Nail art has really been having a moment lately. Slapping a simple coat of color onto your nails has become a thing of the past. Now nail artists everywhere are upping the nail polish game by creating intensely intricate designs on their nails, filing their nails in creative shapes, and even creating tiny, nail-sized sculptures to show off their magnificent mastery of manicures. Be honest: everyone who has an interest in painting their nails has tried at least once to delve into the world of nail art, right?
There are few of us with the mettle to really survive in a world where your nails become tiny works of art that make typing, texting, and generally existing as a human nearly impossible. Our hands shake, we don’t have the right tools to make those super thin lines, and we can’t draw on paper so we certainly can’t draw on our nails—the list of ways most mortals can’t execute a successful journey into nail art can go on for days. Regardless of how hard it is to attempt and how impractical they are—even knowing full well of how long it’ll take your perfect nails to chip—nail art is nothing short of impressive.
So while the rest of us mortals struggle with drawing straight lines on our nails, let’s bask in the awesome glow of this gallery with some of the coolest, most elaborate, making-typing-utterly-impossible, geeky journeys into nail art.
