Spring manicure fun in Japan

I'm not really what I'd call a girly girl, but it had been such a long time since I'd splurged on some self care that I wanted to get a mani and pedi done. I've always seen so many people here in Japan with cute nail art, so I thought why not. Spring nails it is!

A purplish-pink color with a glittery sheen, some sparkles, and some delicately painted-on flowers, and I feel happy every time I look at my hands. They're definitely giving me all the spring vibes even though we've still got snow forecast this weekend here in Niigata. 

If you need a fun manicure, I got these done at Sinden in Tokyo - they are an English speaking salon that do hair, makeup and nails. 

Anyone else embraced the fun nail art that Japan seems to offer at most nail salons?



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!
