When Midori told me that she was going to be offering nail art I jumped at the chance to sit down with Emi! I have always been impressed with what people can do with their nails - pinning nail art on Pinterest, trying to figure out when would be a good time to try something out other than my clear pink.
Once my appointment was set up I started to get an idea of what I wanted - something with color and a little sparkle. I browsed through Emi's nail magazines from Japan and was a little distracted from all the fancy out of this world designs - realizing also that pointy is the new fashion in nail shape. Not just long and round, we are talking pointy!
I found a design that gave me color and sparkle - color blocking using turquoise, pink, coral and sparkle white. [I am not the best nail model since my fingers are VERY stubby.] She uses a gel product and after three days no chips. The only thing that I have to get used to is the color on my fingers!

If you are in the Portland area you can contact Emi @ Midori Lashes & Skin Care [5 0 3 2 8 2 2 7 7 7]to make an appointment and for more information go to their website. This is a great idea for special occasions - I think this would make a great bridesmaid gift or mother of the bride/groom gift. A little something special without standing out too much.
