When it comes to nail adornment, I’ve seen a lot of “unique” things. Remember nail piercings (which apparently Kylie Jenner is trying to bring back from the ’80s)? Or that nail ring I spotted on Kim Kardashian at NYFW? What about nail polish AS rings, like the ones butter LONDON created for Vena Cava.
More recently, Karl Lagerfeld took the knuckle ring craze up a level when he created nail bands for the Chanel F/W 2013/14 Haute Couture runway. I can barely keep knuckle rings from slipping off my fingers. How in the WORLD do you function wearing those?
Now, RAD Nails has upped the nail art ante with the introduction of Cuticle Tattoos. As if the nail bed wasn’t canvas enough, they are moving design to the skin and cuticle with their line of water decals. With four shapes to choose from, including black and red drips (not shown), the decals can be worn on the skin or nail itself. There’s a great example with the drips on NaitItMag.com.
I’ve used water decals in the past, mainly Cleveland Browns-themed ones for games (Go Browns!), but wearing them on my cuticle is probably a bit much for my taste.
What say you? Would you try these? Are we, as a nail community, really doing this??
RAD Nails Cuticle Tattoos retail for $6/ea for a set of 12 decals. Available at RADNails.com.
