This is the first set I made right after coming back from Japan, because I managed to break one of my nails during the last week of my stay in Tokyo. It's actually a funny story so I might as well tell you!
On one evening, after our nightly adventure to Yokohama, me and Anna decided to do some bar hopping in Shinjuku and ended up going to this tiny bar (called Caribbean, just so you know if you ever end up going there). I had to use the toilet right after we got there so Anna went to order some malibu cokes for the two of us while waiting for me.
There was only one small unisex toilet there, so I went there and thought I had locked the door properly. I was wearing my UNIF jumper, which is really nice, but you have to take it off completely in order to do your business in the toilet. Well, as I said, I thought I had locked the door, but it turns out I hadn't as some guy opened the door while I was doing my business... Ofcourse it's always embarrassing when stuff like that happens, but i was practically naked and I'm not entirely sure if the guy had the time check out that I did infact have some clothes with me.
I was so shocked about the situation I just grabbed the door handle with such speed and forgot to pay attention to my nails, so I ended up breaking one while closing the door :'D On the top of that, the broken nail flew somewhere down the stairs (the bar was upstairs), so me and Anna downed our malibu cokes faster than ever and spent probably 10 minutes looking for it, so I could do a quick fix up and glue it back on lol. I was about to have a shooting with Kawaii International TV two days later and it would've been embarrassing to go there with a nail missing....
Anyway, about these nails. I did some purple to blue (and vice versa) gradient nails using two China Glaze polishes and mixed them with white nails and gold glitter gradient nails. The seashell shaped studs added a mermaid-like feeling to these, I think!
Here's a list of products that I used:
• China Glaze: Capacity To See Beyond (blue polish)
• China Glaze: That's Shore Bright (purple polish)
• Color Club: Take The Stage (gold glitter polish)
• O.P.I: When Monkeys Fly! (big hexagon gold glitter polish. excuse my dementia, I forgot to add this in the picture)
• Essie: Blanc (white polish)
• Nail art studs
• Sea shell studs from Donki
• Swarovski crystals in different sizes
• Blue acrylic stones and pearls from craft stores
• Konad: golden ball deco chain
