Nail Art In Japan

ネイルアート

We looked at Japanese nail art a short while ago and were so impressed we fingered our photographer to go out and find us a few more examples of elaborately manicured hands.

Japanese nail art has taken off on the east and west coasts of North America with a number of salons in New York, Vancouver and Los Angeles offering Japanese style manicures and nail chips.

And oh yes, you can still hold chopsticks, drink and giggle into your cell phone wearing these.

Interesting content.

Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.

There is no doubt that the work on such nails is extraordinary but I do sometimes wonder about this fashion of putting the darker colour (often black, gold or yellow or sometimes green) on the end of the nails. I often do a double take because the first-glance impression is of a dreadful fungal infection! I'm sure that is not the intention!
