tokidoki nails, nail art blog

I have a tokidoki diary for 2012 and I bought it just for the beautiful pictures.  I was flicking through it the other day and I got inspired to tokidoki nails…except it was really difficult and my poor nail art skills didn’t do it any justice.  But then I saw an easy peasy polka dot one that I could do and henceforth, this blog post was born.

Tokidoki makes me go gaga!  Obviously this tokidoki-inspired nail art should be renamed colourful polka dots.  It’s really easy and I had a lot of fun putting my nail dotting tools to good use.

Here’s a picture of my nails without the tokidoki background.  It’s actually really pretty with the bright colours and it somehow reminds me of Skittles.

The nail polishes I used were : Rimmel London I love Lasting Finish London Clouds (2 coats), Australis Nail Colour Rub-a-dub-dub*, Rimmel London I love Lasting Finish Tangerine Queen, China Glaze Salsa* (swatch), FACE OF AUSTRALIA Luxe Nail Enamel Minty Mojito*, Ulta3 Nail Colour Bottle Green, Ulta3 Nail Colour Orchid*, Nicole by OPI I’ve Got The Power*(swatch).  {* means PR samples}

And just because I can…here’s a picture of me and one of my sisters, Y, with a tokidoki wall  which we salivated over – this was taken in Brisbane in January 2010.  Love love love.  I meant the tokidoki wall; not so much my sister!  Kekeke!

And damn…I’m wearing an uber-short dress – look at my manly muscly calves *shudders*!    But those were the days when I had skinny arms – le sigh…

So are you a mega fan of tokidoki too?  I know friends who have tokidoki handbags and keyrings and make-up.  I only have a tokidoki diary and a Hello Kitty tokidoki toy.  Gah!  But that’s because I can never find places which stock tokidoki stuff…and when I do, it’s when I have no money to buy stuff.

What’s on your nails this weekend?
