For a long time I’ve wanted to try out this technique, but it seemed very daunting. I think I need some practice, but it was very fun and I can’t wait to try it out again.

I wasn’t totally happy with them, but the colors did show up better in person. My poor camera was so confused by all the colors and sparkles. :)

ORLY in White Tips, AC-NED-82, AC-NED-81, L’Oreal Bijou Gems in B. Outrageous, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Lightening, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Snappy Sorbet, AC-NED-90, Sally Hansen HD in Wavelength, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Mint Sprint, ORLY in Gumdrop, AC-NED-94, OPI in Not Like The Movies.

I was inspired by this tutorial which I found through this amazing tumblr. (Which, I was introduced to by my BF, might as well continue the credit-where-credit-is-due train of thought.)

I chose a lighter base mostly because I am so in love with my new OPI in Not Like The Movies. :) Seriously, such a great color, neutral but with a bit of understated rock star glam.

Because I am a crazy person I stayed up until 5am to complete this design. x.X I am always telling people ‘oh it didn’t take that long’ and often the designs themselves don’t, by drying takes forever! I only recently started using a topcoat to preserve my designs longer, and it seems to work pretty well, but it also tends to smear my designs if I don’t wait quite a long time for them to dry before applying the topcoat.

We had a festival to go to so I did some nail designs to match the yukatas of my friends and I! I did a colored french and added a stripe to spice things up and little flower/dot accents on the thumbs. Added a bit to a plain pedi as well.

The design I painted on fake nails for one friend; orange french tips with a black spray.

Another friend; blue angled french tips, with white and red stripe accents and some extra sparkle spray on the thumbs.

So far I don’t have many nail styles to post since I have just recently decided to document them. I am an exchange student in Japan and I find myself with much more free time on my hands then I have back in the States. Thus the idea to start keeping track of my designs and to make them public was born! Yes, yes, so exciting, I know. =p

For some reason my camera finds it very hard to focus when taking pictures of my nails.

I was going to Hanami and wanted to do something special for the occasion!
