Wokka Wokka Wokka

I created these Pacman arcade nails for an instagram contest the lovely @brummingbird is throwing.  It ends tomorrow!  The contest had to involve polka dots.  When I think polka dots I think Pacman!  I've seen Pacman nails that are large and take up the whole nail before but I wanted something smaller and more on the tips.  I love how this came out!

I used Essie's Limo-Scene for the nude base, Essie's Licorice for the black tips, Sally Hansen's Brisk Blue for the blue lining, Sally Hansen's Lightening for Pacman and the polka dots, Essie's Really Red with a little bit of added Sinful Color's Bad Chick to make it a lighter red for Blinky, Sally Hansen's Brisk Blue with a little bit of Bad Chick to make it a lighter blue for Inky, Nicole by OPI's Paparazzi Don't Preach for Pinky and Essie's Tarte Deco for Clyde.  Everything was done using my little paint brush set or a tiny dotting tool I have.

All my images are usually stamped with my instagram name @dulllikeglitter but you can always find me here at dulllikeglitter.blogspot.com too!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!  I'm actually thinking about leaving these on for longer than just one day, that must mean I love them.
