Day 07 of 31 Day Challenge is Black & White nails!!
(Oh BTW today is also the Polish Days, which theme is “Number 5”; and I’ve posted ANOTHER mani for such an event too! Check it out here ;D)

Well initial idea wasn’t like this. Really initial idea was to go simple B/W stamping but when I started to paint nails something told me not to go straight to that direction, and first outcome went like this;

Plain cat-head tips with footprints. Then while I was taking a pic of this “plain” version, something popped up in my head;

Doko-Demo-Issyo (どこでもいっしょ), the one of super long-selling game contents in Japan. Because of its cute cat (& other animals) characters, it’s almost like a symbol of Play Station Entertainment that it’s not developed only for game itself but also used as the mascot characters for overall navigation/promotion of PSE themselves. Of course I love them and meanwhile my plain cat-head tip began to show up their face, so I grabbed paint brush and posca, and…Now here they are, say hi to Toro & Kuro! :D

31日チャレ7日目は白黒ネイル!……というところで当初はシンプルに白黒スタンプでもすっかと思ってたのですがどういうことでしょうかねこの変化。しかも最初トロクロ描くつもり全く無かったのですよこれが。猫頭フレンチと足跡で十分だよなーと思ってたんですよ。でも写真を一通り取っているうちにだんだん猫頭、特に白い方、がトロに見えて来ましてね……orz 今一度頭の形をオフィシャルで確認して、やっぱりトロだよなあ、クロも行けるよなあ、となった結果どこいつネイル化してしまったわけです。

口元は描けなかったのですが目元だけでも結構解る感じだなと思うのですが如何でしょうか。デザイン秀逸だよなあ。実はどこいつ既に初出から15年近く(!)経っているはずなのですが、古臭く感じないのはさすがキャラクター大国日本の本気だなぁと思います。そいえばどこいつってPSPでも出てるんですね。PSP基本リージョンフリーだし、そのうち欲しいなあと思っています。
(ちなみに本日2本更新しています、もう1つはPolish Daysネイル!どうかこちらからおひとつー
