.............I do hope not!

Whilst trawling the 'net, came across this link.....

http://peterjoyes.com/fingernail.html

I haven't come across this kind of nail art before and hope that it won't be the latest 'must have' for kids. Surely it can't be good for young natural nails. :evil:

This is by no means new, I can remember when i was about 14 having my friend do a tatoo on my nail, It lasts until the nail grows up.
I should think it could only be done on a natural nail ?

State of the actual nails aside ... I think the tattoos look tacky and ameteurish (sp).
I'd be a bit peeved if someone put those on my nails for a day ... but to have to wear them for months ... gross!

Eww No no no .... I think that if I were tempted by anything like that I'd just go for a transfer. At least you can take it off!

Hi, Many many many years ago I had one done on my thumb nail, well in fact it was around 13 years ago and it was done in a tattoo shop so they were no nail experts but performed tattoos on all nails, don't think they do it any more but its a very old craze well here in Dorset anyway.

It is horrid when they grow out and then every one starts asking what is wrong with your nail very embarrasing. Hey ho

How discusting, the nails look awful. I personally agree with everyone else that says at least with proper nail art you can remove it when you want to, change it as often as you need to and at least have the decency to look after the natural nail to begin with!!!!!

Thats my two pence worth.:(

Sorry, but WHY is this disgusting? :rolleyes: Is what he's doing any worse/weird than sticking plastic tips onto natural nails, filing and then overlaying with acrylic? As long as he sterilises his equipment and doesn't do any harm -looks like he's busy which means he's making people happy!

Live and let live, s'wot i say! :green:
