3D Printing Technology at Your Fingertips


3D printed nail art is taking manicures to a completely new level.

The Laser Girls is a collaboration of two New York City designers; Sophie Kahn and Lucas Goossens. Combining fashion with technology, The Laser Girls create 3D printed nails, similar to press-on acrylic nails, but with an unmistakable 3D touch.

With technology turning towards printable, wearable art, it’s only natural that this trend would take shape.

These nails aren’t just artistic, they’re entirely 3-dimensional, with designs ranging from Lego-inspired looks to snakeskin, to futuristic and ornately designed talons. The 3D nails are acrylic printed in many designs, colors, and shapes, and are certainly a sight worth seeing.

The Laser Girls have set up shop with Shapeways, where customers can choose from a variety of wild designs.

The designs are fun, whimsical, and maybe a little over the top, but there’s no denying the fact that they add an entirely new dimension to manicures. And, the best part is, they’re affordable which means that nail art enthusiasts can treat themselves to a spa day, any day.

Of course, it’s not recommended that you wear these nails if you are a nail biter, as chewing 3D printed nails probably isn’t the best thing for your health!
