This year's Nail Queens (and king) from left: Ai Haruna, Tsubasa Masuwaka, Pink Lady's Mii and Kei, Kana Nishino, Yusuke Yamamoto and LiLiCo.
Model Tsubasa Masuwaka apologized for divorce rumors and emphasized that she is still happy during an appearance at the Nail Queen Awards this week.
The awards are an annual event at the Japan Nail Expo which attracted more than 50,000 people to Makuhari Messe on Sunday and Monday.
Reporters were more interested in the state of Masuwaka’s marriage to actor Naoki Umeda, 28, than in the state of her nails. Masuwaka admitted that she and Umeda were living separately but said there were no plans for a divorce. She said that he even helped prepare her nails.
Joining Masuwaka on the award podium this year were singing duo Pink Lady, “talent” Ai Haruna, actor Yusuke Yamamoto (as the Nail King), singer Kana Nishino and TV personality LiLiCo.souce
