The iPhone (Nail) Series: Plants vs Zombies

Hey there guys, new iPhone Nail Series!! It's been a while... Like 5 months... But I really did not have the time for special game app nail art haha. Hopefully I can make up for it today, cause I seriously LOVE this look. The plants are good biz. And the zombie was unexpectedly quite good, I'm very proud of it and it's something I just wouldn't really paint, and I like it.

Oh yeeaaaahhh, good Plants vs Zombies stuff. The plants are cute and happy and shootin' peas and exploding. And the zombies is quite scary(? Maybe? I don't really know :P), I'm just pleased that it's accurate to the games' version, and I didn't have a big old fail. That zombie is the height of realism at PlumeriaPainted!! I had bunches of black paint trying to get all the detail of the zombie, and it was worth it. So the plants I have here are the Sunflower, the Peashooter and the Potato Mine. Yeah just really happy that I conveyed the characters of the game right, and I really like how they look!! :)

Everyone likes Plants vs Zombies right? It's real time strategy for everyone (here's me pretending I know all about genres, hopefully it's RTS :/). It's so easy to get into and just start playing.
Admittedly I never finished the game, I got to the very last level and I had to retry about twice but I was about 1 hit away from beating the final boss and the battery ran out. And weirdly I never felt compelled to finish even years after to this day. But playing was really fun!! Though I was occasionally stressed playing the game, but we all have our strategies of getting through each level.
I think my favourite plant was the Squash (or Gourd as I called it for some reason, I blame Veggietales), cause it's OP, it's cheap and could defeat that giant zombie and could attack behind and overall it was a very useful plant. Also another favourite would have to be the Walnut, stalling was something that had to done frequently.
I know Plants vs Zombies 2 came out a while ago and I haven't played (but my close friends got it almost as soon as it came out, I think they preferred the first one?), and probably won't as I don't play many iPhone games anymore. But to me it seems that even though it's free, it tries to get you to pay more ingame. The plants look good though and it seems cuter, which I'm always onboard with.

  1. These look so cute! I love the potato mine nail -- it's little buck teeth are great :D I spend way too much time playing Plants vs Zombies haha

    1. Thanks you!! :3 Hehe I wanted to make sure I captured that because its too cute!! Haha I totally get you, I think everyone has a time in their lives when they're obsessed with Plants vs Zombies ;)

  2. I love that potato!! I play plants vs zombies a lot on my computer, but since I don't have an smart phone (I really feel like I don't need one, I already work on a computer all day, I don't need more screens in my life), I can't play plants vs zombies 2... I was so sad when I learnt it would be a phone game... I honestly don't understand why people are so obsessed with iphone games. Seriously, they do not seem that great! You can play real games with a 3DS and still play in the train or the bus... I just don't get it! But anyway, enough complaining (I'm French, so I need to complain at least 10 minutes a day in order to be healthy) This manicure is awesome, every character you did is perfect, but I prefer the potato because it is sooo cute ^^

    1. Awwwww thank you so much!! ^_^_^_^ you definitely don't need one, in this day and age there's too many screens everywhere!!
      Yeah I stopped being so into iPhone games a while ago, I just like doing the nail art haha. It's a shame it's not on the computer, it's robbing experiences, it looks like a fun game.
      SO AGREED ABOUT THE 3DS, I got one last month and I'm OBSESSED (Streetpass Quest, you know what I mean? ;)) and the games are SO much better on the 3DS, I have nail art regarding that coming up soon too haha, obsessed I am, you have brilliant taste!!
      Hahah no it's fine, I am a known ranter as well, it's a good reliever of stress :P
      You're so nice, thank you :) the potato is adorable, I'm happy it's your favourite!! :)
