Nail Art Goes High Art

Is it just us, or is nail art — from geeky to stylish to just plain weird — everywhere these days? While we’re not usually motivated to go above and beyond our customary, single-color home manicures, we have great respect for those who take the time (or enlist a pro) to do something different. In fact, nail artists the world over — especially the folks at London’s WAH Nails and participants in NAILS magazine‘s Mini-Masterpiece contest — are recreating high-art masterpieces, using fingertips and acrylics alike as a tiny canvas. After the jump, we round up some of our favorite designs, from Picasso’s Desmoiselles d’Avignon to Munch’s The Scream.
