Since everyone loves Japanese nail art, or at least likes to look, here’s some more pictures I found recently. I got some questions about nail art in Japan, such as cost, etc. I don’t know too much about it but it generally runs $65 US to $125 US, according to the magazines. Of course lots of jewels, art and the like will be more expensive. You can also order custom pre-made tips if you prefer that. Funky nail tips can also be bought in a drugstore for around $20-40, depending on the design. I have seen some amazingly hideous ones.
I went to a nail salon in Tokyo once, when I had really long natural nails and I broke the pinkie. I didn’t want to chop them all off, so I asked for an acrylic fill-in. It was an expensive salon (one nail cost $20), but they didn’t sterilize the tools (I found this out on my way out when they just re-used my file on another customer!) Yeech!
Anyway, onto the photos!
These are different- maybe good for ladies who like Science Fiction? After Nail Salon, Tokyo.
Usually, fake toenails sort of give me the creeps, but I like these. After Nail Salon, Tokyo.
Wow, words fail me here. Stars, smiley faces, guitars, drumsets…
Flames? Horns? Looks pretty tough, though I think I prefer the nails plain.
Finally, someone gets vegetable nails- though fruit seems a lot more popular. Note the corn even has hairy tassels on it.
A fun sort of psychadelic design. For images above from Ange Nails, Tokyo.
Just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean the Care Bears are off-limits! Salon Rie, Tokyo.
These remind me of fish eggs for some reason. Dear Nail Salon, Tokyo.
