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.

UPDATE: Wow, that was in March of last year!  Time really flies!  Definitely not magnificent at it, but still on the Magic train and much better at it than last year.  XD

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*
