Reblogged this on Der er en lykke i livet som ikke vendes til lede:Det at du gleder en annen,det er den eneste glede.Der er en sorg i verden som ingen tårer kan lette:Den at det var forsent da du skjønte dette.Ingen kan resten av tiden stå ved en grav og klage.Døgnet har mange timer.Året har mange dage. and commented:
Love this;) funny;)
Glad you loved it so much! Thank you for the visit and reblog 🙂
LOVE IT !!!!!!
Thanks! Bizarre is a synonym after all 😀
Yup, that’s unique! 🙂
Glad you agree 😀 Loved yours!
Definitely unique! I’d have trouble typing with those long fashionable fingernails. Great one, Madhu!
Particularly the ones with the metal name tags!! Thanks Fergie 🙂
For me, one of the most amazing things about Tokyo were the stunning girls. Love their style.
These girls were amazing. But I found some of the street fashion bizarre. You know the kind with pink hair and frilly baby doll dresses with lacy socks!!!

‘hahaha’ – those fingernails I maybe to old, because I looked at your excellent photos and admired the long pink scarf and the arm jewelery – and so it was the fingernails which was the theme – unique…. 😉
I just HAD to have photos of those nails 😀
What happen to the beautiful kimonos ??? Same when I was in Japan, the youth was very extreme in fashion and that is nearly 35 years ago.
Seems like Kimonos are strictly for special occasions 🙂
I know .. I bought a kimonos when I was in Japan – a male .. “smoking jacket” in beautiful black “lace” – still have it and haven’t worn it for years .. but every I had it on .. people had to touch the jacket.
Had my eyes on a wedding kimonos too – but it would have coast $15.000 – the one I wanted.
Wow! That would have been a bit much 🙂
It was a very posh shop and they only had one kimono in the whole window – totally spread out with the most wonderful hand painted pattern. They didn’t have it my size. Can see it now .. then I think about it.
Wow!!! I thought a friend of the family does some wild nail art for her customers. It’s similar to these but nowhere near the length! However, everyone has the right to be as unique as they want to be :-). After all, I do it when I wear my hair in an afro…hehe.
Of course we all do! But I couldn’t do this even if I wanted to!! 🙂
fun, artistic photos…great quote
Thank you! Have a great weekend 🙂
Definitely unique expressions of temperaments! That hair is something else, too ~ Kat
Must take up a lot of time and effort 🙂
These are fabulous, but I don’t know how they get anything done with these!
Neither do I! Thank you for stopping by Livvy 🙂
These girls are crazy looking. Super capture of them together Madhu.
Thanks Emily 🙂
Amazing street fashion.
Those are definitely some unique fingernails. I don’t know how on earth they can use their hands for any function at all. 🙂
Yup, you hit unique right on the button here 🙂
Wouldn’t like to get into a fist-fight with those ladies 🙂

Great interpretation of this theme!
Fascinating fashionistas…you can’t keep from looking…style is so unique! Love their wigs, have always wanted to try a long blonde wig for fun!
Love ’em! Fantastic nail paint jobs. Wish I had the time/patience (& I’ve jsut broken a nail anyway…) 😀

Stunning photos from a stunning photographer ! Totally relished and loved the visual treat….but…A LOT ! Love ya Madhu
Heavens these girls must not be able to do anything! I know that once my nails get to a certain length I can’t type even. It’s fascinating, very pretty but totally bizarre 🙂
Well, well…how can they possibly do something useful in life? Ha, ha…with those nails…but very unique indeed. Great art and great photo!

nice shot of these Japan girls
Great photos for the challenge, Madhu. I’ve never been to Japan, and only have pictures in my head of Japanese women in kimonos. 😀

I love them – they all look like real life Barbie dolls

Those are most certainly unique individuals.

A street is a perfect place to find unique 😀
Rarrrrr. I don’t want them to be my girlfriend if they keep their nails like that. 😀
Uhm … what fun they’re having! Don’t you think they’re like bright modern versions of the old Chinese Empress’s gold nails?
Those long nails look a bit scary! Are they real or fake?
Great interpretation, though!

OMG @ Street Fashion in Japan – that is like an extreme episode of TOWIE!!
Very unique. Well done Madhu.
The pictures are colorful and reveal some interesting cultural attributes. The quote is true – all your lovely pictures reveal your lovely temperament.
Unique indeed. And those nails! I wonder how they can do normal things with those. 🙂
