Daily Dose of Inspiration- Happy Pill Cup

In Asia, anything can be adorable! This happy pill cup is actually from Taiwan. I lived in Taichung in 1999 and studied Chinese there. It was a really full-on experience: street markets, stifling weather, unbelievable urban pollution and gorgeous countryside. Taiwan has a lot of contrasts and is definitely worth a visit if you’re anywhere near that part of the world.

There’s even a top shaped like a pill. It says “ASP” (aspirin) to let you know it’s not a bad pill. Can’t give the wrong impression, can we?


I painted the base of the nails with a blue franken polish, then did the white top and details with gouache paint, then sealed the whole thing with Seche Vite.

I took loads of photos, but in the interest of getting the page to load quicker, here’s a collage. I included a little red cross and some heart monitor details.

I guess my time in Asia has made me vulnerable to all things kawaii. I suppose there’s worse things in the world, right?

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.
