厉害啦word天,多肉植物都可以用来美甲啦!就是那个制作了多肉首饰的艺术家罗兹•伯格,地球已经不能阻止她对多肉植物的狂爱。她竟然将真的多肉植物粘到了指甲上,创造了一种新的美甲艺术。

You can now take your love for flowers and plants to the extreme with the latest botanical inspired beauty trend to take over Instagram - succulent nails.

近日,图片分享应用Instagram上兴起了以植物为灵感的美妆新潮流,多肉美甲可以把你对花花草草的热爱推向极致。

Everyone knows plants are perfect for brightening up your desk or coffee table, but why leave it there? It turns out they're pretty great at jazzing up your fingers too.

众所周知,植物是为书桌、茶几增添色彩的最佳选择,但为什么只是把它们摆在那儿?事实证明它们还能装点你的手指。

Thanks to Australian artist Roz Borg, plants have ditched the dirt and made its way into the beauty world.

多亏了澳大利亚艺术家罗兹•伯格,植物远离了脏脏的泥土,踏入美丽的世界。

"I had been making real succulent jewellery and wanted to use the same application on something I had never seen baby succulents used on before,” Borg told The Huffington Post.

伯格对《赫芬顿邮报》表示,“我曾做过多肉首饰,我想以同样的方式把多肉幼株用在以前从未用过的事物上。”

To create the look, the tiny plants are glued to an acrylic nail using Oasis floral adhesive and then attached to her real nail after it dries.

为了制作多肉指甲,要用绿洲牌植物胶水把细小的多肉植物黏在水晶甲片上,然后把晾干的甲片黏在指甲上。

Given the colour variation of succulents – blue-green, chartreuse, pink, yellow, white - the possibilities are endless and while they’re definitely a temporary beauty fix it's certainly not the end of the road.

因为多肉的颜色多种多样,有蓝绿色、黄绿色、粉色、黄色和白色等,所以有无限种可能的配色,不过多肉指甲只是暂时被固定住,最终肯定会掉下来。

Once they start to 'chip' they can be re-potted, she says "The Oasis glue eventually releases and I can plant the baby succulents and they can grow happily."

一旦多肉开始“脱落”,可以将它们重新种植,伯格说,“绿洲胶水最终会失去粘性,我可以将脱落的多肉幼株种起来,它们还能长得很好。”

It's definitely not the most practical of beauty trends but this real, living nail art gets a (green) thumbs up from us.

多肉指甲的确不是最实用的美妆风潮,但是这种逼真生动的甲艺值得我们竖起(绿色的)大拇指。(绿拇指有园艺才能的意思)
