Anime and Video Game Inspired Nail Art from Japan

Japanese salon, COLOR'S Yellow, calls itself an Otaku nail salon and it's no question why. Check out these stunning works of art created by their nail artists!

If you happen to live in Japan or are visiting make sure to allow yourself plenty of time, a super detailed nail can take up to 20 minutes to complete according to their facebook! If you're interested in pricing it's available here in Japanese, the Yen amount is per nail. You can view their full gallery of "Otaku nails" on their facebook page. I can't wait to visit Japan again and make a trip here.

Archie Comics MAC Cosmetics Collaboration Sneak Peeks!

I've been anxiously awaiting the Archie Comics line for MAC since hearing about it at San Diego Comic Con last summer. Recently a collection of teaser images showed up on my tumblr dash. I managed to find out some information from various instagram posts and some sleuthing on the Archie Fans Message Board. This line is due for release sometime in the Spring, if you know of any further info please share in the comments!

Please keep in mind all this information is second hand so it may not reflect the actual product and be the final imagery or text used. I am just reporting what I found.

Some of the official promo images

The Girl-Next-Door Blonde. The Betty Cooper line incorporates shades of pink, coral, peach and plum which reflect Cooper's bubbly and loveable personality.
Eyes: Black Swan (black with gold pearl) eyeliner, the Caramel Sundae eyeshadow palette and the Optimum Black opulash mascara.
Cheeks: Cream Soda Light neutral coral satin powder blush.
Face: Flatter Me Pearlmatte face powder.
Lips: Girl Next Door lipstick (vivid blue pink) and Stay Sweet lipgloss (light lavender pink).

The Vivacious, Spoiled, Rich Brunette. The Veronica line is sultrier and features darker make-up. Think plums, navy and black.

Lips: Ronnie Red bright red lipstick and Strawberry Malt lipgloss.
Eyes: Petrol Blue pearlglide intense eyeliner, Bad, Bad, Black (saturated with intense black with extra volumisation) opulash mascara and Spoiled Rich eyeshadow palette.

Epic Geek Nail Art from KayleighOC

I am so impressed with the talent of artist KayleighOC on Deviant Art. Kayleigh doesn't just paint her nails. She takes it to a totally new level with extensions, 3D effects, and super detailed paint jobs. I've chosen a few of my favorites to showcase here.

You can view Kayleigh's extensive gallery of nail work on her Deviant Art page.
