I found some amazing Japanese nail art on the Internet recently- marbled claws with giant rhinestones- I mean the size of a grape- but the pictures are tiny thumbnails (haha, literally!). I want to show you guys, but I think I’ll have to ask the salon to send me the photos directly. I don’t know if they’ll agree or not, but for now, I have a couple other Japanese nails to tide you over.
I will definitely be returning to my usual franken schedule, but this week has been crazy and I can’t get funky with the nails because of work. Don’t worry- Green Week is coming from next Monday and I have a couple crazy nail art ideas up my sleeve. Hint: loads of rhinestones- like a treasure chest full!
Above two photos: Nail Salon Absorb, Tokyo. Nails recently seem to be getting shorter, though the pointy shape is still everywhere. Of course, cute stuff like cupcakes, bows, and hearts are always in fashion in Japan!
Interesting “window” nails. I don’t know if they use a clear nail and paint around it, or if this is actually black acrylic and clear acrylic. Salon Blue Reef, Tokyo.
You just can’t have enough plastic baubles on your nails! I wonder how long they stay on….Nail Salon Goldy, Tokyo.
And for those days when you’re feeling shy and want some low-key nails ….super-long yellow/orange confetti sparkle with some tropical flowers and rhinestones. Musee Shibuya, Tokyo
