Casual and useful art pieces in my hands.

DYLON COLOR CENTER

I got Tsumori’s cute pink-beige “Neko-Dot” cashmere scarf last year. I do love it but the color was too similar to my face… to say the truth, it was not nice in me.
I don’t want to make it being put in the closet forever. An idea had came into my head…maybe I could change the color of it? At first I thought I’d dye it by myself. But then I found famous dye color company DYLON doing dyeing service in Shinsen (only 1 station from Shibuya).

2 weeks ago I went to DYLON COLOR CENTER and chose the color number 11 Bordeaux from “multi” series.
Shop staff was professional of coloring and showed me some samples. She said it can be softer color and remain cute dots of the scarf. The price depends on weight of the fabrics. This scarf costs 3,000yen to dye.

10 days later they leave phone message it was done. I went to the shop again and re-born coloring of the scarf made me happy! I can’t wait the beautiful autumn day to put it on!

Gel nail art

Gelnail

I had my nails done at a gel nail art salon.
virth+LIM in Aoyama offers nail art services for those with short nails.
(atelier+LIM branch in Osaka)

Their nail art style starts off with a clear gel nail polish, and drawing using a gush acrylic tool.
They also have different kinds of studs and glitters perfect as a complement for your nail art.

LIM’s nail art designs are fancy and dreamy, which makes it very unique and very appealing for most girls. Girls who have short nails with no prior experience having a nail art are now trying them out, and a lot of nail salons offer similar designs.
