Purikura on your iphone! Charuca Purikura

Hello everyone ^_^/

Today I want to talk about one of my favourite things. Purikura!
Purikura (プリクラ) is a Japanese word from the term print club and it refers to photo booths where you can take photos and then cutify them using included effects on the machine. Super kawaii, no?

Here is an example taken a few years ago, while travelling in Japan with one of my best friends ^_^

As you can see, it's a lot of fun and the possibilities are endless! Unfortunatelly for those of us living outside of Japan, decent Purikura machines are almost impossible to find.

But with smartphones, this problem is easily solved. As an avid iPhone user myself, I am always checking out all the Purikura apps. So I was very excited to receive a very interesting email a few days ago.

It was from a company called Blokwise and they provided information for a new iPhone app they have developed called Charuca Purikura.

Here is what they have to say about it:

Blokwise, the digital innovation producer, releases “Charuca Purikura” on the App Store. An app developed with the famous visual producer Charuca.

After waiting so much, It’s time to raise the curtain!
We present to you Charuca Purikura, an incredible app that allows you to decorate your photos with the cutest images from the Charuca collections. It’s a free download and brings a gift pack with a Kawaii collection.

You can charukize your Facebook photos downloading them into the app. Also it has the option to choose an image from the device gallery or take a new picture with the cam.

The pictures can be customized adding Frames, Stamps, Speeches and drawing with the Freehand Mode. Has a micro-purchases system that allows you to access all the collections: Kawaii, Toxic, Baby and Gothic. You can see the items of each collection and if you like it, you can buy it in a easy way.

And that’s not all! When you finish to charukize your picture, you can share it with your friends on Facebook, send it by e-mail, or save it in your device.

Is really fantastic, super cute and with the best japanese style.
It will be available for iPhone and iPod.

Explore your creativity and go to charukize your photos!

Of course I downloaded the app to check it out as it sounded very interesting. Downloading the app is free and it comes with one collection of stamps, frames and speech bubbles. If you want to download the extra collections, you can by them inside the app. It is very easy to use and you can go back and forth making any changes you want on the photo. Here is a charukized photo of B-chan, my dog ^_^

Isn't the end result adorable? For the record I want to state that I am in no way affiliated with Blokwise. I got the informative email from them and as I like kawaii purikura, I found it interesting so I am sharing it with you, dear readers. 

On a sidenote, you might notice there is a new kawaii tag in the blog. Kawaii means cute in Japanese and it is a whole concept in Japan and a huge part of Japanese pop culture. I decided to make such posts from time to time, sharing my kawaii finds with you all. What do you think, would you find such posts interesting?

Music and glitters, all in one post!

Hello everyone ^_^

Tonight's post is full of two of my favourite things, glitter and music!!! How do these two combine? They don't! But still here they are. Let's start with the glitters, which as you can imagine, are on my nails. I just got the new China Glaze Prismatic Chroma Glitters and of course I had to wear them asap!

 I used Snazzle by Ulta3 as a base and then on my index and ring finger I am wearing Full Spectrum and on my thumb (that you cannot see here XD), middle and pinky finger I am wearing Prism. Full Spectrum is pink and Prism is purple so they work really well together. I loved all the colours from the collection but these two were my favourites. I used two coats of each over the silver nail polish and then some top coat. I am loving them on my nails, they really come alive especially under sunlight.

Next time I think I will try them over pink and purple creme nail polishes. I bet they're gonna look fab ^_^

And now for the musical part of this post. Quite some time ago I was given the I love Music and I love your Blog award by the lovely Tina of All the Vanity. Thank you Tina and I am sorry that I was so late in posting this.

So I now have to list my 5 favourite songs. Which is no easy task, as I am a huge music fan. But after much thinking here are the 5 most important songs to me. I won't tag anyone with this but if you want to do it, I would love to see what your 5 favourite songs are. Here I go with my list.

#1 is Wasted Years by Iron Maiden. This was the first song I was ever hooked to, when I was just a little girl. It shaped my future taste in music quite a bit.

#2 Enchantment by Paradise Lost. Paradise Lost are one of my favourite bands up to this day and this is one of the most beautiful songs they have ever written.

#3 Spirit by Dead Can Dance. I love their music more than words can say. Such gifted artists they are and I can't wait to see them live again in September ^_^

#4 Vanilla by Gackt. This was a really hard choice. I adore Gackt and he is such a gifted and multidimensional artist. I decided to show you his fun and quirky side (okay and his sexy abs too, can you blame me?).

#5 Osaka Romanesque by Kanjani8. All my friends know how much I adore Kanjani8. A sworn Eighter I am and proud of it too. Osaka Romanesque is the song that brings tears to my eyes every time. Which is why I wanted to share it with you all and close this post with it too. Thank you for reading this far :)

HITS phenomena, a multichrome glitter party

Hello everyone ^_^/

there is a glitter party going on my nails and I wanted to share it with you ^__^
If you are a nail fanatic, you will have heard of the latest offering by HITS, the Phenomena multichrome glitters.
As soon as I saw they were available, I snatched all four. And since I couldn't decide which one I liked best, I wore all four of them at the same time!

As usual my base was my favourite black, Color Club's Where's the Soiree and then a coat of each of the glitters on each finger (sealed with top coat). From left to right we have HITS Phenomena Air Glow, Moonbow, Borealis and Afterglow. The bottle I am holding is Afterglow. For some weird reason, Moonbow and Afterglow look the same in every photo but believe me they are quite different. Afterglow shifts between purple and orange tones while Moonbow goes from teal to magenta.

The only issue I had with these was the brush. I love HITS polishes but the brush is so weird. Not very easy to use as it is too big and not flexible enough. But the fabulous colours more than make up for it!

So what do you think dear readers? Do you like these colours? Would you wear any of them?

May nail inspiration, custom made nail polish bottles

Hello everyone ^_^/

It's May, which means my blog's second birthday is coming up, yay!!! I am already considering a ton of ideas to celebrate, but I will have more information on that in an upcoming blog post.

Today it's time for another nail inspiration post. Lately I have seen an interesting trend popping up in Nail Max. Custom made nail polish bottles. And we are not talking just adding some rhinestones or a sticker, we are talking having your nail polish bottles match your nails. As expected from the very talented and creative Japanese nail artists.

Have you ever considered doing something like this?

There was even a custom nail polish bottle championship. The lady bellow won first place.

And here we have the roses on second place and the blue butterfly bottle in third place. The butterfly design was my favourite.

Here are a few more designs. You can see that they creators went all the way with these!

I have to admit I am impressed! As you can see every method was used, from air brushing to gel.

Would you ever try doing something like this to your nail polish bottles dear readers?
