Show Off Your Green Thumb with Succulent Nails — #Trending

We love succulents, and we love tiny things. So we’re not suprised that these veritable mini garden manicures are growing (heh) super popular on Instagram.

Australian botanical artist Roz Borg normally uses succulents to create stunning bouquets, terrariums, and jewelry, but recently started turning the tiny living plants into nail art.

“I had been making real succulent jewelry and wanted to use the same application on something I had never seen baby succulents used on before,” Borg told The Huffington Post.

Borg adheres the plants to a false nail using a floral adhesive. And while clearly this isn’t the most practical of manicures, the bonus is that when the glue wears off, she can plant the baby succulents.

And if you’re digging the look, Borg says a video on how to make your own succulent nails is in the works.
