Nails become center of attention, often in bizarre ways

Implications - Nail design has been getting much attention lately, as evidenced by the growing availability of nail support innovations and the plethora of designs—from game-themed to spiked—covering the fingers of nail fashionistas everywhere. However, exciting nails are no longer about cool patterns and rhinestones. Nail art is going above and beyond, even beyond the fingers with nail jewelery designs -- accessories that actually use nails as their focal points. These bold creations are exactly what the attention-seeking nail-lover craves.
