Manicure Of The Future: 3D-Printed Fingernails

As 3D printers get more accessible, people are experimenting wildly to find out what is possible with these high-tech machines—from food to clothes, it seems we may soon be able to hit “print” and get whatever we want.

Based in New York City, digital artists Sarah C. Awad and Dhemerae Ford—known collectively as The Laser Girls—have created striking, brightly colored 3D-printed fingernails.

Designed to be “nail jewelry”, these synthetic nails have been printed from dyed nylon and feature three-dimensional geometric patterns on their surfaces.

The artistic duo is working on new designs and would be launching them on their online store soon.

Why would you want to get boring acrylic nails at your manicurist when you can have these cool 3D-printed ones?
