They Came From Space


Day 58

Today's nails are dedicated to the first video game I ever played. EVER. SPACE INVADERS!!!! It was a pain in the ass to paint the little squares, and I had to start over on a few nails, but I'm super excited with how they turned out! Plus, thanks to Wikipedia, I just found out that the company I work for used to hold the license for the game! Crazy!!



I used China Glaze Liquid Leather for the base, Barielle Sweet Addiction for the thumb, which might I add, is one of my first Barielle polishes (I bought the other day when they were on sale), and it is amazing, super opaque with just one coat, and a BEAUTIFUL color. I think I'm in love. For the index finger, I used China Glaze Salsa mixed with China Glaze White on White to get the pink, Zoya Yummy for the middle finger, Zoya Pippa for the ring finger, and Barielle Grape Escape mixed with China Glaze White on White for the pinky! :) I topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat so the little buggers couldn't go anywhere. :-P

  5. AH!! I love the Pacman idea! You should have Mr.Pacman on one thumb and Mrs. on the other. Have the little guys that follow you around on the rest of the fingers! :D

  10. I agree, I like the short nails rather than the longer ones.

  12. Awesome! Your new length gives me hope for my short nails! Do you ever do Konads when they're short or is it impossible?
    (I think I remember hitting the "Hyperspace" button pretty much constantly on Space Invaders...)

  13. Please disregard my question above, as I answered my own question-you did a Konad on your shorter nails with the gorgeous Reclaim/Forest combo; so I have to just quit fretting and go for the darn Konad, already.
    I can always hit "hyperspace"...

  15. Whow! That's so nice.
    I'm from Barcelona, Spain.
    So, If I make any mistake, please, forgive me.

    One person talks me about this, and I'm really surprised, because you are very good.
    Your nails are incredible.
    Well... I'll be waiting for your nails.
