Japan World Cup Kawaii Nails 2014

Hi everyone!

Today I am showing you my World Cup nails 😀 ! Thanks so much to everyone who has taken part, I have enjoyed looking at all your nail art, they are all fantastic! To check out everyone’s nail art click here.

Due to the amount of interest that has been shown in the World Cup competition, I have decided to create a new page called ‘The World Cup 2014 Nail Art Gallery’. This page will be released over the weekend, explaining all you will need to be featured 😀 !

So moving on to today’s nails…

The World Cup team I came out with was Japan – which I thought was very exciting! I decided to base my nails on their culture rather than football (as I will be posting lots of football nail art throughout the World Cup).

The concept I chose was ‘Kawaii’, which according to Wikipedia is ‘the quality of cuteness in the context of Japanese culture’. In relation to nails however, it is mostly used to describe 3d nail art. For example, Kawaii nails are bright, colourful, cheerful, cute and are covered in nail art accessories (they’re awesome)!

So based on this, here is what I came up with:

Japan World Cup Kawaii Nails 2014And here are some macro shots of each individual nail (I’m new to the macro setting but loving it so far) and some pictures with my pink football 😀 :
