MARCH NAIL ART COORDINATE, FLOWER AQUAMARINE on A WHITE DAY, A LITTLE GEL NAILS DO's AND DON'Ts


 

 Special Month, Special Nail Art for DoitsuPanda ^0^
My birthday was actually few days ago, exactly on 14th March  so yes, I'm an Aquamarine girl ^0^ Light blue is actually not my favorite color, but I want to make it my nail colors for March !!!
 FYI, Japan has a special day called WHITE DAY and it is  the same day as my birthday!! I used to imagine sharing a born day with someone famous, yet I think I got something even better! My birthday is celebrated all over Japan !! You must be wondering what Japanese do in this special day, right ?  White Day is still connected to Valentine, one month before. On Valentine's Day Japanese girls are the one who will give chocholate to guys and White Day is the chance for guys to reply the chocolate they receive by giving candy. Sugar's color is white and it is being used as the name of the day. Nowadays, this tradition of giving candies can be subtituted with giving other sweets like marshamallows, white chocholate or biscuits ^0^/


 Now, let's go back to the nail art part, hahahaha ! It's my third time getting GEL NAIL this year and I'm lovin my nails even more. Sometimes I even feel like I am "Naked" without all of these decorations on my nails >w< I am aware that there can be some damages if I have them too long, so I alaways try my best to balance my nails with some care course too.
 Here is a short DO's and DON'Ts from DoitsuPanda. CHEK IT OUT ^0^ 

DO's :
1. GIVE YOUR NAIL A BREAK
I usually try to keep the gel nails around 3 WEEKS MAXIMUM. The last week of the month will be resting week. You will notice that your nails will get thinner, that's why you will need a VITAMIN OIL to get back your nails's strength on the break time after you soak off the gel.

2. CUTICLE OIL FOR FRESH LOOK
 As you can see on the 3 pictures of my nails in this post, there are some dry parts around my nails. Cuticle oil can really save the day ! It will give you moist and healthy nails impression.

DON'Ts:
EATING POPCORN RIGHT AFTER YOU GET YOUR NAILS DONE.
That's right ! Don't ever eat snacks with your fresh gel nails no matter how mucch you want to do it. Believe me it comes from my own experience. I went straight to a movie cinema 30 minutes after getting my nails done and I had popcorn to accompany my hungry stomach. OMG ! It's like putting chemical stuff in your mouth. BAAAAADD IDEA , GUYS !! T0T
 


Last but not least, the nails details \^0^/
 I always love sparkles on my nails and I got some little diamonds as BLING BLING, YEIIYY!!
Little gold lining for some accents and TWO COLORS OF ROSES to mark the SPRING .

So, what do you think, guys ??!! Any suggestion for what theme should I pick for APRIL NAIL ART COORDINATION ? Feel free to write it on the comments section.
Thanks for reading, guys !! ^0^

LAST WINTER, VISITING DORAEMON'S DADDY AND FAMILY FOR THE FIRST TIME !!!! FUJIKO F MUSEUM JAPAN !!




Finally, winter is officially over !! YEIIYY, It's time to enjoy my favorite month, MARCH ^0^/ It is still a bit windy here, in Tokyo, but slowly I can start wearing SPRING CLOTHES \(^0^)/
 Okay, this post is just a warm up ! I decided to be super productive this month and catch up with my postponed stories !!
 Last December 2012, I had this super opportunity to have a whole one day visiting
FUJIKO F. FUJIO MUSEUM !! Who doesn't know him ??!! He is the creator of the famous blue cat, DORAEMON and many other famous characters, like PERMAN, NINJA HATTORI-KUN, OBAKE NO Q-TARO ! Well, for my readers who have been reading Japanese Manga, you must have known those characters. This museum is a MUST VISIT SPOT for anyone who is going to visit TOKYO,JAPAN !! ^0^ ^0^ ^0^ ^0^
 I must say this museum is not as humongous as Tokyo Disney Land, but I really recommend it because it is located in a very peaceful city called KAWASAKI. Mr Fujiko F Fujio spent a very long time living in this city and that is the reason why his museum was built here. You will need to take train and bus to get here. Just check the website here : (http://fujiko-museum.com/english/) The best part is, once you get to the station it is SUPER EASY TO SPOT the bus going to the museum !!
IT IS SUPER COLORFUL WITH FUJIKO F FUJIO's CHARACTERS ALL OVER IT !!
 LOOOKKK DOOOWWNN !!
 
 I KNOW, IT'S SUPER CUTE RIGHT ??!!!
 
 OH MY GOD ! I FORGOT TO INTRODUCE HER!!
I was accompanied by my close friend from Japanese Languange School, YOUKO!!
She is like a big sister to  me ^w^
 

 We rode the bus and it took quite some times to reach the museum.
However, you can entertain yourself by paying attention to the little details inside the bus.
LOOK AT THE HAND HOLDER !! THERE'S A FACE WITH EYES AND NOSE ^0^/
 

 AND LOOK AT THE BUTTON ! You have to push it in order to let the driver know where is your destination !! I LOVE THE HAIR ACCENT ON IT !! HAHAHAHAHA !!
 
 Once you arrived, prepare your ticket !! Not like any other amusement park, YOU HAVE TO BOOK THE TICKET IN ADVANCED. AND YOU CAN ONLY GET IT AT LAWSON (Convinience Store), JAPAN. There is this ticket machine called LOPPI. If you don't know how to buy, you can ask the cashier to help you. The Admission time is also decided. BE CAREFUL, GUYS!!
 

EXAMPLE OF THE TICKET ^w^
The price is around 1000 YEN and cheaper for younger kids ^^v
 
When visiting most of museums in Japan, taking pictures are not allowed. It goes the same way with Fujiko F Fujio Museum. There is this restricted part where you are not be able to use your camera. However, you can still take pictures outside the building and on the roof garden !


  Take times enjoying this place. Pictures really say a thousand words, right ?! Take as many as you can and pose like these cute kids !! ^0^

OR SOMETHING SILLY LIKE ME ??!! HAHAHAHA !!!
 
 As  I said before, the entering time of the museum is scheduled already, so you will have to wait for a while until the door is opened and ......................

GET READY TO ENTER THE WORLD OF FUJIKO F FUJIO !!! \^0^/ \^0^/
You will experience the artistic side of someone who dedicated his life creating master piece !!

 YOU WILL BE ACCOMPANIED WITH A TALKING REMOTE CONTROL WHILE TOURING THE 1st and 2nd FLOOR !
It is available in many languanges, so don't worry guys !!

I'm sorry I can't upload any pictures from those 2 floors because they consist so many private things like the making of the characters, history, replica and some original pieces of the mangas.
MY TIPS : TAKE YOUR TIME EXPLORING ! Listen to the remote guide and you can really feel how passionate he was while making characters.EVERY DETAILS ARE IMPORTANT,GUYS and I think YOU WILL REALLY NEED ONE WHOLE DAY HERE !!
 Okay, I will also give you another tips. This suggestion is based on my experience, but feel free to enjoy this place your way too !! ^0^
 Let's Begin The Tour Plan!!
 
1. EXPLORE THE 1st and 2nd FLOOR, SLOWLY.

2. THEN,THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART !
 One of the things which attracted me to come was THE RESTAURANT ! They serve so many cute special foods with Fujiko's characters on them. If you are willing to have that experience, GO STRAIGHT TO THE RESTAURANT TO TAKE A QUEUE NUMBER. I waited for 2 HOURS!! HOWEVER, IT WAS SUPER WORTHED !!!!!!!
 
LOOK, LOOK !!

SUPER RICE VOLUME, DELICIOUS !!

SUNEO RAMEN WAS SO MOUTH WATERING and I COULDN'T IMAGINE HOW THEY ARRANGED THE SEAWEEDS INTO A FACE !

I WENT TO THE MUSEUM NEAR CHRISTMAS TIME.
