Another edition of the weird and wonderful nail art that Japan brings to the world! Nails seem to be getting shorter, I’ve been seeing fewer and fewer of the killer talons. Still some interesting stuff, like felt and lace, as well as more variety in the colors.
But what happens when you wash your hands? Does the felt get all sketchy?
I have no idea how they got the argyle so clean…I think I need more practice! Nail Salon Anenome, Tokyo.
Nice water marbling…another thing I just can’t get right. Still trying though! Salon Ange, Tokyo
Sorry this photo is so tiny. I’m not sure what the theme is…did she get attacked by a feather boa? This one is definitely an attention getter! Salon MJ, Tokyo.
Kimono design with wisteria and camelia sculpture.
Very simple, but I like them! Above images from Scarlett Nail Salon, Tokyo.
And because it wouldn’t be a complete post without some long over-the-top nails, here’s a few, all from the Allie Charm Nail Salon in Tokyo:
I Poodle You! Very nice detailed poodle.
The disembodied legs on the left just crack me up! Nice freehand painting job, but something about those legs…
Kimono pattern with black accents and sculped flowers.
