Nail art aficionados are used to smoking the competition with outrageous 3D accessories like fur and seashells, but this new trend is straight up dope. Yep. Marijuana manicures, or “weedicures” are now a thing.
The application entails placing tiny pieces of bud, along with any other flashy accouterments, on the nails and then sealing it all in a top coat – a process known as “encapsulating.” The process renders the reefer smokeless (!!!), so only true ballers need apply. But it looks pretty all the same.
The “weed nail” trend isn’t exactly new, but with more states legalizing marijuana in the past few years, it’s been cropping up at pot conventions and in the general public across the U.S.
Pham, a California-based nail artist told Buzzfeed that she doesn’t keep weed in her salon – she adheres to a strict Bring-Your-Own-Bud policy. A medical marijuana card is also required, so it’s probably a good idea to review your state's ganja policies before you get all sticky-icky-fingered.
