Updates! New Nail Art, New Product Lines, Membership and More!

It has been a rollercoaster of a year for us here at Bling Up.  Dealing with personal loss while meeting some incredible people has been a blessing that we did not expect for 2014. Our staff, both on the business end and the artistic side has grown far more than we would’ve thought, and we’ve had the amazing opportunity to create new works, new designs, and now, even a new product line. With the new artists and staff, and ultimately, our new product line and designs, we have decided to move to a membership only site and service.  In the coming months, as we prepare to launch new products, our Bling Up family of websites will become a membership only service whereby clients who have been given access will be able to see and purchase the majority of our new products and product lines. We have new nail art, new deco cases, and exciting new products coming in the next few months so if you’re interested in being a part of our family, please sign up for our newsletter below. As always, if you have any questions, send us an email at cs@blingup.com and we’ll get back to you within the day.  Thank you. Please include me in your announcements! * indicates required Email Address * First Name * Last Name * Where did you hear about us? Friend Facebook Instagram Twitter Google/Yahoo Somewhere...

Japanese Nail Artists in Osaka, Japan

Japanese Nail Artists in Osaka, Japan

Although the staff here at Bling Up will meet with fellow Japanese nail artists within and all around Japan for meetings and socializing, I (the only male member of Bling Up), personally, have never seen how a professional Japanese nail art salon operated until our most recent trip to Japan this past May.  With the only comparison being nail salons based here in the U.S., I was in for quite an education. To be upfront, this education of mine was not one that was scheduled, nor was it one that I was particularly looking forward to when I found out that I would have to “endure” what I assumed was to be an hour of sheer boredem.  However to my surprised, I was told that not only were we going to attempt a 2 hour nail art set in 1, but that it would be the head artist herself that would be doing the work. By this point, I was curious and stopped staring blankly at the LCD TV that was quietly playing the typical Japanese drama. It began with a quick consultation, asking questions about the color of the base, design, what type of coating, and so on and so forth.  And of course, to make things interested, the owner of Bling Up (who you see here getting her nails done) decided to do a combination of 3 of their standard designs, which again, would’ve normally taken 2 hours. Once everything was confirmed, work began quietly.  And I do mean quietly. No chit chat about the weather or questions about one’s personal life.  No equipment clanging, squeaks or...

Custom iPhone 5 Case Sweet Japanese Decoden Style with Ice Cream Cookies and Crystals

Custom iPhone 5 Case Sweet Japanese Decoden Style with Ice Cream Cookies and Crystals

One of a kind and original, we have here a decoden showing off cute little confectionary pieces.  A mirror is surrounded by whip cream that has little hearts, cookies, a yellow star and a pink ice cream with syrup.  And of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a little bit of bling so we added Swarovski round solitaire as well as a clover rhinestone jewel.  Like all of our custom deco designs, this is an original custom cell phone case that was made from scratch and by hand.  We only have 1 so if you’d like to order this one or for custom orders, please contact us at cs@blingup.com.
