I've spent several years in Singapore working with Japanese expatriate nail students at my training centre, and it is indeed very special for me to be able to train the nailtechs in their own land during the recent Tokyo and Osaka tour. It is also important to note that the nail styles of Japan greatly influenced the nails in South East Asia to date, but Japan is also opening up to learn different styles of nails and nail art that we are bringing to their shores. I'm very excited with this development and Odyssey Nail Systems have made all this possible with their global presence.

It's great to be back in Japan again for the Nail Expo after missing it for a few years. At the same time there was also a nostalgic moment as Japan nail industry paid tribute to the late Tom Holcomb, the icon of nails who was a big part of the Japanese nail industry. His memories will be forever etched in our minds.
