Japanese Nail Art

ネイルアート

Nail art has become a big fashion item for Japanese women (and some men) over the last few years.

Japanese Nail Art

Elaborately painted and sculptured nails complete with flowery rhinestones and lacy stick-ons (known as nail chips) are popular with the teenagers in Shibuya, at graduation ceremonies and weddings.

The trend is similar to the colorful decoration of cell phones known as decoden and the impulse to decorate movement in traditional Japanese art - kazari.

Numerous nail art salons can be found in Tokyo and other big Japanese cities.
