The Digit-al Dozen DOES Decades, Day 3: Nintendo Nail Art!

In Digit-al Dozen, Nails, OPI by Jacki14 Comments

Mr. Adventures In Acetone and I are 80’s babies, so I asked his opinion to think of something to do for 80’s nail art. He immediately thought of Nintendo video games! Who hasn’t played some kind of Nintendo Super Mario Brothers video game in their lifetime? I’m pretty sure we even have a Mario game for our Nintendo Wii in Hailey’s room. So, here is my nail art attempt at one of the controllers for the original Nintendo and a scene from Super Mario Brothers.

I’m not 100% happy with how these turned out, the lines were particularly messy but I was having a crazy morning and tried to pull through and get this mani done for the challenge anyway. I almost attempted Mario himself, but he was so pixelated back then that it seemed pretty hard on such a small scale.
I love this Super Mario Bros. nail art look my friend Ashley (from Ashley Is Polish Addicted) did a while back with adorable characters so check it out! I don’t think the characters were as cute as hers with this original game version so I stuck with this little mushroom guy.

What do you think? I’m excited for this challenge and can’t wait to see what I come up with for tomorrow! Thanks again for reading!
