Recently I’ve been trying to find new hobbies and for some reason I started to get into nail art. I don’t know why… it kind of just happened.

I think it started when I wanted to wear fake nails but I didn’t want those pre-designed ones you can buy at the drug store. I wanted to personalize my nails with something I enjoy. That’s when I thought of the companion cube and soon my nail idea grew to incorporate the Portal game.

Now, if you aren’t familiar with Portal, it is a classic puzzle game. You solve each level and get to move onto the next – kind of idea. It comes with a story which is too long to write about but if you’re interested in learning more I’ll link you to where you can read about it HERE.

Anyways, after a couple of days I have finally completed the first nail art designs I have and I thought I’d share with you that image:

I’m proud of my first attempt at this and hopefully I’ll get better the more I make.

I think the next set I’m going to make will be Disney inspired. I’ve been listening to the Rapunzel soundtrack and really got some fun ideas I want to test out on nails. Either that or Little Mermaid, since my hair is now teal I think mermaid designs and sea shells would be fun. We shall see how it goes. 🙂
