Avarice Tokyo Nail Art with Basset Hound nails and Paper Doll nails

Before I even headed to Japan I made sure to I schedule my appointment with Avarice Tokyo Nail Salon (previous post here) through Hot Pepper.

The theme for my nails was Me & My Basset Hound  :bow:

I decided me to be interpreted as a Paper Doll. Apparently Paper Dolls are unheard of in Japan. The “butt” nail got lots of giggles and compliments  :lolpastel:


I wanted a vintage style me with a beret. I liked how they both turned out!


Holding the delicious Marie Antoinette limited edition Laduree macaron. So delicious (thanks Stella!).


My Basset Hound hand! I love the long idea it was actually inspired by my nailist Aya’s nails :sage:


Her corn hand!  :lolpastel:

This was her older set, when I went back a second time to Avarice she had done meat on this hand so she had corn and meat. Apparently they were her favorite foods  :smiley:


Me raving about Avarice has gotten my friends to go there. Bestie Alice “Alice and Wonderland” themed nails. The rabbit is so cute!

And this is Aya Yoshida my nailist! Her instagram Excuse my shoddy camerawork it was my first time actually using my new camera to take a picture of someone. Thankfully I learned quickly! I had planned on doing a series on Este professional snaps, but the ones I went for on my first visit I liked so much I went back to all 3 of them. Really stopped the whole este snap idea…  :sweatbubble:

She’s a big fan of Alisa Ueno producer of Fig & Viper and quirky Hollywood movies like Bettlejuice and Addams Family.

Lately she’s been moonlighting in the Ally’s nail salon that’s just for famous people to get their nails done at. Murua’s producer Momoko Ogihara is one of her clients! :korila:

      I felt bad for always having cat nails when I love my pups too. Maybe another dog theme sometime
