So! My trip to Tokyo was getting closer and closer. How I got ready for it? With a new set of nails ofcourse! I was a little nervous about the design and if it's worth of Tokyo :'D It's funny, I know, but I mainly draw my inspiration for my nails from japanese nail art and it would've felt wrong to go there with shitty simple nails. Anyway, this is what I came up with.
I wanted the studs and pearls to match the color scheme of the nails, but I didn't have them in similar colors... I decided to fix the problem by painting them with the nail polishes as well! Would've you guessed it worked that well?
When in Finland people always ask me how can I do anything with my nails, in Tokyo the reaction was totally different. No matter which store I went to, the shop staff always commented my nails and told me how cool they were AND then showed their own nails to me so we could have a little moment of nail hype together! It was so much fun :D Nobody never questioned if I can get through daily stuff with these and it was really refreshing. Or well, atleast the women didn't. The guys I met, on the other hand, asked quite inappropriate questions lol.
Maybe it's because.. even if not everyone there has long nails like mine, it's still way more common to have something like these in Tokyo than it is in Finland.
Here's a list of products that I used:
• China Glaze: Neon & On & On (pink polish)
• China Glaze: That's Shore Bright (purple polish)
• Color Club: Evolution (blue polish)
• Color Club: Platinum Record (silver glitter polish)
• Nail art studs
• Nail art tape in silver
• Swarovski crystals: SS6 (crystal AB)
• Silver cross charms from my trip to Italy
• Big pearls from Hobby Point
