Gothic Lolita Nail Art

DSC05431 Gothic Lolita Nail Art

I’ve been looking for a good excuse to work some lace style nails (not that I need one) and this weekend proved just the time.  So I sat down on Thursday night and spent a couple of hours coming up with these beautiful modern, gothic lolita creations and couldn’t be happier with the way they turned out!

Each one is hand painted using a cheap black and white nail varnish from a discount store, and the lace type art work is done with a nail dotting pen found at The Face Shop.  They give a fantastic degree of control and with a little imagination you can create all manner of things.  I added some simple clear diamentes and my favorite – Cameo’s – to the thumb nails!

Total LOVE!

  1. Thanks to you and Violet I’ve been doing my own nail art too! I don’t have long nails, and I stick to 2D designs because I wreck my nails on a day to day basis, but I’m loving it. People always comment too, even though my designs are simple.

    I really like this black and white set you’ve done, they remind me a lot of my illustrations!

    • Super Kawaii Mama /

      Natalie: Oh excellent! And that is an idea too, perhaps we could do a set actually based on your illustrations..

  2. Awsome!!! And I’d love to see the outfit too.

  3. Love the cameos!

  4. Ooo, very fancy. I hope we get to see the outfit?

    I am far too uncoordinated for this kind of thing, but certainly admire your excellent efforts xx

      Amy: Yes, you sure will. Saving that one till tomorrow. :)

  5. woah! those cameos are amazing! are they designed to be for nails or did you steal them from somewhere else?

    • Super Kawaii Mama /

      Camile: The cameos are from the jewellery section at the fabric shop. They are by Bitz and Pieces and come in a pack of about 8 I believe.

    I like the change in background color.. not ‘blatant’ like you would expect. It has such a nice balance. SO FUN!

  11. *gasps* Are we going to see SKM… in a gothic lolita co-ord? I’m excited by this potential new direction; I have plenty of friends who wear lolita on a regular basis and would love to see what you can do with it!

  12. Yes, please post photos of the outfit :) I’m very intrigued :)

  13. Pretty! I need to get a nail dotting pen too! I have no idea that they have it at The Face Shop!

  14. Fran /

    Can you post a picture of this nail dotting pen at some time? I’d really be interested in seeing the ‘making of’ these designs when you have time.

  15. Great design! I’ve recently received some cameos but have to idea what to pair them up with. I’ve always wanted to try to draw lace, but it’s so hard to draw with my left hand as I draw straight onto my natural nails.

  16. Jaede /
