NAILS FROM 2014: part 2/3


Okay, here's the second set of nails in the series! I know I said a while ago that I don't particularly enjoy theme nails, but if it's a character I like, then it's okay.

I've seen japanese nail artist use a lot of Barbie -themed nail decorations and when I came across these stickers while visiting the Barbie store in Harajuku, I couldn't leave without buying a couple sheets.

I bought one sheet with cartoon Barbie designs and another one with more realistic, photograph like designs. I had hard time deciding which one I should get, the regular Barbie/Ken -sheet or one where Barbie had pastel colored hair. In the end I decided to go with the regular Barbie/Ken one!

Because these nails had a Barbie theme, pink was obviously one of the colors I had to use. The rest of the colors choices I just based on the stickers.

The pink hearts are sculpted with clear acryl and then painted pink with nail polish and the color block -designs on my middle finger, ring finger and thumb are handpainted btw. I just added nail art tape over the outlines to make it look more clean.

The sticker on my thumb nail was so huge it made me wonder if anyone else besides me could have even used it... Well, good for me! I wish I could find bigger stickers/decals like these more often.

Here's a list of products that I used:
Color Club: Sugarplum Fairy (silver glitter polish)
• China Glaze: Neon & On & On (pink polish)
Essie: Blanc (white polish)
Color Club: Almost Famous (yellow polish)
Nail art studs
Silver heart charms
• Heart shaped studs
• Star shaped studs from Donki
• Silver nail art tape
• Konad: silver ball deco chain
• Barbie nail stickers from Barbie store in Harajuku

Oh btw, I should get a new laptop today, so I can finally answer the comments you've left on my previous posts! Writing replies on iPad sucks, so I've kinda avoided that.... See ya!


  1. Vau, aivan upeat kynnet! *-* Herkullinen väriyhdistelmä, kivasti kimallusta, ja nuo tarratkin on ihania.

  2. awwww i really like these barbie themed nails of yours!! supa kawaii!!!

    1. thank you so much!!<3 even though they were cute, they weren't overly cute, because otherwise i would've felt uncomfortable with them :D

  3. I've seen barbie being very popular on nail art too, Love the colours you used!

    1. yeah, it's been really popular lately in asia :D thank you<3

  4. wow, the nails are amazing :) if I can ask - which kind of top coat did you use? Or is it gel? It´s so shiny, I love it

    1. thanks!<3
      i use finishing gel as a topcoat :D it makes them super shiny and it also protects the design much better than regular topcoat ˆˆ
