Hey there! Today I have my fourth post for The Nail Challenge Collaborative's Video Games theme. For my final mani I decided to go with Toad from Super Mario Brothers! I always thought Toad was super cute and decided it would be a fun mani idea!
I started with a clear basecoat as I knew there would be negative space in this mani. I used my go to base coat, Nailtiques Formula 2.
Then I painted my tips white on three nails using Rica Whiteout. On the fourth nail I painted a thicker tip with Zoya Avery.
I used Zoya Red Door Red to paint the stripe on three nails and Toad's head on my ring finger. I used a black Color Club Art Club striper for the eyes. Using a dotting tool I did Toad's dots on the mushroom cap and the whites of his eyes using Rica Whiteout. I finished it with KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat.
You can see I had a little smearing on my middle and pinky fingers when I applied the topcoat, but besides that I love how this turned out. Toad is super cute...see what I did there!
What was your favorite of my four video game looks? Have you tried any of the looks I did?
