Nail art has emerged as the great, cheap, vaguely fashioney trend of The Great Recession. Every beauty site has tutorials on how to turn your nails into little hearts and print newspaper stories on your fingers and mismatch your polish and encrust your nails with glitter, because it's accessible for all slummin' recent grads to mess around with.
I, for one, am kind of sick of it. Who wants a Christmas ornament on their fingers?
There is one exception I found, that's just too cool to not talk about. I found the Ciaté Caviar Manicure™ on Sephora.com, and kind of lost my mind a little. It's a bottle of clean-looking polish, a container of ittttty bitty caviar pearls and a funnel. You simply funnel the tiny fish eggs onto your wet manicure for Japanimation-chic set of nails.
