Are You Ready For Weed Manicures?
Go green and add weedicures to your beauty routine.
Are you 420-friendly? You can wear your love for weed on your nails with the latest cannabis beauty trend. The weedicure brings together nail art and actual weed.
According to Merry Jane, the trend began in 2014 when Louisiana Pham created the first weedicure for a client who wanted to rock unique nail art at Hempcon. The owner of the Orchid Nail Lounge uses nail-art pens and actual cannabis in her designs. The process includes grinding the cannabis and embedding flecks into gel or acrylic fingernails. The weed can also be applied after the base coat but before the polish and top coat. She doesn't sell the weed itself at her nail shop but customers can bring in buds they've purchased legally for medicinal purposes.
Other salons are now offering weedicures. The looks can be accented with glitter, jewels and colors. According to the site, the "canna-glammed nails" cost between $45 and $65.
