OPI Tokyo Collection Has Nail Art Trends to Watch Out For

All You Need To Know About OPI Tokyo Collection

Why choose OPI Tokyo Collection? Because you want the inside scoop on the hottest new nail polish trends.

OPI Tokyo brings so much life to this nail polish collection. From the eclectic fashion, vibrant nightlife and world-renowned cuisine to the rich traditions including matcha tea ceremonies and zen gardens.

On the front line of beauty is this vibrant city where being kawaii (cute) is almost a legal requirement. They are so obsessed that every year, you’ll find nail enthusiasts at the Tokyo Nail Forum, a two-day convention where pro’s show off the newest trends and techniques. On a recent visit to the city that inspired our late Spring 19 collection, we curated edit of the patterns to bring to your salon this year.

3 Dimensional Nail Art

Adorning fingertips with standout 3D art is nothing new for Tokyo, with chains, threads, beads, feathers, flowers, and even tassels spotted hanging off nails. Ideal for the client who isn’t afraid to stand out, traditionally in Tokyo locals have adorned all five nails, but recently they’ve cut it down to two or three. If full-on 3D is too much, tiny embellishments, typically in shades of gold, are a hallmark of Japanese nail design.

It’s all in Nail Colour Details

Think of those cartoon inspired nails you loved as a teenager, and then bring the grown-up version in your salon. Intricate and cool, illustrative motifs are the perfect way to brighten up winter days with flowers, foliage, houndstooth, and anime characters favorite in Tokyo. Insider tip – before attending anime conventions, Japanese superfans often get their hero’s embellished onto their nails before the meet and greets to stand out.

OPI Let you “Think Pink” this time

If your client wants to go full “kawaii”’ then pastel shades are the way forward. From bright fuchsias to orangey corals, and flamingo pinks, a recurring trend in Tokyo is to combine pink shades to create a subtle yet stated look. We recommend trying Ombre styles or colour blocking pink shades, and for clients who want to go more, OTT adds delicate diamante.
