Dedicated to the infinite joys of nail art and design: handpaint, airbrush, colored acrylics and gels.

Where she shops: Tat (www.tatusa.enstore.com) just launched and they supply a lot of the art supplies I buy when I go to Japan.

1. This J Pen is like a fountain pen for nail art, it creates really detailed designs. I bought white and black ink to try it out. So far so good; I may buy more colors!

2. This brand has so many cute gems in different colors and finishes. I bought 2 and 3 mm round shapes and 3 x 6 mm diamond shapes. In Texas I wouldn’t have been able to find these anywhere else.
