Recently, my favorite nail thread was derailed by talk of the latest addition to the "Animal Crossing" video game franchise. I don't play these games, but a lot of my nail friends do, so I thought it would be fun to do a little nail art for them! Someone mentioned fossils, so I Googled "animal crossing fossils" and discovered that they have a pretty simple design. Here is what a fossil looks like in the games:

And here is what I did for the manicure:
I know it's not quite up to my usual standards as far as neatness goes, but this is just something I did quickly for fun :-)
Background: China Glaze Blue Year's Eve
Fossil: China Glaze Snow
How it was done:
Swirl-I just kind of blobbed it on using a medium-sized nail art brush. It was easier to load the brush up and just pull the polish around, rather than trying to apply pressure and make a defined shape.
Dot-I just loaded up a nail art brush and dotted it on, but you could use a dotting tool.
Star-I used a tiny nail art brush to carefully draw it on the way we all drew stars back in elementary school! Then I filled in the gaps. In case you've never drawn a star, here is a messy tutorial!
Easy, right? I really should try to play these games, they look very cute!
