Who is a fan of Sailor Mars here? Can you see those raging hearts on fire? I love the combination of white and red, plus the intense and wacky face of Rei Hino.
Great freestyle for our gorgeous ladies! Nude nails are beautiful, especially if you partner them with pink and gold 3D stickers and effects. Love the wand, by the way.
What do you think I noticed here? Right, you are. That pink to silver ombre is outstanding. I know the prints are lovely, but I just can’t seem to take off my eyes on the base color.

The foreheads of Luna and Artemis make this set surreal. But I’d like to focus on those 3D golds on her middle fingernail. They are making the whole thing look regal.

Who else agrees that Pluto is one of the coolest among the girls? You will love these nails, for sure. But, will you believe it if I say that it is handpainted with Rini and Serena?
Here’s another handpainted set, but with Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask. I think I got addicted to their love story when I was young. Anyways, these nails are gorgeous!
I am in love with how these stiletto nails are so neatly made. And, the ombre effect of that nude to pink is nailing the whole thing. Luna and Sailor Moon are clearly happy.
Do you remember how Darien would leave rose petals whenever he saved Serena? I love the glitter effect on the night sky in these nails, and those rose petals are the bomb!
This is another handpainted art. How can these nail artists be so artistic? I’m jealous! Diana is so cute on her thumb, too, but my favorite would be the glittery french tips.

I love the gradients of pink, blue, and green here. I wonder how they were painted without even a single mistake. I’m getting cotton candy vibes. How about you?
Ooh, love these strips that look like they were taken straight out of a comic book. Black and white stickers for your manga obsession. It started as a manga series, anyway.
How about alternating the colors pink and purple? I know it’s girly, but you gotta admit that it looks lovely. You can buy the stickers online or at any nail sticker shop.
These 3D nails represent the planets that our sailor ladies stand for. From pinky to thumb: Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, and the Moon. Keep the base color nude for balance.

Quick and easy nail art for the ladies who like it neat and intelligent. Just apply the essential white french tip, add moon and stars, copy Luna’s head, and you are all set.
Ok, I really like the shades of purple they used here. Super dark on the one hand while super light on the other. Luna and Artemis look so adorable as well.
Another Luna & Artemis set of nails. These magical cats are trendy. And, I must praise the artist because I am sure that these are handpainted!
DIY and handpainted. I wonder where these girls are getting the energy to be creative and artistic. I wish I could also trust my drawing skills. Don’t you just love the color combo?

You might just like the design on your ring fingernail, so here’s an idea. These are sticker prints, so I think you can do this set independently.
One word: celestial. Purple really looks magical, especially when partnered with gold and silver glitters. With the addition of the stickers, your hands will indeed look galactic.
Let me just emphasize that I added this set because the rainbow-like base is so fascinating. I am curious how they marble the colors and make them look like this.
Just a simple set of the girls’ sailor uniforms. Which one is your favorite? I’m gonna have to pick Mercury’s on this set.
Red symbolizes fearlessness and strength. Girl power at its best, y’all! Aren’t those 3Ds too special not to include?
My favorite on this set would be the stickers showing Sailor Moon’s transformation. Do you also look forward to that scene whenever you watch it?
Luna in outline style drawing and different base colors. Lovely combinations at their finest.
