It’s a sweet, sweet 5 day weekend in Japan, but I’m going to be painting for the upcoming Tokyo Design Festa on October 24 and 25. It’s all original art, and I figured that my nails qualified, so I got two adjacent booths and am preparing goodies to fill them.
Here’s a little sample of what I’m making:
Tiny clay cane Santas with Swarovski crystals, though it feels weird to paint these in September!
Fish decals with dotting tool gravel and bubbles.
Pink overdose! Pink Konad lace on dark pink with pink and silver hearts with silver polka dots.
Super girly- pink, black lace, decals, hearts and rhinestones.
And what have I been wearing on my nails during this burst of creativity?
Essie Cloud 9, FOUR coats. It wasn’t as streaky as most Essies are, and I needed to behave myself at work.
I haven’t been doing any manis since I’m trashing them with all this painting. I need to clean the Konad plates and stamper with nail polish remover as I’m working, so that pretty much destroys anything on my nails.
So, if you’re in Tokyo on October 24 and 25, come down to the Tokyo Big Site forum and see me in person.
Anyone remember this from the NES Legend of Zelda? I might turn into that crabby old storekeeper if things don’t sell, but I’ll be happy to meet some readers in person!
