Domo-kun!

I got the idea for this over at Gizmodo (http://gizmodo.com/5628965/nail-painting-gallery/gallery/2). The original artist’s nails are definitely nicer than mine, but I tried! 😀

At first I wanted to do all ten fingers too, but I changed my mind because I was short on time. Plus I fail at doing my right hand!

Anyhoo, I first tried to replicate this design by just putting the mouth red on top of the brown, but that did not work because the red wasn’t that opaque. So what I did was I first brushed on a square of red (Sally Hansen X-Treme Wear in Cherry Red) and then brushed on a warm brown (Etude House in Choco Slushi 초코 슬러시) all around it. I then used a tiny disposable nail art brush to dot on the teeth in white (Wet n’ Wild in French White Creme). Lastly I dotted the eyes on in black (VOV Chamon Nail Pop #3901) and dotted white on top after they dried. A topcoat went over everything, but unfortunately the white streaked a bit because I didn’t wait long enough for it to dry. 😦

The rest of my nails are a cool taupe shade (Holika Holika #03 Medium 미디움) that sets off domo-kun.
