It's-A Me, Mario!-Mario Bros. Nail Art Tribute

Hello Friends,

Today's manicure will pay tribute to the Mario franchise.

Mario was originally named "Mr. Video" and debuted in 1981 in the Donkey Kong arcade game. In his first incarnation, Mario was a carpenter that had a pet ape named Donkey Kong who kidnaped Mario's girlfriend, Pauline. The object of the game is to save Pauline by dodging obstacles.

                                               
The character got his name when his creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, promised to pay Nintendo of America's warehouse landlord named Mario, all the past due rent. Miyamoto decided to name the character after the landlord. 

In 1983, Mario Bros. was released in arcades. Mario was introduced as the main character with his nationality identified as Italian-American who worked as a plumber in New York alongside his younger brother, Luigi. Mario and Luigi battled monsters that came out of the sewers.

Super Mario Bros. was released in 1985 when audiences were introduced to the Mushroom Kingdom and its host of characters such as Princess Toadstool (Peach), and King Koopa (Bowser) with Mario going on a quest to save the former from the later.

Since it's a debut, Mario has been dubbed Nintendo's mascot and as one of the most successful video games of all time. 

My experience playing Mario came from helping him dodge barrels that Donkey Kong threw on the original Nintendo game console. I also have spent many a night playing Mario Kart on N64 with my Brother.
