Very cute, isn't it?
These are called "Nail-chip" which we paste on our nails. They are quite usuful as people who cannot let nails grow such as mothers and sportsmen are able to have fun with nail-art.
There is a large variety of nail-chips.

I heard that it takes 2 to 3 hours to make such as beautiful nails even nail-artists.
Do you know? Who made the nails on the right side is a high school student in Japan. Some Japanese girls has an efficient ability to make. Often It can be more professional than that of nail-artists as they only concentrate on making nails instead of study!

In Japan most people care their nails themselves, but there are wondrful nail-salons. Especially, in Tokyo there are really professional nail-artists in the salon.
The nail-chips which nail-artists made are original, modern, and unique.
Materials to decorate
In Japan there are many ornaments to decorate our nails. The pictures above are seals that have the shape of flowers, shyiny stones, and fine sand. These are very useful as we can put them on our nails easily. And they are cheap! I think they are about 3 to 4 reals. Despite the low price, our decorated nails using these ornaments look very gorgeious.
