In recent years there’s been a re-awakening of creativity and renewed appreciation of Russia’s deep cultural traditions. Ancient cathedrals are being restored, colorful markets are brimming with activity, and literature and the arts are regaining the popularity they once enjoyed. What's more, the creativity behind the nail art coming out of Russia is unparalleled. Looking at these nails — all created by Russian nail professionals — it seems anything is possible with liquid, powder, and a little imagination. Peter the Great would be proud.
