FINGERNAILS

Anybody remember the commercials for Lee Press On Nails, the instant fingernail extenders? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3amCM8_JeMY

Some Oaxacan alebrijes artists have taken this example and created fine, wooden fingernails in myriad designs. They are quite lovely and a good example of creativity with the art form moving beyond figurines. (I don’t know about you; I cringed at the idea of these pushed up against a cuticle.)
