The K-wave hits us Singaporeans hard. I’m pretty sure you have imagined yourself as the Goblin’s Bride, waved a few glow sticks at a KPOP concert, or sported that no-makeup makeup look. Well, there’s another Korean fashion that you should try—in your own fingernails! Feel the Korean vibe with the help of the best Korean nail studios located in the heart of Singapore:
