For some reason, I had the idea to do some Pacman nail art, so I went with it. I figured it would be bright, colorful, and fun, and it is indeed just that! Since there are four "ghosts," and Pacman, it was perfect for five different nails.

I tried to pick colors as close as possible to the original arcade Pacman. I used a light pink and orange, but my yellow, cyan, and red aren't really that bright. But close enough, right?
I started off by painting each nail a solid color for each character. The ghosts are named Inky (blue), Pinky (pink), Blinky (red), and Clyde (orange). I figured the one named Pinky was perfect for the pinkie nail. I also didn't give Pacman an eye since he didn't have any in the game graphics, but added one of the pellets in front of his mouth.
From left to right, we have Pacman (Ulta - Sun-sational), Inky (Ulta - Mint Condition), Clyde (Zoya - Arizona), Blinky (OPI - Red), Pinky (Essie - Cascade Cool). I then added the black at the bottom, and dotted them some eyes with white and then blue. I used blue instead of black, keeping to the original arcade colors.
Above: my arsenal! Wet n Wild - Black Creme, Ulta - Sun-sational, Ulta - Mint Condition, OPI - Red, Revlon - Royal, Zoya - Arizona, Essie - Cascade Cool, Wet n Wild - French White Creme.
Once again, I had fun doing some nail art. I think they're a bit crazy, but I felt the need to do something a little more on the "nerdy" side than usual. I admit I didn't make my right hand match this time, but I did use the same colors, so at least my right hand has a Skittles manicure now!
