Nail Up July 2010

I've been going through Japanese nail mags lately and trying out designs on nail wheels. Here's one that I thought would be a bit complicated to do, but actually turned out to be easier than I thought.

From the July 2010 issue of Nail Up!

I thought it was gonna take a super long time, especially while doing my right hand, but I finished both hands while streaming an episode of Passions.

Two coats American Apparel - Palm Springs and black acrylic paint.


  1. This post couldn't be more timely for me! I have been thinking of getting a nail magazine for inspiration,however,when I google them,and it says their japanese,I naturally assume you must have to know Japanese to read it,right?

    That design looks alot better on your nails,than in the mag,that's for sure!

    Definitely do not need to know Japanese to read the mags. There's tons of pictures and very little to actually read. A good place to download mags would be here http://jmagazinescans.livejournal.com/

  3. Absolutely beautiful! So delicate and feminine. :)
