Side Pattern Mani

Good morning, dear readers!

Today's manicure is inspired by a manicure I saw in a Japanese nail magazine.  You can get scans on Tokyo Jam for a BUNCH of Japanese nail magazines, and believe you me, it is amazing!!  I adore those magazines!  If I lived in Japan I would buy a bunch of them!

I changed the design a bit to make it my own.  I would add the reference photo in this post, but it is floating around my computer somewhere and I can't seem to find it at the moment.

Seriously though, if you want a gazillion ideas for nail inspiration, check out Tokyo Jam (they have Nail Up, Nail Venus, and more!).

It's a bit messy, but that is okay.  It just means that I will need to get more practice!  (Oh darn :P XD!)

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Friday! :D



  1. I've got a whole folder on my computer full of scans from Tokyo Jam! I haven't done a nail design inspired by one for such a long time - I want to do one now! Yours is so good :)

  2. @ Leanne: Thank you so much!! :D I LOVE those magazines! XD I had downloaded pretty much all of the available nail magazines they had, and then somehow they were erased from my computer! >:( But I started getting them again, hehe. ^-^

  3. Lovely nail decoration! And colours are amazing - once again :)

About Me

My Photo

Heyo!  I am the writer behind Art Evolve, a blog about things and stuff, that I update sometimes.  >:D

I have a serious love for books, gaming, and general sci-fi and fantasy things.

I also love music and art, and hope to become a better musician and artist as time goes on.

I just started playing Magic: The Gathering again after a looooong break (11 years!?!), and it is awesome.  I hope to become a better Magic player too, because I'm not that great at it heheheh.

I was introduced to edh last (I think?) month, and it has quickly become a favourite format.

OH!  I also do MTG altered art, which I recently started and it is seriously fun and rewarding.  Magic + art practice?  Aw yeah!! :D

What else, what else...  I like video games, and play on both PC and console (PS!!).  I love rpg's and some good shooters, and killing zombies is a plus.

I love chocolate, tea and coffee.  I smoke cigarettes, which is stupid, so don't ever smoke cigarettes because it is stupid.

I also really like food.  Too much so.  Especially crunchy things!  I seriously need to get some bubble tea because it has been way too long.

I love to study but my ADHD makes it a bit difficult (a lot difficult, because remembering things can be kinda rediculous).  I also have obsessive compulsive disorder which sucks.  And anxiety disorders, which suck.

Favourite subjects include: astronomy, nihongo, art, geology, stuff like that.

HAVE AT YOU, KNAVE!  *slaps*
