Some people have, shall we say, interesting ways of showing their love for Kylie Jenner and her newborn baby, Stormi. Recently, for instance, Russian nail artists commemorated the birth of Jenner's firstborn child by presenting the world with an incredibly detailed (and fairly unsettling) nail tribute. The final results are painstakingly realized, certainly, and it might give you nightmare fuel in the process. We warned you. Check it out, if you dare.
The manicure video, is certainly an original effort. There's no denying that. But it's hard to be impressed when you're recoiling. But in any case, it was an intensive, passionate and (seemingly) heartfelt effort, and it's unlike anything we've ever seen before. We should give credit where it's due. What inspired someone to make this nail design, and put it on the web, however, is anyone's guess. The creators of the nail art later spoke out about what transpired, noting,
We wanted to shock people with our skills. Did we overdo it?
Speaking to the BBC, the nail art creators don't seem particularly nonplussed about the reaction. In fact, the account in question has a history of, err, odd nail-based celebrations for pop culture events. They also recently put together one for the recent release of Fifty Shades Freed, for example, along with one for the Olympics. (Which included fire!) They also made another nail tribute to Kylie Jenner when it was announced that she was pregnant, although as you can see below, that one is at least a little more aesthetically pleasing. But we'll let you judge that.
For reference, these unusual celebrations are in relation to Kylie Jenner's recent pregnancy, as the 20-year-old reality TV star just gave birth to her first daughter Stormi on February 1st. The nail tribute-in-question was in reference to the photo Jenner released, announcing the birth. She kept the pregnancy a secret for months, although there were rumors spreading online anyway, as Jenner wanted to have the baby in the most "positive, stress-free and healthy way" that she could. Since then, however, Jenner hasn't kept a completely quiet profile. She hit Twitter to express her disappointments with the recent Snapchat updates, and that ended up costing the app company over a billion dollars, while also making its competitors, Facebook, a lot of dough over the weekend. Even in the early stages of motherhood, Kylie Jenner finds different ways to shake things up.
Kylie Jenner hasn't responded to this nail tribute, and we wouldn't blame her if she ignored the whole thing completely. But if she does find a way to announce her impressions on the bizarre piece of fan tribute artwork, you'll be sure to read about it here in due time. In the meantime, we apologize for any disturbances we might've caused in this post. Also, despite our fun, we hope not to discourage you from your own nail-based artery. You do you.
