Did we ever in a million years expect this trending? No...
Art Stuff 20 Jul 2017

Did we ever in a million years expect this trending? No…
The conceptual and South Africa born artist Annelies Hofmeyr is hoping to a bring a drop of joy to our monthly period pain to turn it more into a pleasure.
After viral mani-how to’s inspired by KAWS, Mark Zuckerberg or Kusama, her nail art features blood-colored “stains” splashed onto a white base, and is finished with sticking adorable little blue tampon strings on the tops.

The whole idea is very sweet: she is trying to make the tense time of the month more bearable with this special 3D manicure inspired by mother nature – it’s bloody brilliant.
Its certainly not the choice of everyone to let their environment know that flow is in town – but a cute one.

I really don’t understand why my tampon nails never became a trend ??‍♀️
