Hi, everyone! Recently a nail group I’m part of held a nail art contest with the theme being video games. Now, I’m not a huge gamer. I was pretty big into N64 games back in the day and I’ve played a few others here and there but it’s not super my thing so I didn’t have much to pick from!
I do like RPGs but don’t have the patience for them anymore. Played AION from launch for about 2 years, left shortly after it went F2P. Have never been able to play FPS- anytime someone starts shooting at me I forget all the controls and usually throw the controller. So, uh yeah. Not a gamer!
Originally I was planning on doing something inspired by Lulu from FFX but I didn’t have quite the perfect purple & grey shades so I scrapped that idea. The other game I don’t play often but have loved since I was a weeaboo teenager was DDR! I never got super good at it (could only beat a couple songs on medium, mainly stuck to light…yep, I suck! No hand-eye coordination whatsoever) but it was still fun! I mainly played in the arcade in the mall near here, but I also had the soft dance pad at home (I wasn’t hardcore enough to shell out for the hard pad).
Anyways, so I decided to do DDR arrows! I used this photo as color inspiration since they are always different at different levels:
I started with a base of one coat of Zoya Wednesday. For the arrows on the index and ring finger I used Zoya Robyn, Zoya Pinta and Zoya Lael. For the middle and pinkie I used Zoya Sooki, China Glaze Riveting (I know, I broke the Zoya streak, I don’t have any oranges from them!) and Zoya Creamy. I used white acrylic paint for the inside of the arrows & black for the outside and finished everything off with a top coat of Out The Door!
What do you think? Are you any good at DDR? What were your favorite songs? I really liked Saints Go Marching, Butterfly (duh, like everyone), Little Bitch and Only You. Let me know yours in the comments!
