This Nail Art Literally Grows While You Wear It

No plants were harmed in the making of this nail art

If you’re looking from some truly innovative nail art, look no further than succulent nails. If you’re into nail art, you’re probably no stranger to adding decals and decorative flairs to your nails in the name of Instagram likes. Succulent nails takes that idea to the next level, because it involves gluing living things to your nails and letting them grow there.

The living things are plants, tiny baby plants. According to PopSugar, Australian artist Roz Borg deserves credit for developing the technique. Borg glues the plants onto fake nails and then glues those to her real nails.

And don’t worry: No plants are harmed in the making of this nail art.

“The Oasis glue eventually releases and I can plant the baby succulents and they can grow happily,” Borg told the Huffington Post. “It’s definitely a temporary green thumb.”
