What? Toe nails? why… I wear socks most of the time and sneakers who ever sees my toe nails? Then I realized, summer will one day be upon us. Then what? Can’t wear socks with those sandals can you Why not show those suckers off next time you are at the beach. Presenting gyaru toe nails!
Here I got some interesting 2 page magazine spread about summer nail pedicures!
The most interesting about getting this type of pedicure on the feet is that it will cost you about 14000en which works about to be around $150.
Probably my favorite looking one would be this,
The dark purple base color helps the nails to stand out a bit more and the alternative silver color breaks up the otherwise drab single color choice.
So I was flipping my way through Egg magazine for some summer inspiration when I came across an interesting arrangement on the head scarf. Normally when I am being lazy I might think about having the head scarf worn in a manner pictured below. Quite simple really. Kind of like a pirate.

I was looking through the newest (or the newest one I could find) popteen magazine online. They ran a very cool monthly where they ranked the top couple of questions their readers had regarding getting the holy grail of perfect Smokey Eyes (???).

I also recommend that you go search on youtube for some double eyelid tutorials, its much easier to make sense of it once you see [...]
What is a himegyaru? For an explanation on that I have already posted something up about hime gyaru. So feel free to read that first. I think it would be fun to find some more pictured examples of the himegyaru inspired style. There are many magazines and websites you can look up to find Himegyaru style, however I find that the closest thing hime gyaru have to a magazine is maybe Ageha (which I was told strictly is not hime gyaru … agejou).

Gyaru makeup covers a wide range of ideas but none so increasingly popular as looking like a doll. The basics of which are big circle lens, perfectly flawless skin and of course big fakelashes.

Gyaru Black Dolly Makeup [...]
