Pretty in Pink

Japanese nails don't have a whole lot of functional use, but to me they're spectacular. I've always wanted a real set of gels but obviously people around here don't know how to do it. And if they did I'm sure it would cost an arm and a leg. I buy my nails off of Ebay but you can buy the supplies and make them yourself. They're tricky to wear and take a lot of skill and practice. The only bad thing about the fake ones is that you can easily pop one off and lose it! I've had a couple of different sets of nails and these are by far my favorites. The nails are clear gel acrylic with sparkles mixed in. They have a pink french tip and cute little doo-dads all over. I know that right now the trend are rounded tips but they just don't appeal to me as much as square.

Please do not take or reuse these images without credit back to me or my blog. Thank you.
Speaking of images, I find it very amusing how many of my photos are floating around the internet! If you search "juicy couture" on tumblr, at least once you will find a picture of mine. Mostly not credited back to me (of course) but I think that's very strange and amazing all at the same time. I have really come to like how popular my photography is even if it's not always properly credited to me. It used to annoy the living daylights out of me but I've taken it as just something that comes with the internet. Plus, if people appreciate my photography then that's pretty much good enough. I just hate that some people alter my images, like crop them or edit the coloring. And most of the time this editing isn't good, it's just butchering the image.

And thank you to everyone who follows my blog :)

Those are really nice! It makes me want to try deco nails, but I haven't done it because they seem annoying to wear..

I like seeing my pictures around too.. it doesn't happen very often with cosplay or on tumblr, but because of my Sailor Moon blog, whenever I try to GIS for some Sailor Moon item I sometimes get MY pictures in the top results. Which is kind of cool, but also annoying because it's not very helpful to me, lol.

They're totally annoying to wear, don't get me wrong. I love them and all but totally not fun to actually wear them and try to do things. Typing with them is pretty hilarious.

Your cosplay picture has been circulating on tumblr like mad!! I was so delighted when I saw it, finally someone who is actually GOOD at portraying Usagi gets some credit :)
