Japanese Halloween Nail Art Magazine Scans Part 1

I started my nail art career in Tokyo, which I consider to be the epicenter of weird and wonderful nails. It’s not unusual to pay $75-150 for a manicure there, so there’s a lot of nail salons and a lot of creative action going on. Every now and again, you’ll see French tips or single color gel manicures, but it’s usually all about the art- the cuter the better!

Check out some of the Japanese Halloween manis  from Nail Max magazine below- my personal favorite is the argyle and pumpkin (left column, 5 down). The Japanese don’t celebrate Halloween, so they’re just guessing at what’s properly “Halloweeny,” ie a lot of Japanese nailists add random candy canes to their Halloween nails.  But I think they do a pretty good job in general, considering it’s a totally foreign holiday.

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.
