The ones I picked out were Mizuiro and Fairy Kei, both named after specific Japanese styles, and the limited edition Love Sayuri because hell, it's limited edition and it has freaking BUTTERFLIES in it. I might be a rough and tumble sort of femme, but I couldn't go past nail polish with butterflies in it. Sayuri are also offering absolutely adorable paper dolls designed by the amazingly talented Laura Gooding with each of the polishes at the moment, and I am such a sucker for a freebies.

First I'd like to show you Mizuiro, named after a subset of Sweet Lolita based around a blue and white palette. It's not widely known outside Japan, so here is an example.

Next up is Fairy Kei - you might be more familiar with this style as it has a bit more penetration in Western climes. Fairy Kei is all about soft pastels, layering, and cute cute cute!

Finally, I'm delighted to show you the "signature" polish from this label, Love Sayuri. I had no idea how holographic this was until I got my bottle - the swatches on the site do it NO justice. This one just blows me away. These swatches are layered over a plain lavender polish.
So there you are! Since I am a terrible terrible enabler, I think I should also point out that Sayuri Nail Laquer are not only gorgeous, but are actually having a 20% off sale from now until Mother's Day. Go check it out! If you can only afford one, don't leave without your own Love Sayuri - I've seriously never seen anything like it!
