Sushi Nails


I. Love. Sushi. In fact, I love it so much I freehanded some sushi on my nails! I spotted this photo by @I_heart_nailart on Instagram, and couldn't resist giving it a try. It was the first time I tried doing anything like this and I have to say I'm semi-pleased with how they came out. 

I used: Essence - Absolutely Blue (two coats) / Essence - Wanna Be Your Sunshine / Essence - Off to Miami / Catrice - I'm A Survivor (from the Glamazona collection) / Hema - Summer Party / Etos - 122 white / Bys - Black Satin / Essence - Quick Dry Top Coat / Small detailing brushes

More after the jump!

I had ordered a cheap set (much like this one) of tiny detailing nail art brushes ages ago and kind of neglected them, but they were just what I needed here. The brushes seem to hold up pretty well, too, even after cleaning them with remover a few times.
Oh, and in case you're wondering what the blobby thing with the tail on my index finger is - it's shrimp tempura. Duh. 

I obviously need a lot of practice with drawing small things on my nails! 

Have you ever tried recreating food on your nails?


  1. Yum! I'm in the mood for Sushi now!

  2. I love these and sushi!! Great job :D

  3. I always tend to paint so big on nails but I have to keep reminding myself to paint smaller. SMALLER! Mmmmm I love tamago. I always save it for last as a bit of a sweet dessert type thing. :D

  4. I love the precision on these! Very cool concept done well.

  5. Tempura nail art, it cant get any better..

  7. Colorful! I think they would make me want sushi allllll the time, though! :D
