3D printing enables us to come up with great solutions to our daily life problems, to provide for low-cost energy in the Third World or even to produce funny looking ice pops. Yesterday we showed you the work of Deskriptiv, a company that makes a living out of creating difficult 3D printed objects. Now, two young women called TheLaserGirls are doing something similar, but instead of using vague objects, they create extraordinary fingernails.
The fingernails are probably not the best idea for your regular working day, but they are surely something for the section of serious fashion and art. Two New York artists, Sarah C. Awad and Dhemerae Ford came up with the idea and they were last week’s ‘Shapeways 3D Designer’ in Residence at the Museum of Art and Design. The duo used a Form 1 3D printer and plastics and metals to create their original fingernails. This is a short video shot from the stairwell of the Museum of Arts and Design, in which the duo explains what it does:
Of you feel like having a crazy nails day, then check out their online shop at Shapeways. You can also check out their tumblr. And do you feel like you can’t get enough, then here are some more remarkable fingernails (don’t come to close to the screen though, we can’t promise you you they won’t prick):
