Japan's Latest Craze Looks Delicious

The latest manicure trend in Japan takes the art of sushi to a new level

Sushi nail art is the latest craze in Japan.

Japan is continuing to teach us all about the art of sushi with its latest trend.

Japanese social media is wrapped up in tweets of manicures and nail art that feature a plethora of sushi decals

Though original photos of sushi nail art have been making rounds on Twitter for a couple of months, the current photos of these sushi decals are gaining so much popularity that some posts have been retweeted more than 10,000 in the past few days.

Among the most recent images is a picture posted by one user of her sushi nail art that features tuna on the thumb, shrimp on the index finger, salmon roe on the middle finger, salmon on the ring finger and egg roll on the pinky.

Other uses are also posting photos of similar, three-dimensional decals on their nails including squid, octopus and sea urchin artwork.
