Crazy Japanese 3D Nail Art
Wow this is really cool and weird and a little bit creepy, but I think I'm diggin it! Remember when a manicure consisted only of slapping on some red paint, a top coat and calling it a day? But then we got more creative and started airbrushing little designs on our nails, sometimes sticking diamond decals to spice things up. Well it has been taken to a whole other level and these nail technicians are taking their art very seriously!
My friend recently invited me to go with her to get Japanese 3D nail art done. I wasn't sure what she was talking about, but after doing some research on it, it has opened my eyes to a whole other dimension in the world of manicures. This technique got big in Japan about 5 years ago and it is starting to get more popular here in the US. In fact, it is so popular in Japan that they actually hold contests to see who can turn out the most outrageous and wildest designs. These artists go crazy with the embellishments using feathers, diamonds, pearls, jewels -- basically everything but the kitchen sink. The results? Kind of insane, busy and crazy, but for a special occasion, I think it's fun to switch up the old predictable manicure. I only have one question.....how does one go to the bathroom without....snagging...or.....things getting in the way? Hey I had to ask, you know you were wondering it too...
