2. Nail Quick
Nail quick is one of the most well-known nail salons in Japan and a favorite among many due to its mission of providing quality service and hospitality along with it. Services include gel manicure featuring special nail art, clear gel, and color gel courses, cuticle care treatments, extensions, amino moist gloves, removal, and many others. Nail Quick uses three kinds of gels, Gelcolor by OPI, Calgel, and an in-house creation called Nailparfeit, which caters to those who are allergic to normal gels.
