Here are some of my nails that I have had done OR do myself here in Korea!
Korean nail art is a little plain with colors so sometimes I go a bit brighter vs most girls~ my ideas are always a watered down Japanese nail design or something I see in magazines here, but a bit more fun. Koreans like to have one blinged out finger on each hand if they do anything “fun” it seems, so I usually try to do that as well with my ring fingers! I will update as I do new nails

My nail box has a mix of USA, Japanese, and Korean gear atm~ So I will list out whatever I remember using for anyone interested. For nails I do myself at home my final clear polish is Seche Vite (Which is awesome) or UV Gel if time allows.
Random nail salon in Seoul did this when I asked for something “Summer”
Salons like to alternate colors a lot here!
More Daiso Polish! Its really good for only 1,000 won♥ I believe this is called “Peach Cosmetic”
Daiso brand Organic Farm nail polish in Pastel- Mystic Aqua, Pastel- Pink Whisper, Sparkle- Blue Cubic
The names are English, but written in Korean super tiny at the bottom~ so if you want this it will be faster to just eyeball the color at Daiso!
Did these myself ♥
Channel Nail Polish #495 Mica Rose + Revlon #912 Posh Pink + Etude House Juicy Cocktail Silver Sparkle
Rose foil stickers from Etude House + tiny bling blings from Daiso
I made these after watching Creamy Mami ♥ the purple is#705 Lilacism from Essie
This was inspired by a girls nails I saw on the metro here in Seoul~ She had a french manicure and her ring finger was covered with white flowers! I did that on every nail and picked a sparkle pink for my ring finger though! The stickers are from the brand “Skin Food” here in Korea I believe, but lots of stores sell them.
The ring is by the Japanese brand 6% Doki Doki♥ I’m making a Korean version of it soon muhaha!
I had these done at a small shop around Borame~ Just one color with airbrushed design.
I paid about 25000 won, overpaid for what I got so I have not been back to the shop
