Even 31 Day Challenge is ongoing, here comes another Polish Days! :D
I think May’s theme went a bit tricky, which is “The Number 5”. It was so broad, I felt a bit lost while I was thinking what can I do for this super common theme; It could be ANYTHING! I had to find something fits in my mind but it took long time to think, finally I could decide what I want to do only YESTERDAY. Now here’s my inspiration, sorry for non-geeks but I AGAIN went to geek-y way;

SPACE CHANNEL 5, the retro video game produced by SEGA.
For those who don’t know about this game, it’s one of the music video game which is released more than a decade ago on SEGA’s Dreamcast. For game itself, just take a look on following movie;

Space Channel 5 - Introducing…Ulala!

UP, DOWN, UP, DOWN, CHU CHU CHU!! …Isn’t it pop & cute? ;) It’s also known that Michael Jackson aka King of Pop LOVED this game, and even got starred on the Space Channel 5 Part 2 as “Space Michael”! :D Anyway this is one of my fav game in the past (actually my fav hardware is Dreamcast; I’m SO sad it’s totally gone now), so why not taking this as an inspiration? ;)

It’s music game but also sci-fi game as well, that’s why I grabbed silver holo; linear holographic silver makes me feel very SF-like. I’ve painted Morolians on over holo, as they’re one of symbol icon for the game itself. Of course the Space Channel 5’s logo had to be painted as well - for the theme “number 5” - which went to the ring finger on plain white background.

Actually it was not easy to take a time for this month’s Polish Days that I’m in the middle on 31 Day Challenge; I NEVER thought I could manage to do both Polish Day mani and B/W mani for Day 7 of 31 Day Challenge (POST HERE; it’s funny that this one is also the game inspired mani :P) separately in individual post. I’m very happy I made it! Now I’m looking forward to see other girls’s “Number 5”; I’m sure mine is the most geek-y one though :P

さーて31日チャレの真っ最中ですが毎月恒例Polish Daysですよ!今月のテーマは「ナンバー5」……っていつにも増してどーしろとという感じなのですが。ただ単に爪に番号書くだけでもテーマに沿ってるっちゃー沿ってるのですが、それじゃ面白くねーな、いうことでいろいろ頭を捻り脳を絞り全く何も出て来ないまま時間が過ぎふと気づけばもう明日じゃねーか!というところまで追い詰められたところで半ばヤケクソ気味で捻り出したのが今回のネイルであるところのスペースチャンネル5ネイルです。本来は「チャンネル5」ですが別にいいよね!だってロゴも「5」だしさ!!(゚∀゚)

ということでロゴ&モロ星人で御座います。「モロ星人&ロゴを描く」以外物の見事に何も決めずに塗り始めたスーパー行き当たりばったりネイルだったのですが、思ってた以上に悪くない仕上がりになって満足です。前にも一度SwatchしてるSNCの玉虫じゃなくて新入り玉虫のどれかを使えば良かった!とは思ったものの他は概ね満足。モロ星人もう少し梃子摺ると思ったら意外と大丈夫でした。しかしポスカの色が足りなくて死にそうだった件。日本行ったら絶対に買い足すんだ!(`・ω・´)

ちなみに31日チャレ遂行中なので本日は1日2本更新です。仕事が阿呆忙しくなった瞬間だったのもあって軽く死にそうでしたがやれば出来るもんだ。そんな31日チャレ7日目は白黒ネイルだったのですが、……こちらもまたゲームネイルっつーのは一体どーしたもんですかねと思いつつ。まあヲタだから仕方無いのかな!かな!!(・ω<)テヘペロ
