Weed nails are the latest nail art trend to take Instagram by storm, and it's the perfect look for all the glam stoners out there. Typically, bits of cannabis are embedded in clear gel polish, creating a look that's totally one-of-a-kind.
Louisiana Pham is the owner Orchid Nail Lounge in Santa Clara, California, and the originator of the weed manicure, Buzzfeed reports. She's been hooking her costumers up with the conversation-starting nail art for years now. She came up with the idea after one of her clients asked her to come up with something special for the marijuana festival, Hemp Con. Pham put on her thinking cap that day, and instead of going the traditional route - drawing weed leaves with a nail art pen - and decided to exercise a little creativity.
Pham crushed up bits of her client's medicinal marijuana and combined it with a gel polish to get that "suspended in air" look, and replicates the look of cannabis oil by dripping gold glitter onto the nails that are painted in solid colors. The end result is a totally unique manicure.
What a time to be alive.
