In 2011, at age 12, Nakayama became an exclusive model for the magazine Pichi Lemon. After seeing photos of Korean model Kaito on a fashion brand website, Nakayama was inspired by her androgynous appearance and began to wear more androgynous clothing, becoming one of the standout female models of Japan's genderless fashion trend.
In 2018, Nakayama made their first television acting appearance in the live-action television adaptation of Chūgakusei Nikki. They later made their film debut in Nunuko no Seisen: Harajuku Story, playing Akihisa Kubo, frontman for the fictional band ORION. In 2019, they played the role of Kaoru in the Y!mobile webseries Parallel School Days, which later gained a theatrical release. In 2020, they appeared in Kamen Rider Zero-One and its direct-to-Blu-ray spin-off series, Project Thouser, as Naki, a character confirmed by producer Takahito Omori to be genderless.
Nakayama is a brand ambassador for unisex clothing brand BLAKICHY and a partner of its sister brand KINGLYMASK. In 2019, they started their own fashion line, Xspada.
