What’s Japanese nail art?
Nail art refers to the creative decoration of finger and toenails with pictures or designs. Its history in Japan goes back to the Heian Period (from 794 AD to 1185 AD) where girls would color their nails with flowers.
These days, ‘gel nail’ is the most popular and common among Japanese girls.
They use a gel which hardens under UV or LED lights. They’re very hard to crack or mess up, so they are perfect for busy modern girls. And that gel also works to protect the original nails underneath. Thanks to this versatile gel, the variety of techniques, designs and pictures is limited only by your imagination.
Going to the nail salon? Or doing it by yourself?
There are many nail salons with professional “nailists”. You can talk about designs with them, or even let them do whatever they like. Each nailist has a different sense and style, so it is important to find your favorite.
