Australian botanical artist Roz Borg first came up with the idea while making jewellery with tiny baby succulents. Using the same technique, she applied succulents to the nail with floral adhesive and loved the result. Photos of the unusual manicure quickly went viral, creating the global phenomenon now known as succulent nail art.

“People are stunned when they realize it’s real live plants, not 3D sculpting,” Borg told The Huffington Post. “Some people are grossed out, but most love it!”

And while this living manicure is certainly not low maintenance, those who dare to rock a real-life green thumb can plant their baby succulents once the adhesive wears off.

What do you think of succulent nail art? Would you try it?
