Nail Artist Mei Kawajiri’s “Boob Manicure” Is Going Viral

It seems like every day there’s a crazy new manicure trend. You just need to look at fidget spinner nails, geode nails, and even unicorn Frappuccino nail art. But nail artist Mei Kawajiri, known on Instagram as Nails by Mei, has created something that not many people are doing right now — the boob manicure.

 

After being regrammed by popular Instagram account the Shade Room, Kawajiri’s manicure blew up, wracking up thousands of likes, as well as a few shocked faces. The manicure features what looks like breasts, nipples included, of varying skin tones and sizes. And if you look closely, some are even pierced with bars and rings. Responses are mixed, with some people calling them “tacky” and others wanting a tutorial STAT. I personally think they’re pretty cute. What’s so tacky about some nipples?

For Kawajiri, creating this manicure really wasn’t such a big deal. “Lots of my friends have nipple piercings,” she tells Allure. “So I thought it [would be] fun and cool to do on the nail.” 3D nail art, she explains, is her favorite to do. And you can see why. Girl has talent for days.

As for her technique, she used acrylic and gel polish to create the 3D breasts, and glued on little “studs” as she calls them, rings and bars with the middle painted to look “pierced” through.
