Geek Challenge - Games & Gaming (Sims)

Wow, I really have been slacking on these Geek Challenge nails! I had so many ideas for this week but I have been seriously lazy this week. Here's another game-inspired mani I did the other day. This one is inspired by one of my favorite games since it first came out - THE SIMS!


Not my best work (the small details were harder than I thought!) but not the worst either! I did the main diamond icon on my thumb and the rest are just icons for different things in the game. On my index finger is the fire icon when your Sim sets the food they are cooking on fire - this happens a lot. My middle finger is the icon that shows up when your Sim is hungry. I tried recreating the pacifier that pops up when your Sim family has a baby - I did one for a boy and one for a girl. And then last, just one that I thought was cool looking, is the icon that represents the "Evil" trait in a Sim's personality.

Here's a close up of the diamond icon:


And here's a closer picture of the other four icons:



And that's all I have for today! Sorry this is rushed, but I've got to run to work - don't forget to check out the other ladies doing this challenge :]
