Tiny Worlds Come Alive Atop Green Flock Fingernails


Recently, Alice Bartlett covered her fingernails with textured green flock and, from that moment, an idea was born. Inspired by the color and texture, she decided that her nails would be a great backdrop for miniature scenes of people doing daily activities.

This inventive and delicate nail art is the product of a day filled with playful figures, colorful nails, and an exceptionally creative mind.
