Osaka is known for three things specifically; its dialect (Osaka-ben), its delicious food, and its art and creative innovations. This extends to the art that many glamour girls love to wear on their hands–nail art. Of course, it can be difficult to partake in some journeys alone because of language barriers or uncertainty in cultural differences or how you think you are viewed, but no fear. If you are in Osaka and you aspire to try the glamorous, highly dramatic nail art of Japan, here are 5 foreigner-friendly nail salons that you can visit after grabbing a bite of Takoyaki.
