Oh man, I'm barely in time to post the second challenge mani of this week, but I made it! I had big plans for this game theme, but in the end I just had to quickly do something in order to get it done at all.
The mani looks quite rushed and that's exactly how it was done, but in any case, at least I managed to do something. I think that my inspiration game(s) for the mani is (hopefully) quite obvious. I haven't really had time to play any type of games lately, but usually if I do find time to play some video games, it's one of the Super Marios for Wii. So it was quite obvious choice for me to use it as an inspiration for this game themed manicure.
Like I said, I had big plans of doing a more elaborate manicure and I was going to use Super Mario Galaxy as my inspiration, but in the end I didn't have time for that, so I just chose something pretty easy and quick from the games and painted some 1ups on my nails.
I used two coats of Essie Blanc as my base color. Then I did the faces of the shrooms with Essence I Nude It and the eyes with Essie Licorice and Blanc. For the green parts I used a mix of Essie Ruffles & Feathers and Mojito Madness and for the dots I used again Essie Blanc. I painted the 1ups with a small nail art brush (from Mereneid) and used a dotting tool for the dots.
