Last post is saging.

Anyone have good tips on how to use press on nails, or how to make your own? Since they're plastic, can I literally use acrylic paint to create designs? How easy are they to remove and store, and how many uses can they last for?

I try to keep my nails painted, but it's hard to keep up with, and regular polish takes so long to dry and chips. Gel seems like a pain in the ass to remove. I'd love any insight to your best methods, thank you kindly!

>> No.10775883

this question is too fucking stupid. it's not even jfash related. just use google if you're this retarded.
t. anon who makes her own press ons.

>> No.10775897

Okay anon, so what paint products do you use to make your own press ons? I can find the gems and bits myself. I'm looking for ones that won't dissolve in acetone.

Also, how is this not j-fashion related? Lolita and gyaru in particular have very detailed nail designs. Anons have even had argument here about judging girls on the state of their nails.

>> No.10775900

I buy fake nails in bulk from AliExpress and then aggressively grind them down with my Dremel to fit my tiny nail beds (I have tiny child sized hands and most press ons don't fit me correctly)
Then I rough them up with some sandpaper for better adhesion and put gel polish over them. The number of uses you can get out of press ons depends on your lifestyle and how gentle you are taking them on and off. If you make a set, it wouldn't hurt to make a few extra nails in case one gets lost or damaged. Also, highly detailed designs don't look good with lolita, they look tacky. It's okay in gyraru because that style is meant to look trashy and tacky

>> No.10775905

>ones that won't dissolve in acetone
Nayrt but good luck with that. Acetone is an extremely powerful solvent and most nail products and press ons are purposely made to be removed with acetone.

>> No.10775908

>highly detailed designs don't look good with lolita

Define highly detailed. I've seen 3D sculpted acrylic nails that would probably look great with sweet lolita. Like a lot of things it depends on substyle.

>> No.10775912

This is excellent advice, thank you nonny. What products do you use to adhere and remove them?
And I get what you mean as far as highly detailed - it's wiser to make some sets that can be versatile rather than specific for ease of use. Since my wardrobe has a specific palette and recurring themes, I'd probably make sets that coordinate with cherries, or bows, or the like.

>> No.10775986

I meant that the paint itself won't dissolve - just the glue. Sorry for the confusion.

>> No.10775989

The polish will still dissolve if you're soaking them off in acetone sadly. If you want to remove press on nails without damaging them, I recommend either using sticky tabs (less secure but easy to remove from your nails and the press ons), or if you want to use regular glue, then use one of the methods where you soak them off with dish soap and warm water, then let them dry and use a dremel or efile to file away the excess glue.

Mine usually fall off naturally after about a week and I just save them and clean the underside with alcohol before and after filing away the glue. You could also probably just pop them off after a light soak in plain warm water if you're afraid the method with soap would be drying or bad for your hands or natural nails.

Think back to what made you love it. Stop looking at insta lolita and what's popular and trendy. Comparison is the killer of joy. If you have never been in a comm, go try a big meet. If you're in a comm try to lone lolita it up or just dress up whike hanging with normie friends.

After an insta cleanse re-evaluate your lolita style. Maybe you're actually into a different substyle but got swept up in the trend flow.

Try out a different alt fashion.

Anon, it's not exactly what you're looking for, but I'm working on developing a machine knit cardigan with a very similar eyelet pattern. My machine is standard gauge (4.5mm), so it could knit something pretty fine, but not that fine. Photo is the punch card I made + a photo of what it's supposed to look like when finished (because on the punch card it's distorted due to the way the machine needs to read it). Finished photo is not mine btw (it's from a hand knit chart I translated for the machine), my crazy work schedule has been keeping me from actually testing it out so it's purely theoretical right now. I'll post updates in the handmade thread once I get around to knitting a swatch if you'd like to see it.

>> No.10776297

This is wonderful! Thanks anon. I have a knitting machine and finally have some time to learn how to use it. I didn't really see any instructions for knitting these patterns with a machine, only by hand, so the punch card alone is very helpful.

Picrel is an example of something someone else has knit with it, so it's also not able to knit as fine as the store bought things, but definitely enough to do what you've shared here.

>> No.10776340

If you'd like to knit this pattern with your machine in a semi-automated way (vs manually moving stitches around each row), you need to have a machine that has a lace carriage. You can knit lace on a manual machine too, but you will have to use your transfer tool to move stitches around by hand.
I had trouble drawing on the sheets to annotate the lace carriage directions (even permanent markers weren't really sticking) and the k carriage returns, but I could write it out/create a diagram for you if you need it since some of them are a bit weird (mostly the eyelet at the very bottom of the heart and one at the top center that's actually a centered double decrease instead of just a single slanted decrease)

You can wear a necklace along with neck ties. although if you’re new to sweet maybe hold off on $100 necklaces until you have a more cohesive sweet wardrobe. you don't really need a necklace if you already have neck ties.

I'm tall and have big (though narrow) feet. Will shoes marked as size 26~26.5cm be okay for 25.5/26cm feet?

>> No.10777257

I have 25.5cm feet, which are also skinny and narrow, and in theory 26cm is the smallest size you should buy shoes in - you need to add an extra 0.5cm to get your actual shoe size. Sadly, I end up swimming in most shoes my size width-wise. If you have the same problem, my advice would be to make sure the shoe provides ample support and is made of sturdy materials, and get a nice orthopedic insole to fill it out a bit. The extra 0.5-1cm will really help not to make them too tight to walk in with said insole.

Not sure which brand you're buying from, but just as an FIY, Angelic Imprint platforms are always a horrible fit for narrow feet. Had to sell both pairs I ordered, I knew I'd break my ankles walking in them with how wide they were.

for cutsews, look for cute details. ruffles on the bottom and sleeve, peter pan collar, lace details, bib neck, pintucks, neck ties, puffy sleeves etc. Safest bet is to buy from established lolita brands (AP, Baby, etc have lots of cute cutsews). Look on mercari for second hand stuff from Japan.

Once you're feeling more comfortable, for dirt cheap cutsews that are very casual, check out Axes femme and other casual brands on Closet Child. you can find cute tops for $3-$10. Pic related is something I'd wear in a pretty casual coord (I wear mostly classic)

dampen with water then use the steamer.

Two for the thread:

1. In Closet Child's "Payment" section at the bottom of the site, they say they have 'installment payment' available. Is it available to overseas customers, and how do I request paying that way?

2. Would it be a bad idea to try and build a coord based around miko/shrine maidens? I do like the design elements and the red/white color scheme, but I know wa lolita is a tough one to get right. I also feel like SJW types will hop on the cultural appropriation part, but that's a bridge I'll cross/burn when I get there.

The shrine maiden thing would be pretty cringe. One of the only whiteys I've seen actually be able to pull off wa is mysterious_condiments

>'installment payment' available.
I believe this is just a standard credit card option in Japan. Their credit cards give you the option of installments. Foreign credit cards can't do the same thing.

The installment payments aren't under the "Overseas" section so I'm assuming it's a Japanese credit card thing. You can use PayPal's 'Pay in 4' if you wanted to use a payment plan, but you work directly with PayPal, not CC.
