Geek Series – Minesweeper!


I was playing this while procrastinating instead of blogging and I thought. hey why not put these on nails?!?

Colours used:

‘White on white’ by Revlon, ‘Blackout’ by Rimmel, ‘Sunkissed’ by Models own, ‘Spring Green’ by Barry M, ‘Red Carnation’ by LA Colour, ‘Rapid Ruby’ by Rimmel, ‘Blue Asphalte’ by Borjour, ‘Blue eyed girl’ by Rimmel and ‘Grey Matter’ by Rimmel.

More photos under the cut.

I started by painting all of the nails grey for the background colour on al of the nails. Then starting at the thumb, i drew the smiley face that sits above the game in it’s little box.

For the rest of the nails i drew a grid on them all, for the game itself. And within this started placing around the flags and numbers. I used to suck at this game when i was little but i’m getting better at it now i’m happy to say.

I also included some flags and bombs as well as the numbers alerting you to how many bombs are in the area.

And on the little finger, I have the counter. Just red numbers in a black box. It’s best to do the red first then use the black after to form the letters otherwise the red isn’t as bright against it.

I hope you have fun recreating this look.
