Let's Do the Time Warp Challenge! Day 6: They sure don't make 'em like they use to!

Hello all! Day 6 of the challenge already! Today's objective was to create a nail art design based on a classic game or toy. I knew what I was going to do for today the instant I saw the layout for the challenge! I choose my absolute favorite game, the board game Clue! As for the title of today's challenge, "They sure don't make 'em like they use to," this statement is very true for Clue. They really don't make Clue like the use to. In fact, I absolutely hate the new version of the game. 

The box from my favorite edition. I wish I still owned it!
I really hate change, especially when something is so good. So Parker Brothers, give me my Clue back! I was so excited to do Clue nails, however, I love Clue so much that I think I went a little over board on the details of my nail art. I really need to learn how to simplify my ideas. I can't get over how many little things I painted, it's really hard to see them all! I have all 6 character pieces and all 6 weapons. I decided to only use four of the nine rooms. I choose some of my favorites; the conservatory, the billiard room, the library and the kitchen. The idea was to do some of the game board, using all of the game pieces. What do you guys think?




And here's a close up of the nails without direct lighting. Hopefully you can see the details better.


Here's a picture of the game board I used for inspiration:

I hope you guys got what I was trying to do and I hope you guys liked my design. I really need to remember to simplify...Only two days of the challenge left! Day 7 of the challenge is going to be hard! I have no idea what is timeless...


I'm going to have to really think about the next challenge. I'm really looking forward to what everyone else came up with today.

PeaceErin

  4. This is awesome - I like the detail! I loved Clue as a kid and could only play when I went to my cousins house because of course I didn't own the stinkin game...

    1. Thank you! Aw that's a shame you didn't own it but at least you still got to play every once in a while. I no longer own it and it makes me very sad! Especially because the new version is so crappy.

    1. I love questions, so no worries! My understanding is that Cluedo is British and Clue is American. I saw that there is a new Cluedo game that is Sherlock themed. I want it so bad! I'm hoping they come out with a version that's available in America!:)
