P.NailsTalk about XXX artistry! The visual mixture of intimate parts and sex toys from: Pinky’s Nails in Toronto are this weeks, Cunnt Claws! The artist working at Pinky’s Nails salon are still one of my day one references in terms of taking an idea and neatly executing illustrations onto the nail canvas for their customers. Interesting and descriptive hand painting skills are key for aspiring nail artist wanting to make a break through into the industry and Pinky’s Nails are a good example of that.

Inspired by Japanese cosmic cartoons like, “Popples” and “Yums Yums”, Sekiya’s developes her crazy appeal for lively palettes. The main highlight that sets Yurie’s identity apart lies within her humor to expressive arts. Melo, Cune and Rue are the visual characters wearing glittery eyes with a pom pom tail displayed in multiple personalities.

Yurie Sekiya artwork is very girlie, fun with a spunky edge. The entire process to come up with a concept and then see it all play out into existence is another part of the project that over 1 million thousand and counting nail artist around the globe consider a sacred “piece of mind”. An intimate love between the artist and his or her guest: all the favorite pieces of nail goodies bought to fit on a canvas 1cm wide! Get into it, as Kim Bui shares this moment with us:

 Inspiration HIGHlight: “I came across Yurie Sekiya’s work a while back and I knew I wanted to create nails with her illustration style with attention specifically to her character’s eyes! They are their own little worlds of galaxies within itself. I like getting lost in something I’m creating, and that’s what her art emulated to me. The detail and designs within one area, as an artist you get absorbed in as you draw, which is the same effect as the viewer. The same feeling happens as your eyes scan over the piece. It’s the type of art that makes you initially smile, it’s bright, cute and the details will sure pull YOU IN!”

 Design HIGHlight: Bright-saturated colors, dreamy pastel, and 3d with a little bit of everything! These all matched Sekiya’s color palette. False eyelashes and sculpted acrylics to design the 3 dimensional portions the bold iconic eyes and cloud design. Last, added accents of :glitter, rhinestones, confetti, swarovski crystals, striping tape, studs, and PEARLS and nails-did!

 Words of Wisdom: Always remember to put yourself and your style into the pieces you create. People can go directly to the source, if they wanted to see it perfectly done or recreated, but the nail artist’s point of view and distinctive interpretation of the art notion is what makes it unique! Put detail of yourself that you want the client or viewer to experience through your work, that’s what I think is important visually important.

Comment below and share with us your thoughts!! Stay tune again for what Kim Bui has cooking for us!
