Nail art of Japan – Manicure in the Far East Japanese style

Updated on November 27, 2011

If you think that a french tip manicure is a way to pamper yourself and look great, think again. In Japan, nail art has been popular for many years now. And these manicures are so fancy that many Westerners have never seen it before. This hub is all about the culture of nail art from the Far East.

So what is the difference between a regular manicure and the nail art of Japan. Nail art from Japan is just so much more extravagant. You get designs on your nails which can be of anything, from Hello Kitty to beautiful scenery. Besides designs, many nail art specialists offer 3D effects as well. They create the effect using many ornaments such as beads, fake diamonds, little flowers and more.

In Japan, nail art is very popular and often featured in magazines. There are lots of nail salons that specialize in nail art. You can choose designs that they offer or create your own designs. There are just limitless ways in which you can do your nails. Other places in Asia are catching on to nail art because of the influence of Japanese pop culture. However, these beautiful nail art are not cheap. Be prepared to spend 40 to 50 dollars on some elaborate designs.

There is a nail art festival in Japan that is held every year for the past twenty years or so. Lots of artists present their piece of art to be judged. You will find some of the most fancy and elaborate nail art here. This event is sponsored by the Japan's nail association. The contest is divided into three parts, nail care, nail sculpture and nail art. In addition to the contest, there are show rooms showing potential clients the newest and hottest in the nail industry. This is an extremely interesting event for those that love nails.
