Japanese-Style Watercolor Nail Art

Japanese-Style Watercolor Nail Art

Ciao bella,

As a Nail Technician, when I worked mostly full time, I enjoyed painting art on finished polished nails. I owned different fine brushes and painted free style art with some rhinestones to glam it up. I owned a nail art paintbrush kit and would sometimes decorate one or two nails on each hand or sometimes all ten. Rainbows of colored stripes and swirls, flowers and gold accents with a holiday decal were my fun and quick specialty. Certainly made people happy!

Recently there has been a new development in the world of nail art. Hailing from Tokyo, with a home and salon also in Vancouver, Canada, comes an innovative gal. Her name is Jasmine, a Japanese Nailist who is a certified nail artist. She trained in Yokohama and wants to bring Japanese nail art to the forefront of our industry creating Neiru! This is a subscriber online workshop to train Nail techs the latest in Japanese trends, technique and style. The watercolor art is just amazing, simulating a unique and one-of-a-kind design. Picture your fav watercolor painting and visualize a small part of it on your nail! Perhaps a flower which Neiru is popular.

So the next time you make a manicure appointment

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
