The third them of September’s Nail Art Ideas Linkup (NAIL) is Games & Apps. What a fun theme! There were a lot of things swirling through my mind: Dance Dance Revolution, Ghost Radar, Zuma Blitz, Scrabble, Angry Birds… the list goes on and on! But there is one card game that I’ve been playing obsessively lately and it’s a Nook app called Aces Spades made by Concrete Software, Inc. I’m not dissing Barnes & Noble or the Nook, but most of my Nook apps are a wee bit lame. But this Spades game is just too fun! It’s a nice basic version of four-player Spades, it’s glitch-less, and I love the color scheme and ‘feel’ of the app. It almost looks a little gothic. Here’s a couple screen shots of the game so you can see what I mean.
For this nail art I’m wearing:
♠ OPI Unfor-greta-bly Blue with some black sponged on top
♠ the yellow accents are Sinful Colors Pull Over with some Julie G Metallic Heels mixed in
♠ the purple accents were made with a magnetic polish called Houses of Parliament by Nails Inc.
I kinda love the trio of colors here! And I’ve never used magnetic polish for an accent nail before. I’m really happy with the result! I’ll definitely have to try that again, especially since my big stash of magnetics are all sitting in a box unused! So what do you think of my Spades nail art? Did I capture the essence of this app at all?
