The tenure of the last nail design was short.  Scheduled the appointment a week earlier than usual so that I could get one more nail salon visit in during my time in Japan.  I officially bought a ticket home today, which is both exciting and utterly terrifying.  And it showed as I could not figure out what I wanted this time.  Eventually I decided on this, but after a long time of asking the nailist for advice and other random mutterings.
