Free! inspired nails, requested by an anon. To said anon, i am so so sorry that you had to wait 3 1/2 weeks for these. So much going on as of late, but i hope you like them. Assuming that you are a huge fan of the show, im sure you can tell mine are no where near exact, so you should probably take it from a fan art perspective. Everything on this blog is just me practicing with my left hand, so hopefully i will continue to improve, and things will be easier to replicate. Anyways, thank you so much for your request, i hope i did them justice. (From left to right: Free! logo, Haruka Nanase, Makoto Tachibana, Nagisa Hazuki)

Theimperfect10 and I are finally ready to announce ‘The Monstrously Mini Halloween Nail Art Challenge!’ We have been working together for the past week or so creating this challenge, and it’s been a blast. We decided on the themes together and the challenge dates, she came up with the name, and i created the outline/proctor from scratch (which was really fun actually). We wanted a halloween challenge with themes that were a bit different from the usual ones, so this is what we came up with.
You can post your designs any time between October 19th and the 31rst. You can put them up everyday consecutively for seven days, or every other day, or whatever best fits into your schedule. Please tag your posts with the tag ‘monstrouslymini’ or ‘#monstrouslymini’ (depending on what website you are using), so that everyone can find your designs easily.
Just for clarification, because i couldnt fit the descriptions on the outline, 2. your favorite horror story, can be inspired by anything from Stephen King’s ‘Pet Semetary’, to Mary Shelly’s ‘Frankenstein’, to an urban legend or a ghost story. 5. your favorite spooky song, could be like Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, ‘The Monster Mash’, etc. 6. your favorite creature, would be like a spider, cat, bat, ghost, etc. 7. your favorite creepy setting, is just the setting of your favorite horror movie/story, so like an asylum, grave yard, haunted mansion, and so on.
I will also be posting a list of all our challenge participants, along with links to their blogs/social media, on October 19th. You will be able to click on each participant’s name and be directed to their blog, so that you can see what designs they have come up with for this challenge. If you want to join, just go ahead and let me know, and i will be looking forward to seeing what you all come up with. xx Sara

My dear anon who wanted the Free! nails, i am working on them right now, and will finish them after my doctor’s appointment tomorrow, so expect them shortly. I am so sorry for the wait, but fret not, because they will be up very soon.

Nails in celebration of Polish Party’s one year anniversary/birthday. They are inspired by my inner non-existent party animal. Also to those of you who have requested nail designs, i am so sorry that i have been running behind. I keep getting more and more doctor’s appointments added on to my schedule. I actually just had my colonoscopy two days ago, and they found a polyp, which they have sent out for a biopsy. Hopefully it is not malignant, but we wont know for about another week. Thank you for your patience, and i will try to get them done as soon as possible.

So, I paint my nails pretty regularly these days. I also work as a barista/cashier pretty regularly these days. A few weeks back, I had a customer come in, a fairly typical, sheltered, suburban soccer mom, and she ordered a latte from me. She saw my brightly colored nails and said, “Wow, you’re so brave! My son asked me about painting his nails, and if it’s okay for boys to do that. Now I’ll tell him there’s a cool guy who does it too!” It was a nice moment, very cute.
Then, last week, she came in again, and said, “Hey, I’m so glad you’re here! I want you to meet someone!” She then brings her son forward, and says, “Okay sweetie, show him what you did!” And he throws his hands up, showing off his bright, sparkling blue nails. He shows them off, and I show mine off to him. He smiles. We fist bump.
Guys, I’ve only wanted to cry once at work before, and that was when someone ordered a large dry soy cappuccino on ice.
This time, though. This was a good cry.

Honey, I would paint your nails any day. One step closer to breaking down the widespread perpetual gender binary system, and demolishing the prevalent stigma towards male femininity.

Guns N’ Roses nails requested by an anon, also nailpornography asked about these as well. I hope the anon who requested these likes them, and that i did them justice. Sorry they took so long, i was honestly sort of putting them off, but i havent died yet, so thats good news. Also sorry that I butchered the ring finger, the skulls were so tiny that it was really hard to paint left handed. I have a couple more requests to do, but if you want me to do a design, just go ahead and ask me. Also there will be a new design up before the 8th, and then i have my colonoscopy, so im not sure when the next design after that will be up.

Anonymous said: Free,the anime sorry I didn't specify I didn't even know there was a band

Yes! I will atempt to do those for you, and hopefully i can do them justice. Ive got a few requests to do, but i will try to get yours done in a timely manner. Thank you for requesting!

anastasijalj said: You're perfect and I love your nail art and blog! Oh, and I saw the Guns n' roses request and I'm really looking forward to it and I hope nothing bad happens to you :)

Thank you! Im hoping nothing bad happens to me either, but if it die, i blame the anon (just kidding, anon, i wont blame you). They will be up sometime next week, so you can expect them around then. I hope you enjoy them!

Anonymous said: Free! nails?

Free as in the band? Yes, of course i can do that for you! If you dont mean the band, just go ahead and specify your request in my inbox, and i’ll definitely get those done for you. Im up to 4 requests right now, and i have one design that is a priority for my nail group’s monthly theme, but i will try to get these done as soon as possible for you.
