Japanese Nail Art and Tutorials

Nail art is huge in Japan. Whether its leopard print or floral, pearls, rhinestones or 3D. Its all the rage. This trend has now started to find its way into the western world. The singer Kelis has recently started wearing 3D nails. Nails inc now offers nail art as part of its manicures at debenhams stores nationwide. The recent s/s 2011 London fashion week featured models sporting all manners of different nail art and inside the London Trocadero they have a 3D nail art bar offering Japanese style nails.
Below you’ll find some tutorial videos from YouTube showing you how to achieve the look.
