(my visual-kei inspired nail art!)
This coming weekend, an event will be held at SMX Convention Center. And on that event, I debuted one year ago (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧(lol). By that I mean, the Best of Anime is the first ever event that I attended. Time sure flies fast when you’re having fun~ It’s been a year now huh? ヾ(*´ー`)ノ I remember my first event like it was yesterday~
I never knew anyone in the community actually, except those I befriended online through the JRock fandom. There was a meet-up so I was eager to go.
Maaaan~ I prepared a lot for that event. I dyed my hair blonde, watched visual-kei inspired makeup tutorials and whatnot. I wanted to go as Ruki from the GazettE, sadly it wasn’t what I expected. But it was fairly visual-kei-ish to me and my JRock friends (lol).
This year, I’ll attend in my visual-kei attire again ヽ(*≧ω≦)ﾉ Just because I really love it~ Tehee~ I will blog about my attire and the makeup I’ll be doing. Tho I’m not really sure about the makeup.. (still practicing~).
Last week I went shopping for new clothes, you’ll probably see me wearing those. And as for the nail polish, I wanted to make it more visual-kei buuuut… I’m no good with designing “oTL I could barely use my nail art pen and striper. I will need to practice more.
Just a disclaimer tho, I’m no pro okay~? (*´・ｖ・) So don’t get upset and shoot arrows at me because it looks horrendous (lol).
Nail Polish~ (yaaaaaay~!)
Note that I use cheap materials only~ Because I’m a cheap person (lol). Seriously, I would prefer to go shopping at Divisoria, Quiapo, 168 and 999 mall rather than somewhere else expensive. Ah speaking of which, since it’s that time of year again (-ber months~!!) I’m looking forward to go to Divisoria’s night market~!! ヽ(*≧ω≦)ﾉ
OMG Oh My Golly nail colors By: Klik
For all of my nails except the ring finger, I used OMG White Out for my base coat. I applied two coats of this to make it more opaque.
CharmLimit Color #23
And then I used this baby~! (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ My mom bought it for me last week as an early present. I applied it to my thumb and index finger nail. You might have to move it around a bit to spread the little confetti-ish things (whatever you call it~).
CharmLimit Velvet Nails: Black
By the way, it doesn’t really say Velvet Nails: Black. I just added it there since it only said CharmLimit on the box. Moving on~! I have only used this set once. It takes about 3 or 4 days for this nail polish to last. The set includes a nail polish, a brush, and two containers of fibers (I don’t know how exactly to call it so..).
I applied this on my ring finger nail. You can go look at YouTube tutorials if you don’t know how to apply velvet nail polish.
BK Jelly Nail Polish #61
Again, it doesn’t say Jelly on the actual bottle. I just added it just in case you buy one since BK has a wide range of nail polishes. From crackling, glow in the dark to matte nail polishes.
I applied two coats of this to my ring finger nail to make it more opaque and a tad bit darker.
Sassy Colors: Pure Black
I applied one coat of this over my pinky finger nail. Usually I’d double it but since I already applied a white base coat, the black polish popped out nicely.
EPSA Art Nail Polish Decoration Silver
It didn’t have any specific number or name so I just added the “silver” part. I never use this thing because I’m so bad at using my hands. My hands are too shaky so I can’t make a proper design and it’s more troublesome when I do my right hand “oTL
I made a tiny cross on the black coat when it dried. I used the pen nail polish instead of the striper because I thought I could be more precise since my finger nails were cut short (´･_･`) (I shouldn’t have cut it too short ugh..).
Caronia nail care Fast-Dry Top Coat
Then I applied a Fast-Dry top coat except on the ring finger nail which is the velvet nail art (you wouldn’t wanna ruin that velvety nail art now would you~?).
And it’s done~! Simple visual-kei inspired nails ☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆I couldn’t design it more with crosses. I really shouldn’t have cut my nails too short, and I need to learn how to use my striper and pen nail polish (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
Anyway, if you do a recreation of this please please please show it to me on Instagram ne~? (*´・ｖ・) And if you did some modifications to it, still show it to me (lol). Let’s share ideas~! Tehee~
Of course you can use whatever nail polish you desire. These are just what I had on hand soooo~ Also if you like these kind of posts, tell me if you want me to make more. I’d gladly post another one (that is if I don’t get too lazy).
Follow me too on Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram or add me on LiveJournal if you’d like to see more random posts of mine ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
