Create your own Nail Art

Fingernails.. Toenails.. they’re like mini canvases waiting to be painted (or collaged!). I used to have such a love for nail art that I devoted an entire website to it, complete with fanlisting! The fanlist grew large, the discussion about Japanese fashion, makeup and nail art was booming.

Now thanks to the rad Japanese fashion magazines people scan and share and Gwen Stefani, Japan fashion is even more prevalent today. (yay!)

Japan has a hand up in life design.
Design is a process that we can take to every level.
Let’s not ignore our nails! ;)

So how will we get this decadent inspiration without scanning bookstores for Japanese fashion magazines and nail salon listings? Here of course!

Below are some cute nail tips and tutorials from Japan, I’m absolutely digging on the strawberries.

No matter what you decide~ enjoy life to the fullest while you design your world.

Nail art scans are from Japanese fashion magazines such as ecocolo, CUTiE, CUTiE Book, melon, egg, Kera, BLENDA, JILLE, ku:nel, Nail Up, etc and, my favorite nail salon, PinkyNail.

    Wow, these are wild, crazy and fun! The young Japanese girls are always ahead of the trends, so I can only imagine we will be seeing these on the nails of a young girl near us…soon:-)

    Amberrenee, this is such a fun and informational blog. I will check in again and get lost. Thanks for stopping by!

    this makes me wish that I had nicer nails, maybe it’s just another reason to take better care of them. I’m wild about the strawberries and the polka dots, perhaps I’ll have to try it. people should send in pics of their nail art successes! :idea:
