This architectural destination serves up sculptural nail techniques.
Situated between Shibuya and Minato, Omotesando is a center of refined luxury. Just south of Harajuku’s famous, teenager-filled Takeshita Dori, Omotesando’s upscale boutiques and leading fashion shops stand along the neighborhood’s namesake street, appealing mostly to an older, wealthier client. Often referred to as Tokyo’s Champs-Élysées, this tree-lined street is packed with stores for the luxury shopper. Outside of the fashion realm, this area has also developed a venerable reputation for its modern architectural achievements. Highly revered architects have masterminded buildings erected on Omotesando’s streets. It’s a neighborhood that thrives on carefully planned, refined creativity. Ergo, the nail look we captured there is one of layered gel, the newest nail technology gone sculptural. LENA PARK
