The Japanese nail art scene is presumably one of the most vibrants in the world. Why? Look at the hordes of Shibuya garu that practically live to care about their looks! It has to be more than just nail stickers for casual nail fashion; salons are dotted all about town to enhance you with the most elaborately designed nail chips.
The Japanese nail industry has grown to 200 million yen, so it’s no wonder this year’s event drew in a crowd of approximately 50,000.
I have to admit the nail artworks presented at the Tokyo Nail Expo 2009 were pretty impressive.
