New nails! I know, I've said before that I don't like matte nails, but look what we have here. Some matte nails!! I don't know why, but it seemed like a good idea in my head, so I decided to give them a try. Though I don't really know what to think about the result. I thought hot pink would look good with some matted grey and I guess it works to some point, but maybe it's the designs that don't really go with each other. I don't know.
Usually after I'm finished doing my nails, I can't stop staring at them if I'm satisfied with the result. With these, I'm staring at them, but for a completely different reason: I'm thinking if I should remove them or not, hahaha.
Anyway, my favourite points are probably the studs on the grey nails. I didn't have triangle-shaped studs, but I had some that are like this: ♦, so I just cut them in half and used those, haha. The gold foil also goes pretty well with the hot pink nail polish, because the polish has a slight shimmer to it too. It's not really visible at all in these pics, but see this to get an idea what I'm talking about.
The pink & white flower stickers are something I bought from Shibuya Marui 100yen store when we were filming the episode for Kawaii International, but more about that later. I used the whole sheet for these two nails... :D
Aaaah, I had such a good vision in my head when I made these, but as it sometimes happens, I couldn't quite get my vision on my nails. Well, I guess this is what I'll be going with for the next few weeks anyway. What do you think about the nails?
