For those who don’t know, this is Domo Kun, an adorable little mascot of the Japanese television station NHK, and I love him to bits. He’s known for going on a rampage and yelling “raawww” LOL I really haven’t seen much of his cartoons/stop motion videos, but you just can’t help but fall in love with the little guy! Look at him!!!
Anyways, he was my inspiration when I came up with this mani. I actually had a couple in mind, but went with this one. Next time I might try the other one.
Anyways, without further adieu, here’s the mani I did yesterday. I didn’t want all my nails covered up, so I went with French tip for a few of the nails. The white background with red sun, is sort of a symbol of Japan, it’s on their flag, minus the lines. The thumb on the left hand (shown below) is Domo Kun peeking out. It took me a few tries to get it looking better. I had originally wanted to put his hand in front of his face, but it just didn’t look right. And the ring finger, is obviously normal Domo.
Here’s my right hand. I am not one for sticking to one design and that’s it, so I wanted to do something different with my right. I only did the 2 Domos on my right, with a combo of the Japanese sun symbol on the index. The background was sponged on, and has a bit of a gradient. And instead of regular Domo, I have nerdy Domo on my ring finger.
I quite like this mani.
