Hi everyone,

Japanese nail art takes your average polish to a whole new level. Some designs I’ve seen are stunning while others seem a little crazy!

Artists glue small jewelry, beads, rhinestones and other fun decorations onto each acrylic chip to create extremely intricate designs. Can you imagine how long it must take to finish an entire set? Acrylics with 3D designs are available to order online and certain nail salons will offer this style as well, but it costs a pretty penny. If you’re interested in creating a statement that goes beyond a bold polish, you’ll certainly turn heads with this 3D trend.



What do you think? I love the artistry with these, but wouldn’t everyday activities become difficult with little jewelry hanging off of the tips of your nails? Some also look a little dangerous… careful not to poke an eye out!

What 3D Japanese nail art do you like? Would you ever try this style?
