The Hand Sanitizer Nail Art Craze Is Proof Coronavirus Has Caused Y’all To Lose Your Minds
Updated on May 13, 2020.
The coronavirus is spreading and making the world collectively lose our minds. As if having to stock up on non-perishables, toilet paper, and paper towels, COVID-19 has also made us have to pump up on the Purell in the midst of hand sanitizer shortage scares.
Enter, a new nail trend the CDC has yet to list as a side-effect of the virus with flu-like symptoms so vague you might not know if you even have it right now.
Nail artist Mei Kawajiri used Coronavirus as her inspiration for her latest nail art.
In a post to her Instagram page, Kawajiri shared a picture of her hand sanitizer inspired- manicure with the caption “Hand sanitizer (aloe)nails 💦🖐✨ #Nailsbymei #stayclean.”
Kawajiri’s manicure features the classic “wet” look of nail art as well as symbols and labels inspired by a Purell bottle. She also used the coffin nail shape which we’re sure has some pretty morbid meaning.
Our takeaway? Apparently anyone can take away inspiration from a crisis.
Think this one’s crazy? We’ve got a whole heck of a lot more.
Having nails that are on fleek, can be so essential to amping up your look for the beach or even what you wear to date night. Still, some nails can be so extra. And yet we’re def obsessing over these COVID-inspired nails.
Especially these that went all ~3D~ on us.
And these that stand as a thank you and salute to first responders.
They said that it couldn’t be done… but this is kind of chic.
Love this one that is rallying for our health and safety.
