26 Great Nail Art Ideas: Black Base

Hello Readers!

Today's prompt for the 26 Great Nail art ideas challenge is to start with a black base. This is an idea that could go a lot of different directions, but the idea that popped into my mind was to do a Pac-Man manicure, since the background for that game is black and I have been dying to use these cute Pac-Man images on a MoYou London plate.

So I started with a shimmery black polish (Sinful Colors "Nice Guise", stamped a maze pattern over it, and added these cute little pac-man creatures. I used stamping polish in hopes that it would be opaque enough, but I did have to stamp Pac-Man himself twice and I went over the orange ghost completely after I stamped him because he didn't seem vibrant enough. 

The ghosts, pac-man, and little dots came from this nostalgic MoYou London Plate from the Time Traveler collection:

This really has a lot of fun images on it; Pac-Man just barely scratches the surface of possibilities for this plate.

The maze background comes from a Bundle Monster CYO 2014 plate:
