L.A. Start-up Turns Instagram Photos into Nail Art

This photo, featuring the pre-made NailSnap design "Birds on a Wire" is from the company's kickstarter website.

One of the latest stylish start-ups is a company called NailSnaps, which turns your beloved Instagram photos into wearable nail art.

The free NailSnaps mobile app (which hasn't launched to the public yet) will let users design how their photos will appear on custom nail wraps. An image can span across all 10 nails, or users can choose different parts of an image for each finger. Once the design is finalized, NailSnaps prints and ships hi-res polish stickers from its L.A.-based manufacturing facility to the customer. Pre-made designs including "Birds on a Wire" (shown above), several bridal designs, and many more are available as well.

NailSnaps can be applied easily to the nail with no dry time, heat, or wait. Just apply and file off excess wrap. They last about a week.

According to its kickstarter website, NailSnaps is currently seeking backing and needs to raise at least $47,381 to finalize the free mobile app and get its printing facility up and running.
