This easy Retro PACMAN nail tutorial will guide you step-by-step on how to create this super fun look. I used household items to create a lot of the details. The idea came from a PACMAN nail art tutorial I saw on Youtube.

The only tricky part to this tutorial, is that you have to be patient in between drying times to create all the details. Other than that, it's really simple and anybody can do it. You can get creative and add other items from the original game like cherries, or a nail filled completely with Pac-Dots.

You will need the following Nail Polish for this tutorial:

Great-ness! Going to keep this one book marked for my daughter! Be a bit as she is only 4 but so worth the wait :)
Thats cute. Not sure I could pull it off though. The guys at work would not be nice...Reminds me of my ringtone on my phone "WANKA WANKA WANKA". Some kids these days dont even know what Pacman is. I spent many quarters running from Inky Pinky Blinky and Clyde. Nice job Mrs. Peas. :}
Sounds like the guys @ work are no fun. I try to expose my son to all the old school goodies. :) Thanks!
Your hands are so milky smooth.<br>
