Japanese Nail Artists in Osaka, Japan

Although the staff here at Bling Up will meet with fellow Japanese nail artists within and all around Japan for meetings and socializing, I (the only male member of Bling Up), personally, have never seen how a professional Japanese nail art salon operated until our most recent trip to Japan this past May.  With the only comparison being nail salons based here in the U.S., I was in for quite an education.
