There’s a new, hazy nail art trend on the block, and it might be even crazier than all the rainbow fads we’ve been seeing. Say hello to weed nails. This unique weedicure isn’t just leaf designs and innuendo – nope, with this edgy method, they insert actual pot into gel manicures, letting everyone know your stance on legalization.
When the standard acrylic nail art just isn’t enough, some clients turn to mother nature, letting its own natural beauty adorn their fingertips.
This trend has been flourishing over the past couple of years as a way to celebrate the legalization of medicinal and recreational pot, bringing it out of a taboo sphere and into a more conversational mainstream one.
A time to celebrate the age of the pothead rather than criticizing based on stereotypes that simply aren’t true, colliding with the high-fem world of nail salons. We love it.
The process of getting one of these manicures is less scary than you think – although you do need a medical marijuana card, there’s no extra charge to the manicure compared to the other nail art they offer.
