colours!

IMG_6036

Are you able to tell what color I’d used in this nail art? In this nail art, the only polish color I used was a white polish from China Glaze (white on white). The rest of the colors? Acrylic paint of course! Yellow… Orange… Red.. & Black!

IMG_6038

To get this effect, all u need is a makeup sponge and use the sponging method to do it! I’ll include a video shortly at the end of the post where you can learn and DIY! My nail art was also inspired by the video from SimpleNailArtDesigns!

IMG_6037

See! It’s beautiful! If i’m going holiday with this nail art, it would makes it PERFECT!! Beach~ Resort~ Sunset~ Ahhhhhh…. Why am I still sitting here?

So without further ado.. Here’s the video tutorial by SimpleNailArtDesigns!

Penguins on the run!

It’s a cooling evening and i decided to do something COOL! A cool penguin!! Sorry, i mean 5 cool penguins! I watched a few tutorial and decided to go with this..

It’s not VERY ALIKE but it’s some where there already! Below you’ll see that i did not go with the “all black” nail color.. I chose to paint my nails all different color so that i can have a variety of penguins!

20130811-133013.jpg

I picked out a few vibrant color from my stash and ….. tadaa~!

The Original – Black Onyx

The Lady – High Hope

The Gentleman – Secret Peri-Wink-Le

The Boy – Vert Chlorophylle

The Sunshine – Happy Go Lucky

20130811-132952.jpg

This is a really simple nail art.. you(I) just need MORE PRACTICE! Seeing this little cuties really makes my day but too much of them makes me feel eerie.. So many penguins looking at u… gosh!

20130811-133007.jpg

Btw, the orange beak and feet are achieve by using nail paint (orange + white).. Seriously, I think I really like using nail paint to draw! They are sooo easy to use and dry within a reasonable time!

20130811-133021.jpg

So after my drawing is done.. I seal them with a top coat like how the tutorial did… 20130811-133029.jpg

20130811-133036.jpg

Cool penguins? I think i will do this again some day but with lesser penguin maybe?? hahaha!

This is a short post because i think what i need to say has been explained in the video! Check out SimpleNailArtDesigns on youtube for more cute nail art videos!!

Have some ice cream?

Heeelloooo! Today, I’m so excited to share with you a cute polish that was inspired by Cutepolish!

Do you prefer to view the video first!!? i think the video is very clear and she made steps so simple to achieve!!

So after watching her video, i started to dig out all my tools and colours! This time round, i used only 1 nail polish colour and the rest are nail paint (is this the term used??)! I nearly forgot i’d bought this nail paint quite some time back in 2012! So, now we can start!!

20130506-230800.jpg

Like what was advised, a based coat is a must to protect your nails! after base coat, i applied OPI’s Sparrow me The Drama (Pirates of the Caribbean Collection)! This is the lightest pink i have in my stash!

20130506-230858.jpg

Ain’t that bad.. still looks like my strawberry ice cream after my matt top coat! Got my matt top coat from Etude House (it was about S$10 i think..) Just a reasonable coat and you can see you ice cream foaming! LOL~ BTW, does top coat affects the colour? Because i feels that this pink looks lighter after i applied my matt top coat. It looks much darker in the bottle.. *ponder*

20130506-231839.jpg

So with my nail paint, i start to dot the chocolate sauce like how cute polish does it! Not that bad.. this nail paint are pretty opaque and dries quite fast..! Although my chocolate sauce ain’t very good looking but i think my sprinkles looks worst! hahahaha!!!

20130506-232103.jpg

But with the top coat, A GOOD TOP COAT, it looks much better now! At least the chocolate sauce looks more like a chocolate sauce now – tho the sprinkles din look any better! hahaha!

20130506-232927.jpg

Looking from far, i think it’s great!!! hahahahaha!! Try to do your chocolate sauce today and start admiring them!

You can follow cutepolish from HERE (youtube) or HERE (facebook) for great nail art design!!!
