26 Impossible Japanese Nail Art Designs

The Japanese are known for their love of art in various forms. Just like the Japanese dragon art, Japanese flower art and Japanese maple art, Japanese nail art embraces the very essence of Japanese way of life through myriad colors and something very unique and intricate such as nail extensions. This form of unique body art cannot be imagined without these exquisitely crafted nail extensions. These nail extensions provide the perfect platform for developing the tiny intricate designs known exclusively to the Japanese. They extend almost up to two inches and interfere with daily rituals and activities in a big way. Yet the Japanese love their art and for every hurdle, they come up with an invention.

There are a whole new breed of nail artists who experiment with charms, sculpture powder and other pieces of jewelry to offer an illusion of depth and give a three-dimensional effect to the whole creation. Although some artists work on the real nail, there are others who make use of airbrush techniques and hand painting on acrylic nail chips. The acrylic chips are then stuck to the person’s nail from underneath. Nail art has crossed the frontiers of manicure and fashion and has become a well developed form of art today. One can get custom made nail extensions made to cater to their many moods and attitudes.

    Actually quite impossible! I do not think we can get these designs at home. Not for me, at least!
    One would need professional tools to get these.
    Besides, I would not WANT to get messy stuff like this as well.
