Pacman Nail Art Tutorial

I’m a big fan of retro games and after a weekend of nostalgia at the arcade decided I was inspired. Here’s my tutorial on how to create a cool retro Pacman Nail Art look- you can see the monsters and Pacman evident above. You can change the colours if you like when you attempt this at home- I was trying to stay fairly true to the actual colours, but I reckon spicing it up might be fun. What do you think?

Eek Nails! Tutorial

1. Start with a good base coat ( I like CiateUnderwear for this) for a nice clean base.

3. Take a black and white polish ( I used Stargazer here) and a toothpick. Apply two fine white lines down the centre of each nail.
4. Take the black polish and a clean toothpick and dot a tiny black dot on the end.
5. Seal with a top coat- love Ciate Speed Dry.

Hoem nail art kits have become pretty big businesslately and Orly are entering the UK market with the Instant Artist Nail Art Collection.
