Currently Into: Japanese Nail Mania

I recently got my nails did.

Not like, the regs 20 mins "Pick your cuh-lah" whatevs manicure that I usually get (when I don't do a red red shellac), but a serious gelled up sparklefest nail situation painted on with like 3 hairs tied to a stick by an adorable Japanese girl who thought my first timer choices were very "conservative".

I was brought to Sakura by my friend Anaheed who is an old pro at this nail game- she had a plan and photos and a whole thing. I was like.."Oh um..can you copy this lightning bolt tattoo on my arm, and can I mabes get some jewels?" Anaheed got stars n gold glitter and was a star customer. I need to work up to this status, IT WAS MY FIRST TIME OKAY?!

I resolve to commit to memory every new style in the latest issue of Nail Up! so that next time I will do better, weirder, and more extravagant.
I want like, 3D castles built up and shit.
Maybe my own face painted on a pinkie nail.
My crush's name spelled in braille rhinestones across all ten nails?

I have owned 'tokyo look book' for years now and I think that's where I first saw trippy nails. Like cabachons on there and everything! Once I wore a rhinestone decal and I felt so japanese nail styles :P
Love the lightening bolt especially, and the stars are awesome. Especially the gold and black.

Sigh...I try to do fun nails every once in awhile, but I destroy them in like 2 days...one of the hazards of working with your hands I guess...damn jewelry pliers!

That is a colorful one, eh. I love the styles of Japanese when it comes to haircut, as well as on their nails.
