Pokeball Nails: I choose you!

Hi loves, slightly different post today but i couldn't resist sharing this nail art because whether or not you watch the show and play the games who doesn't love Pokemon?! Since i started waitressing every one of my nails has broken down to a stub and the one good thing about stubby nails is that they are pretty much destined to be pokeballs....

Any nail art takes a little patience but this isn't difficult at all. First you just have to paint the entire nail white, wait to dry, paint over the top half in red, wait to dry, draw a line in black across the middle with a black dot on top, wait to dry, draw a smaller white dot in the centre, wait to dry, coat in clear varnish and voilà pokeballs!
I used Barry M bright red (262), Models own nail art pen in black, L.A colors energy source, a cheapy white nail art pen from Primark and to finish it all off Barry M 3-in-1 clear. (Do y'all like my pikhachu by the way?)

 Pretty simple and of all the nail art i've tried this has definitely got the bet response, so much so that i started to get annoyed at hearing 'oh my god are those pokeballs?!' but don't let that put you off! Next up on my list of nails to attempt are Pac man and adventure time....i'll be sure to share if they turn out well :)
