So I said I would do that thing where I was going to schedule my posts but alas, I am actually sick from work and at home today so here I am, doing it live. As some of you know, I recently became obsessed with Animal Crossing: New Leaf for Nintendo 3DS. I didn't update that I've actually fallen OUT OF LOVE with it. I know, I know - it's sad. I hadn't played any other titles since the original Animal Crossing for Game Cube and I wasn't aware they added a "feature" in City Folk called grass deterioration and wear, where running in your town actually wears down the grass and you are left with muddy patches. It's ugly.
Well, grass wear is back in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and it wasn't until I posted a #whatimdoingnow post on Instagram and Amanda from Sweetheart Nail Art told me that her brother runs in her town, ruining her grass. Ruining her grass? But I run all the time... Yeah, I found out too late. There is mud all over my town and it seems like there's no fixing it. I've stopped running, I've planted flowers over the trouble patches but it still seems to spread.
So here's my Shitty Nail Art Monday ode to grass deterioration in Animal Crossing, which I give a clear "fuck you" to:
I used OPI Jade is the New Black as a foundation, and I sponged on Color Club Earthy Angel on the tips, and as a highlight healthy grass nail, I used a dotting tool and used a mixed palette of OPI Jade is the New Black, OPI Alpine Snow, Zoya Dree, and Zoya Noot. I topped it off with a layer of Seche Vite.
There we have it - grass deterioration nails because I am a sad panda. And I am going back to bed because I still feel like a huge poop.
Did you know about grass wear and deterioration in Animal Crossing? What did you do to resolve it? What are your thoughts of it? Is it necessary?
