Here’s another look at some more Halloween-themed Japanese nail art. This is a scan of a page from Nail Max magazine- not my work, just to be clear. Click to enlarge!
These nails feature a lot of acrylic 3D detailing. Of course, since these nails were made in Japan, the ghosts are adorable, plus some teddy bears sneak in (second set down, left column).
Ah, Japan…cute, wacky and weird. It was an interesting place to spend almost a decade in- sometimes frustrating, sometimes wonderful, and sometimes very lonely. But it was where I discovered my love of nails, got my first apartment, my first real grown-up job, and did a lot of growing up. I’ll be heading back next month for the Tokyo Nail Expo- I’m very excited, but it’s always a bittersweet feeling to go back to a place I’ve loved and left. (But all the rhinestones and fab nails at the Nail Expo should ease some of the pain!)
