Canmake 25


Since I've gotten back from Taiwan, I've been sporting what I can only describe as "super sparkly, cutesy Asian-like" nails. I've been wanting to get into over-the-top nail art but I'm pretty incompetent at that sort of thing. Doesn't keep me from embellishing my manis occasionally though.

Canmake #25


I would've been more pissed at how sheer this turned out (the above is... four or five coats?) but it was just too sparkly and cheerful to really dislike. It would've been much better layered over another polish though because the opalescent multi-sized glitter is actually very pretty and bright. (The photos don't capture it at all...) The mani originally had three flowers but the third one fell off before I could take this photo.

Pretty! I recently got some Canmake for Christmas and they are very nice. I think I might actually have this one; perhaps I will try layering it when I wear it later this week! Love the flowers, very cute!

I love it! When I was in Japan I hardly saw anyone with opaque nails...I kind of felt like a freak with one of the OPI Burlesque glitters on. This looks really cute though and right in line with the type of nails I saw in Japan.

Now I'm curious! Do you have any examples of what you'd consider "over the top cutesy sparkly asian nails"?

Lovely color, by the way. I don't have anything that resembles that. You make me want to buy more nail polish even though I already have some on its way in the mail.

I feel like glitters from Asia are awesome for gradient manis though

@jenny: you would not believe how annoying the flowers were to apply. They're actually quite thick so they stick up from the nail! :)

@ladyluck: hells yes! Although it was a balmy 68F with blue skies where I live yesterday. I want the longer days though.

@vixen: Non-opaque glitters kind of still annoy me but I think I'm getting used to them...

@rojosa: The Cynful Nails blog has some really funky OTT nails. :)

@sia: it's great@

@adrienne: Yes, definitely. I always suck at gradients though...

I don't like sheer polishes except for the glittery ones. This is super girly and pretty.
