I Come in Peace

I’ve been wanting to make this super cute alien print from Pinterest into a design for a while now and I finally got around to it! ✌🏻👽🌸

For the past few years I've started off the year with cute character-inspired designs and I wanted to do the same this year! While I was browsing for inspiration I ran across Tarepanda - a lazy, droopy panda character form San-X - who I felt would make a really cute design!

Year in Manicures: 2017

Happy New Year!
I hope everyone's been having a good start to their 2018 so far!
If you follow me on Instagram (@nyanails) you may have seen that I was in BC over the new year. Since I was visiting a friend I didn't have much time to sit down and write blog posts, so it took me a little while to get this whole long post written out. Before starting in on new 2018 designs I wanted to take a look back at some of my favourite sets of nails from 2017!

I may live in Canada, but I'm not a big fan of the cold weather. Regardless, I'm always excited for December because of EXO's Winter Album releases! This year they released their Fourth Winter Special Album with the title song Universe, and the cafe theme of the music video gave me some fun ideas for a nail design!

Christmas 2017

Merry (belated) Christmas! 🎄🎅🎁
I’ve had a lot of stuff going on for the past week and a half and didn’t end up having time to do any Christmas nails until after the holiday was over 🙈 Regardless, I hope you guys like these holly nails and I hope you all had a nice holiday with your loved ones ❤️🎄

In Memory of Kim Jonghyun (1990-2017)

This is a design I never thought I would have to paint, but it's one that is extremely important to me. Jonghyun was, in every aspect of the word, an inspiration and he will be dearly, dearly missed.
