Gameboy nails


Hi guys, guess my nails! I'm not even sure if you can say that. And the title might've been a big hint haha... but they're gameboy nails :D I made these for a reader who is going to dress up as gameboy for halloween, how cool is that? I thought it was such a fun theme and was beyond excited to work on them. My base color was Essence Got A Secret and I freehanded all the gameboy features with a tiny brush. For the glamorous index finger I used Orly It's Not Rocket Science, it's supposed to be the screen. The screen's kind of green, right? ;-) Anyway, hope you like them and goodnight everybody! :)

Other polishes I've used:
OPI - Dim Sum Plum
China Glaze - Concrete Catwalk

  15. What kind of top coat do you use? And do you have any problems with shrinkage?

  18. Thank you everyone for the comments! They really made me smile, hahah :D

    @queen_carley: The top coat I use is either Seche Vite or Sally Hansen Insta-Dry. SV dries quicker and glossier but can cause shrinkage, so to prevent this you can wrap your tips with the topcoat as well. SH is great too, I like it even better than SV. It dries slightly slower than SV, but I like the thin formula, plus it doesn't cause shrinkage! And it doesn't get thick as fast as SV.
