3D Printed Nail Art for Funky Females

| Fashion, Shapeways | January 28, 2014

The 3D printed nails have been designed by The Laser Girls

Two digital artists from New York City,Sarah C. Awad and Dhemerae Ford, have created a new style of nail art using a 3D printer. They operate as The Laser Girls and they have elevated the hum-drum acrylic artificial nail into something a lot more special.

Their nails are designed on a computer and printed on a Form 1 3D printer and are available in a number of colors and in a variety of plastics and metals. Their creations have created a buzz since they have been on display this month at the Museum of Art and Design in New York.

The designers describe their designs with such terms as ‘weird-bumpy-spikey’ to ‘dominatrix-mechanical-raven claw’ and will complement only the most adventurous of outfits. They say the 3D printed nails are ‘ideal for special events, costumes, and any short-term occasion’. After being attached using a thin layer of glue they will stay on for around three days, if care is taken when wearing them.
