WARNING: Lots of pictures!

The manicure I have to share with you today is inspired by one of my favorite mangas/animes, Kamisama Kiss (Kamisama Hajimemashita). You can read the manga on MangaFox or watch it on Hulu for free! If you love InuYasha, you might want to give this one a try. There's only 1 anime season but more anime are supposed to be released in August and we're *hoping* for a second season.

(This is the ending theme song which gets stuck in my head like nothing else!)

For this manicure, I'm trying out BLUESEA Butterfly Shaped Black with White Nail Art Decoration # BLUESEA-FB02C.

 As you can see from the picture, you get 2 pieces of these nail art decorations. They cost $4 per package. They were easy to apply and I did like how they looked. However, these just are not for me. They snagged on everything which made me thankful I just recently cut my hair. I wish they were a little bit smaller or thinner, as I think they would be easier to wear. The weird thing that bothered me the most about these is the weight. Maybe I'm just being too picky, but it really bothered me to have that little bit of extra weight on just two fingers. You wouldn't think you'd notice something so little and seemingly insignificant but I certainly did. I used nail glue to hold these on, and they were quite difficult to remove - I think just because of the odd shape.

For this manicure, I used Shany Magnetic 04, Daring Digits Ectoplasm, Shany Nail art polishes 04, 06, 09, 12, 16 and 17.

 Sorry this picture is so blurry, but you can see pretty well how much these stand out. Now granted, I probably should have placed them a little bit nicer on my nails but I still feel they would have snagged things regardless. (I didn't notice until later that you can see a loose thread attached to the butterfly in my pictures.)

So the entire reason I used these polishes as I did was to get a pretty cool glow in the dark effect, and it didn't quite turn out the way I expected. Here's one shot under black light.

  1. Aaargh I hate when things snag on your nails! I feel so handicapped when that happens. It looks like a massive amount of top coat still wouldn't be able to fix it. Still, it looks nice. Even if it's just for pictures. I saw this really cold mani with grass and miniature people once, it would be impossible to wear but SO awesome!

    1. no amount of top coat would fix this! I seriously should have thought out where I was placing it on my nails first. oops. I'm just mad I didn't get better pictures! oh well, next time! I think I've seen a manicure like that, so weird!
