Pretty soon, there will be and instagram, twitter and pinterest set up, but all in due time!
I've been taking part in the #januaryphotochallenge on my personal Instagram and today's photo tag was #nails. Now, with my limited knowledge and skill set for intricate nail art, I didn't feel the IG world would appreciate my less than polished manicure. So, with this in mind I set out to find a really cool set of nails that were unique and something that nail-art enthusiasts might appreciate, that's when I came upon this...
and of course, Hello Kitty...
Now, having no idea this trend even existed, I have to admit I was relatively intrigued at first, and found out that this trend started in Japan and has actually become quite popular among young, bored, american girls and middle-aged women with too much money and teenage daughters
Sets can get pretty pricey and according to the website TanaNail, you can get a lovely "Queen of Nail" set for around $48.00. Seriously though, look at these things, how do you DO anything with these? Typing, texting (certainly), going to the restroom? It would probably be a chore just to flip someone off!
Overall, I'm still pretty confused by the whole trend, and definitely WONT be purchasing the 3D nail art anytime in the near future. However, i'd actually love to meet someone with a full set and see what the fuss is all about.
What do you think? Do you like this fad? Would you wear these on a regular basis, special occasions?
Let me know in the comments below!
