From a 3D Tinkerbell to embellished sparkly flowers: the most spectacular nail art from Tokyo’s nail expo

Where in the world can you watch a French Tip Sculpture Contest, a Nail Queen Award Ceremony and a Manicurist Championship, all in one weekend?

It can only be the annual Tokyo Nail Expo, one of the beauty industry's biggest and most spectacular events. The expo regularly introduces us to nail trends we never even knew existed (hint: Tinkerbell themed 3D nails) as well as giving us a peek at the lives of some of the world's best manicure artists.

It also provides us with plenty of wacky nail art inspiration, which is perfect for the festive period when copious amounts of glitter and sparkle are accepted encouraged.

See all our favourite looks below and discover your ultimate #nailgoals
