This Original Nail Artist And Salon Owner Uses Dead Bugs In Her Designs

nail

If you’re not fond of bugs, you might want to look away. Or, just muster up some courage and take a look at these awesome nails!

For some reason, the art of dead-bug-nail-polish is a trend now, and it’s not for those with weak stomachs. But if you’re into goth and crazy avant-garde styles, this might be exactly what you’re looking for.

This sick nail polish shop is located in Melbourne, Australia, and is aptly called Dead Nails. It is where innovative nail artist Nicole Casati uses real bugs for manicures. Painstakingly, she’s able to encase all kinds of natural materials and tiny insects inside the fingernail’s gel polish. In a sense, her Deadly Nails manicures pay homage to the beauty found in nature – and natural beauty isn’t always cozy and comfortable.

On the contrary, it’s sometimes feisty, badass, and downright terrifying. So, if you’re not into this, look away. But if you are, you’ll surely enjoy these awesome nail polish designs featuring all sorts of critters and natural elements (courtesy of Ranker).

Nicole Casati is the master artist behind the trend:

Nicole was initially inspired by a dead butterfly:

It all began when she encased the beautiful wing of a dead butterfly.
