Fashion trends come and go quickly these days, and this latest trend of turning your nails into miniature hands or feet has been stirring up quite a scene.
To be fair, it is pretty creepy looking. But definitely creative and a unique way of making the most out of your nails.
The video posted on social media by @nail_sunny on Instagram has caught a lot of attention and the feedback has been a mix of adoration and disgust. They are well known for doing over-the-top and unconventional manicures, but this one might be the craziest yet.
In the tutorial video below you can find out how the Russian nail artist crafts her fingernails in this unique way, and it’s entirely possible to do the same yourself with a bit of practice.
The process involves adhering fake nails to begin with, and then molding them into the shape of feet. From there it’s all about precision, painting each tiny nail as if it was a real one. To top it off she then gives each ‘foot’ a pedicure.
A valid question that many users commented is “Why?!” – it seemed to be a bit too freaky for some. But we reckon it’s awesome and goes to show how even when you think you’ve seen it all, there’s always another unique beauty trend right around the corner.
One user in the comments was particularly cynical about it, saying:
“This isn’t a beauty trend — this is to see how social media influences & how people are foolish enough to believe it and go out & do it themselves.”
