So I’m not really one for the whole nail art thing but this is AH-MAZING! Seriously, I’m all giddy over the idea. The folks at TalkingShopping.com went to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas and discovered this gem from Mattel and Barbie.
What is it that I’m so excited about? Barbie b-nails, an inkjet printer that applies fun, girly nail art like the Barbie logo. Using a special non-toxic ink, designs are printed on the nail and protected with a special top coat.
Being that b-nails is a Barbie product, it will undoubtedly be marketed to little girls but as a long time Barbie fanatic, that won’t stop me from wanting one of my own.
To see how it works, check out video from the TalkingShopping.com team after the jump.
|Now this isn’t the first time I’ve heard of this type of technology, it’s just the first time it’s being made available to the everyday consumer. The Imaginail NailJet Pro is a similar product marketed to nail and beauty industry professionals. While Mattel hasn’t released a retail price for b-nails but I imagine it will be less than the Imaginail, which retails for thousands.|
So what do we think? Fun for all or just kids?
