Style Bite - Deco Nail Art

Hi everyone! I thought it would be fun to feature my favorite 'style bites' every week or every few weeks. I LOVE fashion (obviously) and I want to share my bites with you! ;)

Lately, I've been uber obsessed with DECO NAIL ART!!! This nail style can go from crazy to cute to dark to.. whatever! You can paint and glue onto your own nails, do it to some stick on fake nails or simply BUY them from my FAVORITE HANDMADE NAIL ARTIST!! Yes, I'm obsessed with her work! ^_^

Her name is Aya, she's 26 and lives in Japan, near Tokyo. She's a professional nail artist there and lucky for us, she sells her work on etsy! All you have to do is pick your favorite pair of nails (or pairs, I know it's hard to pick just 1) and measure your nails with your measuring tape (you should already have one, you do wear Meow Kiki, right?! ;)

Make sure you visit her store here:
..but make sure you come back and read the rest of this, k? I know it's hard not to get distracted. :p

Here's some of my favorites from Aya:

Sale Chie, lolita cherry pie fake nails

Kyohou, purple lolita fake sweets deco nails

Now, some of you are probably thinking "I can't wait to get these nails! But I want to do this style NOW! How do I do it?" Let me show you! :)

I stumbled upon this girl that makes these awesome tutorials on youtube! Her name is Lepei and she's from the Netherlands. She enjoys decorating her nails and decided to share her gifts with everyone on youtube - you have got to see this, she makes it look so easy!

Her youtube is here:

And of course, my favorite tutorials from her!:

Now, you might be thinking... "I don't have all that stuff! How am I supposed to decorate my nails?! :(" My answer is: improvise! Work with what you have, don't worry about what you don't have. It's all about being creative and if you're reading this, you're likely creative! So have fun and I hope you've enjoyed my Style Bites! Until next time! xoxo Heather

I love that shop! Thank you for sharing it, Heather!

I'll surely get something for my next vacation! As a nurse I can't really wear any fun nails for work...

Thanks Pili, I'm glad you like it! :D

I knowwwww, I can't wear fun nails while I sew either but I plan on getting some for weekends and photoshoots. ^_^
