The Digit-al Dozen Does it AGAIN: Geeks! with Skylander Giants Elemental Powers Nail Art

Oh my, it's Monday again! And today I've got some 'geeky' nail art for you - inspired by some of the symbols of different elemental powers from video game Skylanders Giants! Is this game really geeky? I don't know, probably. The Skylander games really appeal to my need to buy small knick-knacks that I don't need, but in the case of the game they're sweet avatars your put on the Portal of Power and play with. The game is mostly intended for children, but is really fun for the children in all of us - har har. Specifically it is a game I like because I am very bad at normal video games, and I find this one playable. Anyhoo, check out my nails!

To make the background more interesting I splodge-sponged some different colors on to each nail, including some glass fleck polishes. In person the base is really pretty and interesting because the little flecks catch the light, but a little too subtle for my camera apparently! Then I used some white acrylic paint and went to town doing the different symbols. From thumb to pinkie I've got the Undead, Fire, Magic, Life, and Air. In the photos I'm holding one of the characters of the Undead Element, Cynder; the Undead characters are probably my fave because they're all so cool!

In the end I guess this is geeky because I really want to nerd out talking about my favorite characters and stuff! Have you played any of the Skylander games? I'm actually really looking forward to the Swap Force game that's coming out in November! Now don't forget to check out the other geeky nails below and the September Spectacular GIVEAWAY!!
