Nail art is a huge industry in Japan. Anything kawaii is also super popular. Mix the two and you've got the custom kawaii nail art of Japanese nail artist Cabbage Manami. In this episode, Elleanor visits Cabbage at Nail Salon ao. in Shibuya and gets her nails done up in lots of cute designs.
Elleanor has been getting her gel nails done at Nail ao. for over a year.

Wow they last a whole month!? That is awesome! The nail art in my town (in Canada) is way overpriced and the stuff only stays for maybe a week or 2 then it starts to break off and chip and I know people who had whole nails fall off (fake nails) only a few days after they got them done! Even if you're careful with them they don't last nearly as long as a whole month!
Haha my mom has an accidental nickname too. When I was a kid she ran a daycare and one of the kids misheard her name. Her name is Loretta but he heard Lettuce and I still tease her about being nicknamed Lettuce.
I hope it wouldn't upset her if I asked her to comunicate with me through writing 😓 I'm alright at speaking Japanese but my writing is much better and I cant understand when other people speak to me in Japanese, but I really want Cabbage to do my nails
It's so sad she has to say "Cabbage doesn't speak English so don't be mean to her". She doesn't speak English because she doesn't live in America! Americans need to get over that people who don't live in america don't need to speak English if they don't want to! Knowing some people on the internet they would lecture her for not speaking English.
These are super cute.! I got my nails done a lot when I was in Korea, but it cost quite a bit. But the nails are worth every penny.! Does she do gel extensions.? And are they natural looking.?(I don't like chunky nails) :-3
