Japanese Nail Art

In Japanese nail art, nail artists use hand-painting or airbrush techniques on on acrylic nail chips that are then attached to the real nail underneath. The artwork work can also be done directly on the hand (or foot!) While most of the two-dimensional art is designed to give some depth and the impression of three dimensions, actual 3-dimensional art is practiced as well using sculpture powder and the addition of charms and small bits of jewelry. Intricately & creatively painted and sculptured nails complete with flowery rhinestones and lacy stick-ons (known as nail chips) are what Japanese Nail Art is all about. Nail Art has become a big part in Japanese Fashion for women (and some men too). It took a while for nail art to gain popularity in Japan until Japan Nail Association was formed. Veterans members of the Japan Nail Association have been working to promote the industry for the past 24 years. But it is only during the last decade that the industry has begun to boom and nail artists have made their mark on the Japanese fashion industry.
