Hey there! As I alluded to on Monday, I have one Digit-al Dozen Fandom mani that I really know nothing about. But when I was googling popular fandom's I saw a couple of video games on that list that a good friend of mine has been a Cinematic Designer on so I thought it would be fun to try to do something inspired by them...though my inspiration really just came from Google images since I have no firsthand experience with either of the games. The game he likes more is called Mass Effect so that's what I've focused on here but there's also a Dragon Age-inspired mani at the end of this post as a bonus.
Even though I'm not personally a fan of this video game, I am a fan of my friend and when I texted him a picture of these he gave me his seal of approval so I'm actually really proud of these. Thanks to him and the internet, I do know what these symbols represent...sort of. Here's an example of his work if you'd like to see what the game is like.
I used all Sally Hansen InstaDri colors for this mani (plus white acrylic paint). I used OMGhost (white) and Back to Black. For the Renegade (star) symbol, I used a star-shaped Nail Vinyl and Rapid Red and then added the extra white lines with acrylic paint. For the "N7" I used white acrylic paint and Rapid Red and for the blood stripe I used a white base and super skinny straight Nail Vinyls and Rapid Red and Back to Black. And lastly I had to freehand the Paragon symbol (the hardest part of all) with Sally Hansen Brisk Blue. And then I matted it with OPI matte top coat.
I was a bit at a loss for what to put on my thumb because I thought I had already touched all the major Mass Effect symbols so I did this space image with Brisk Blue and white acrylic paint. This turned out to be my favourite part of all of it!
But before I even did the Mass Effect mani, I had tried a Dragon Age mani that I also wanted to share. I started with A England Fated Prince and KBShimmer Eyes White Open. I then stamped with a couple of images from Messy Mansion MM21 with Essie No Place like Chrome and MDU Red (#9). I splattered the scales with A England Perceval and added a bit more to the dragon image because apparently Dragon Age is a massively bloody game...yuck!
If you've ever played either of these games, I'd absolutely love to hear your thoughts on these! Did I pass the gamer test?
