nail art for kids

Yes hello, Vetra’s backstory actually breaks my heart thinking about the stuff these poor girls had to go through. I gave you the cute, now you have to cry with me

Kintsugi or kintsukuroi is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.”

I don’t think I’ve mentioned this on my blog before, but in my non-nail-art life I am a psychiatric nurse, and I work with children and adolescents struggling with severe mental illness.  Some of the kids dig my nail art, so lately I’ve been trying to paint designs that I think they’ll enjoy.  This is one of those, because it embodies the hope I have for all of them (and for myself as well): that we can find a way to live with our broken bits that makes our lives more beautiful, not less.

Michael, that’s gay.

Woohoo for inconsistent artstyle! This is so heavily referenced I want to d i e, but I can’t draw hands holding stuff, or bodies side on. References are so helpful, man.

How would the RFA + V and Saeran react to MC who paints their nails while they are asleep? You can decide on the colour or design!

omg I have so many cute ideas for this?? Get ready Anon!

Zen: 

* It was a relatively normal night. The two of you had gone to bed, or so you thought. 

* All of a sudden he feels something cold on his fingernails

* Mc?? what are you doing?

* He looks down at his nails and is taken back

* His nails were a really pretty silvery white with little red swirls and patterns

* Is confused as to why you are doing this in his sleep?

* But is super excited because these look so good??

Yoosung:

* Ok this boy is such a light sleeper

* And gets terribly freaked out easily

* When he feels something on his hands he S C R E A M S

* poor thing ruined the last nail you were doing (you were a bit surprised he didn’t wake up until now tbh)

* After calming down he notices what you were doing

* Erupts into the biggest grin seeing the little LOLOL characters

* Some people tease him about it but he could care less

* loves seeing his nails and being reminded of you when you two are apart

Jaehee:

* She is such a heavy sleeper 

* Woke up late for work and had to rush around so much she didn’t even notice

* Halfway through work she notices her nails are a pastel yellow with little white hearts on her pinkie 

* Can’t stop smiling for the rest of the day

* After work she gets some more nail polish and tools to surprise you

* Makes sure to thank you when she gets home

Jumin:

* Wakes up and goes to move a strand of hair from your face

* notices his nails are a dark purple with little cat faces and paw prints

* Went to surprise you with breakfast in bead one morning and instantly noticed his nails

* This sweet little cinnamon bun was so happy

* After finishing making the food he woke you up with soft lil forehead  kisses and profusely thanks you through the whole day
