Trying to do nails that look like Tetris has been on my mind for a while. And today Ben reminded me of the idea.
Also, I LOVE Tetris. Its such a time killer. I've always liked those speed puzzle games and a lot of my childhood was wasted challenging my uncle to either Tetris or Dr. Mario. I'd always win of course.
So I used a lot of colours for this so I'll just list them:
Neon Purple Panic
Sexy in the City
OPI Thrill in Brazil
Nubar Green Tea
To start I painted grids on my nails (over a base coat) with a pen. Then with a striper brush I started to fill in the grid. I also started to paint in the empty areas with black but it actually didn't look right at all so I redid my thumb and left the blank areas blank.
Then I accidently topped it with Seche before I remembered to erase the remaining grid lines. Thus the "abstract" part of my title.
I think they came out pretty cool, although I'm sure that if I didn't tell you it was Tetris maybe you couldn't tell LOL.
