  1. New Augmented Reality Stick-On Nails Make For The Best Manicure Selfies

    Augmented reality is fun, albeit usually a bit contrived in execution at times. Like, okay, you have this design on a piece of paper that turns into a kitty when you look at it with your iPhone camera, but what are you supposed to do, carry the paper around with your everywhere? Of course, if you had the design on your fingernails, you could show off adorable 3D kitties every time you took a picture of yourself—and soon, you'll be able to do just that.

  2. Review: Espionage Cosmetics’ Neat, Nerdy Nail Wraps

    "Harlequin" design for not-getting-sued purposes.

    Espionage Cosmetics has an amazing line of nail art wraps called Nailed It! that have been seen on geeks of all shapes, sizes, and genders. These things come in all manner of geektastic designs: nebulas, circuit boards, cat faces, chainmail. Being the obsessive Batman fan that I am, I chose the "Harlequinn" set to test. So, join us as my friend, The General, and I attempt to pretty up my digits.

  8. We’re Super Jealous Of These Awesomely Geeky Nail Designs

    Hello Sweetie

    Tumblr user JeeA Lee has done some of the most amazing and intricate nail designs ever with the added bonus that they're all super geeky! While some look fairly easy to duplicate (like the Dalek ones), others are so detailed that it's hard to imagine how she could ever get them that way.  We bow down to her superior nail skills!

  15. Circuit Board Nail Art

    this exists

    Nail Pop offers no tutorial, no how to, and no explanation for these fabulous nails, so I am forced to conclude that they did it by black magic. Just kidding, the more likely explanation is that they're robots. I mean, look at those nails! Previously in Nail Art

  17. PBS’ Idea Channel Examines the Crafty (or Artsy) World of Nail Art [Video]

    Do Try This At Home

    Just kidding, this is actually my last post. For old times' sake. The Idea Channel, a web series from PBS, has taken an in-depth look at new developments in nail art, from the DIY styles to the downright three-dimensional. As someone who wears contacts and types all day, the most I can manage in the realm of "art" is "pretty colors," but what kind of spangly decorations are you attaching to your fingernails these days?

  18. Darth Vader Narrates a Tutorial on Stormtrooper Nail Art [Video]

    TK-421 Why Aren't You At Your Post?

    Hey, are you a fan of geeky nail art? We have good news for you, especially if you have a knack (meaning you are confidently ambidextrous) for painting tiny pictures on your fingernails -- Cute Polish has a tutorial up on its Youtube page on how to create a delightful (and "easy") Stormtrooper manicure! All you'll need is your favorite base coat, white nail polish, and a black detailing pen. And, perhaps, two bionic hands. But here is the fun part: it's narrated by Darth Vader. And let me tell you, you have not known joy/fear until you've heard Darth Vader say he's going to show you "how to paint your nails." (via Bit Rebels) Previously in Nail Art

  19. You’ll Love This Nail Art, Your Thumbs Probably Won’t

    Fans Do Cool Things

    As somebody who, among other duties, types for a living, I often find myself in the position of realizing that over the weekend my nails must have gotten a little too long because I'm making typos on every other word. I respect the work of nail artists. But mostly I'm mystified at their patience, steadiness, and willingness to hobble their fingers. Either that, or they posses a secret supernatural ability to manipulate objects while having long nails that was denied me at birth. Judging by some of the designs that KayleighOC creates out of nail extensions, she has such an ability.

  20. One Does Not Simply Get a Mani-Pedi In Mordor

    DeviantART user Undomiele doesn't think her "Enter Mordor" nail art is too complex, maybe because she's humble, or maybe because she's so talented that painting her fingernails with detailed Lord of the Rings art is what she does while waiting in line at the grocery store. Either way, we're here to tell Undomiele that she can brag a little harder about the impressive nail art.
