January`s nails

So I have been getting gel nails for 3 months now and just adore them. The color and shine lasts for about a month and the hard coating protects the nails from chipping and breaking! It is so perfect for me because I can never be bothered filing or painting my own nails.
T and I go to a cute nail salon near the centre of Umeda and it takes about 1-2 hours each time (to remove the previous ones and apply the new ones). Cool huh?

I always opt for something relatively simple (see the picture above), but I have seen some crazy nails during my time in Japan. Many girls here love to adorn their nails with gemstones, rings, ceramic characters and much more. I`ll put some pics below...

  2. Interesting content.

    Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

    However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.
