Hearty Nails: Pastel Horror Yum Yum Show

I refuse to let go of Halloween. I'm the one that watches Nightmare Before Christmas every year, for Halloween AND Christmas if I can.
This song (Pastel Horror Yum Yum Show), this band (SuG), this video (down at the bottom) was what made me start liking this pastel goth thing. When the album (Lollipop Kingdom) came out I got so obsessed the nail art came out practically on its own. In the video you can barely see the gravestones, I had to work with a few screen captures as reference. I also used pictures of the clothing line as reference. [1] [2] million$orchestra OHP

Ignore the paint on the thumb, I had a little accident.

More evidence of the paint accident. Also here you can see just how long my nails were back then.

Hearty Nails: A9 Rainbows

Oh Alice Nine. The band that gets me back me every time I happen to lose interest in them. Every single time. As it happens, this past week two of my top three favourite bands have pretty much gone to hell (including the one that "helped" name this blog), so I've bounced back to the alices (this only sounds funny in Spanish) by myself.
This nail art is a really very old one, but the song it came from is still one of my faves.

I've got a nail per member (or rather, their outfits): thumb for Nao (drums), index for Tora (left-side guitar), middle for Shou (vocals), ring for Hiroto (right-side guitar) and pinky for Saga (bass and totally my favourite member).
