'Succulent Nails’ That Will (Literally) Grow On You.
When you think about something growing on your nails other than your nails, you immediately start to panic. But in this case it's a good thing because it's not some kind of gross warty growth. As you know, flowers and plants have an amazing way of brightening a home, a hospital, a backyard and shopping centers. So why not let them brighten up your hands too? That's what one Aussie artist did. So she started jazzing her nails, jewelry and even wedding accessories with these tiny plants called succulents and ended up turning them into a trendy sensation on Instagram.
Who said plants only grow on potted plants and the ground?
They look pretty cool on your fingers and nails too. They also quite honestly put Lee Press On Nails and conventional rings to shame.
Plants in Australian artist Roz Borg's garden have left the comfort of the Earth and jumped into the world of fashion accessories.
Well she actually uses tiny plants called baby succulents to make all types of jewelry.
They're perfect for just about any occasion and they just happen to photograph sensationally well.
They even make for an absolutely adorable wedding ring. Hopefully neither the ring or the marriage will wither.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating these natural works of art.
The succulents come in a variety of color from bluish-green to white, yellow, pin and even chartreuse. So the artistic possibilities are endless. As you can imagine, Instagram's obsessed with the neutral pastel palette.
Succulent art may very well be the most aesthetically pleasing thing you can put in your hands.
You couldn't ask for anything wilder like this to pop out and grab other people's attention but in a good way.
It doesn't always have to go on your hands either.
They make perfectly good looking wedding rings so why not a bridal garter like this one? The possibilities are endless when you're creative at heart.
Men shouldn't feel left out by this awesome new fashion trend.
With the wide variety of styles and colors of these succulents, Roz Borg is more than happy to find a style that can make you look cool and exotic and still remain a manly man.
Nail art seems to be the latest thing, but she doesn't apply it on her real nails.
She uses Oasis glue, which is a special type of adhesive that she applies to the succulents and then presses then against a pair of false nails. Then she applies the false nails to her real nails, thereby creating her infamous succulent nails.
Don't worry! Roz Borg is no plant killer.
The Oasis glue won't harm the succulents. It'll actually allow the plants to continue to grow while temporarily housed on top of the faux nails.
There is life after nails after all. It's not just an adorable trend that's visually striking.
Once the wearer notices the succulents beginning to peel off, they can simply plant them in the soil and allow them to continue to grow the way they were meant to. If only we could do these to all Instagram trends!
