New 31 Day Challenge - Day 24 - Game Inspired Nails

Hey everyone! Sorry again for the late posts. I'll start posting about two a day from now on so I can get back on track. Today's nails are inspired by games. I've done a lot of manicures related to games I love, which is why I felt fresh out of ideas when it came to this challenge. So, I revisited a game I already did nails for called X-Note. You can check out a description of the game and the nail art at that link.
The grey is China Glaze Recycle, the white is OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and the black is Cirque Alter Ego. I used painted the index finger with recycle and then used striping tape to make the three stripes. The middle and pinky nail were done using the make-up sponge gradient method. The ring finger nail is Alter Ego with Cirque Potosi layered on top. If you like Potosi at all, I suggest you head over to Cirque's website, as the color is being discontinued! Plus you can get 40% using promo code "CIRQUE40".

And here's the character that the nails are based on! His name is Oure. :D

Thanks for reading, and be sure to check out the gorgeous nails of the wonderful ladies participating in this challenge along with me!
