So very cute, and really almost steampunk. Just missing some watch parts.
But let’s not stop there! Here are some ideas for hipster manicures we think are really, really, seriously uber cute!
OMG, I WANT the barn wood mani-pedi. Especially the pedi, since my feet are just about that gnarly.
Maybe you can convince Sally Hansen to make nail strips like that.
(Unsolicited product plug: Sally Hansen nail strips are the FUCKING AWESOMEST.)
they are pretty awesome…
I know you can commission nail strips from somewhere. This can happen. (I can’t find my links but I swear this can be done.)
Found it! You can upload your own photo and make your own design in nails.
Someone please get a barn wood mani and photograph it.
i want the Zooey ones!
Ooh this has to happen! The possibilities are endless! Couldn’t you just see custom nail strips for lactivists, intactivists and those people who shriek if you dare shave?
OOOh lactating boobie nails? I’d buy a set!
Hairy pube nails?
I am now picturing people shrieking like this whenever someone shaves:
I can’t get those damn things to come OFF my nails afterward though. Took forever to get them off and all my nails broke.
Those cracks aren’t in the barn wood, I’m afraid. She really needs to get that checked.
That picture gave me the jibblies! Can’t stop thinking of the Lamasil goblin…
He’s one of the few reasons I’m glad I don’t have a TV at the moment. I’d dive for the remote when those commercials came on. *Shudder* The print ads in magazines are bad enough.
Or the tree-hands guy.

Or the dude with the tree trunk disease…
So, uh… Where can I get those gluten-free nail decals?
Oh come on, those things are corny.
As long as they’re not wheaty. That’s all I’m worried about.
There isn’t a grain of truth to that statement.
Seriously, if they existed, my husband would buy them to make fun of me with them.
If they existed, I would buy them to make fun of myself with.
The whole GF fad has really been a mixed blessing for the Celiac. On the one hand, there’s more stuff in the stores and restaurants don’t give you as many funny looks when you ask. On the other hand, everyone else thinks you’re just being pretentious.
I sympathize. I am seriously, explosively, and “pretentiously” lactose intolerant. I get weird looks when I buy lactase enzyme tablets, or milk that’s had the lactose removed.
People who don’t have to live within limits will never understand those who do. Why they even care what anyone else eats or drinks, I dunno.
I haven’t gotten too many weird looks,but I was really surprised when the guy at Starbucks (I refuse to call them ‘baristas’) asked whether I was allergic or something or if I just didn’t like milk, so he’d know whether to use the special “dairy free” mixer for my Frappuccino.
I haven’t been to a Starbucks in ages. Not only did the last local franchise I went to not have non-dairy “milk,” but they also offered absolutely NO sugar-free drinks. If that’s changed, I’ll try them again, because I really did like my Cafe Mocha back in the day…
Oh my gods….
I’m not lactose intolerant, or have gluten allergies, but I have severe gastro issues, including IBS, which makes it impossible for me to eat MANY things (peppers of any type, raw onion, tomatoes, etc), and people think I’m picky. I LOOOOOOOOVE peppers, it’s not like I went “hey, I think I’ll make the person serving my food want to spit in it”.
Come on… It is cute!
If I wanted a mustache I’d stop plucking my upper lip.
trust me. doing that doesn’t result in cute.
err. not that I would know.
Start ‘em young!
wow this made me want to punch someone in the face. for a child’s birthday? come on people
Well don’t waste your time punching the kid.
That ‘stache will absorb the impact.
i am making horking sounds at that party right now. hork hork
we have “mustache day” at my preschool where we draw funny mustaches on all the kids with face paint. We mostly do it because it’s freaking hilarious!!
That reminds me… I need to plan a mustache day.
Agreed. Tiny children in mustaches are funny. My problem with that party set-up was the idea that you can get a milk mustache by drinking through a straw.
Read the comments – they are exactly the same as the comments above! (super cute! totally adorable!)
I would truly love to see some LOLcats nails. THAT I would concede to being cute. Or pictures of my kids, but if you have pictures of my kids on your nails I’m calling the cops.
Does Nyan Cat count?
I paint my nails with all the skill and talent of a chimpanzee with the shakes, so props to whoever pulled that off!
Cutepolish did that one I believe. I’m a huge fan of hers and several other nail artists.

Waiting for chalkboard nails you can write on!
So then, when you describe a very irritating sound, it would be like chalkboard on nails?
Chalkboard on nails on chalkboard – one of the most horrible sounds in the universe.
A chalkboard nail inception
At first glance, I thought the crafter’s name was “Sanitarium’s Snatches.” Then on second glance, I was disappointed.
I read swastikas for a second. Had to give my head a shake.
I read that as “Santorum Swallows” at first. LOL
Blecch! Look up “santorum” on urban dictionary.
Santorum may swallow, but I’m just guessing he doesn’t swallow a “santorum,” but who am I to judge?
I actually like the blue background on the ukuleles a great deal.
Mustaches are just. so. cute.
I always wished this guy’s regular mustache matched his forehead mustache.
It’s like it was on his lip, but felt it was too good for that and wanted to move to a position of authority.
Or maybe I’m drunk.
As you wish!
this right here has made my whole shitty day worth it.
Bonus points for doing the eyebrows too!
That they are!
I love Zooey. I wont deny it.
Nor will I. She lays it on thick, but I find her entertaining and will take her over “celebrities” like the Kardashiskanks any day.
“Kardashiskanks” is perfect! I shall use it frequently. Not as frequently as they use their kooches, but often.
God, if I had her on my nails I’d never look away! She’s just so pretty!
When I find a top hat stamp, I’m so doing a steampunk octopus manicure dedicated to all the FJL’s out there. Also, I’m tempted to by some water decal paper and make some of these manicures happen.
You can also use temporary tattoo printer paper. Just seal it up good!
The moustache and monocle nail art really IS cute! But it’s overkill to have it on all five nails. To be on one nail is cute and silly… do the rest in black or something. But all five just looks strange. And with the ring, or whatever the heck the big moustache is, it ventures into stupid.
Agreed. It’s a cute concept, but overdone.
If I was swishier, I’d contemplate doing something like that myself…but having chosen the Gentlemanly style of grooming, my manicures are limited to cleaning, trimming, buffing, and cuticule-pushing. Polish would be a bit over-the-top…
zOMG, cute party!!!
Now that’s some hand embellishment I can get behind.
now we are cookin with gas. or whatever it is they say.
Lovely. Just lovely.
MAKE IT SO.
Also waiting for mini, tiny, teeny terrarium nails.
Well… artificial nails already are sort of like terrariums already. Over time as the glue under them loosens, a gap begins to form, and water collects inside. Then stuff starts growing. Which is why pharmacy technicians and food handlers are not allowed to have artificial nails in this state.
There is also such a thing as bubble nails. They look hideous.
Googled because I was curious. Seriously regretting it now. WWWWHHHHHYYYYYYY is this a thing?
Damn double post.
OOoooohhhh, ska-weeeeeeeee!!! OOAK! Unique! Whimsicle!!
Man, livin’ up to my username for some reason and I can’t even blame it on hormones.
I liked nail art before it was cool.
The twee doesn’t irk me nearly as much as the grocer’s apostrophe in ‘Mustache’s & Monocles’ irks me.
So the ‘& Monocles’ belong to the mustaches? And WHY fuck up the plural-not-possessive in one word but not the second? WHY?? If you’re going to make me throat-punchy, at least try to be consistent.
If you have some sort of grammar rule, and you’re wrong about it, that’s one thing. Just tossing about apostrophes because you realize that there is a rule but you don’t care what it is? Dude, someone worked hard to put together our language. Don’t be rude and stomp all over it.
What about some for Vegans? I can’t believe you meat-a-holics have jumped on yet another chance to exclude the Vegans. WE WILL BE HEARD!
I can’t believe there isn’t a bacon version.
Meat! Great, now all I can think about are nail art stickers that look like what is underneath your nail. Like those muscle tights.
Except it would be a lot grosser? And freak me out, at least. I have a nail-ripping-off phobia, but am still morbidly curious what it would look like.
i have that phobia too. even people opening sodas bothers me.
Just had my big toenail removed; would be happy to send you a picture. It’s not as gross as you would think, just pink, and with no nail.
I had a couple of toenails come off by themselves after I got blisters under them.
The blisters hurt, but the toenails just floated off peacefully in the bath. The area underneath was, as Afghanlady says, quite pink — but not painful. The toenails grew back.
I also have one weird toenail that comes off spontaneously from time to time, also in the bath. It just lets go and lifts away, and there’s already a new nail underneath.
I’ve had that surgery 12 times: 7 on one big toe, 5 on the other. I can’t remember which toe had how many, though. It’s been about 35 years.
Hopefully new techniques are more successful. Good luck with yours.
Nails of rusty vintage nails!
Are you kidding? I TOTALLY WANT A CYCLOPS MANICURE OF MY VERY OWN. Really, people, look at it… where is the dude’s other eye? HE DOESN’T HAVE ONE. Mustachioed cyclops X 10 = Totally fucking terrifying/whimsicle. SMALL CHILDREN WILL QUAKE IN TERROR BEFORE ME.
This is what I thought when I saw it. OMG AN ABLEIST MANICURE!
On a side note I really like the barnwood manicure, it puts me in mind of HR Giger.
You’re a bunch of misogynistic, man-mollifying jerks for making fun of someone for not shaving the hair off of their nails.
Thought of razor clam shells when I saw the barnwood nails pic, but I guess in Whimsicle these must be false nails for barnwood deprived mermaids? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ensiskils.jpg
I used to shop at a store where one of the clerks had nails that looked just like that. Used to…
My life, and by extension everyone else’s, is now complete.
Also, just think how much more publicity she’ll get by adding the “steampunk” tag onto her posts!
Also, honey, at least invest in a fake-nail “fill” before you take photos of your nailstaches. No one wants to look at your ugly cuticle outgrowth.
I am a little sad that I know this, but it’s not outgrowth, it’s referred to as a gap manicure. Some people intentionally leave ~1mm gap between the cuticle and the polish because it looks more professional and can keep the polish from chipping as easily.
/spends too much time on beauty forums
Also how much more she could charge because of each gear being so unique.
You are obviously being controlled by a society that’s telling you people’s god-given natural cuticles are ugly. Shake off your chains. Let your cuticles grow free.
She’s actually a really close friend of mine, and thats not a fake nail gap you see. Some people know how to apply polish without getting it all over themselves. It’s crazy, I know… Couple that with that fact that these were the only ones that were actually hand painted and not ‘shopped or using decals, I think they are pretty awesome.
I wasn’t aware gluten-free was an etsy “thing.” I have seen a lot of “vegan” this and that, though. Like vegan candles. I get pictures in my head of people eating candles.
i see a lot of vegan shoes and i think the same thing
Wait, so you’re telling me I’m NOT supposed to eat my candles? Well what am I supposed to be doing with them?
Do you REALLY want suggestions on where to put, er, what to do with candles?
Feed them to your dog. Dogs love candle wax, it’s like crayons except not as colorful in the backyard.
For a more practical alternative try “BIRTH CONTROL PILL NAIL ART™” “Each nail is embellished with a full daily dose of pregnancy-preventing estrogen and progesterone. Simply bite one nail each day for ten days. Re-apply nail art after all nails have been bitten.” (DISCLAIMER: Not covered by Catholic health insurance policies.)
I like the ukulele ones. But I play the uke and the fiddle and I would rip those things off in about 1 minute. But yeah, they are, um, like totally super cute!
This is giving me so many ideas for a Regretsy-themed mani for the NYC meetup. Usually I just pack on enough glitter to blind a unicorn, but this calls for something classier.
Maybe I’m just being my bitchy self, but I just want to punch the person who would have their nails done like this.
I like the ukelele but it needs to be just one, facing the other direction and only on the middle finger, cause then you could flip someone off and they’ll be all
“WHY YOU LITTLE… wait…wtf? are you… did you just flip me the ukelele?”
tension diffuser, or at least confuses them enough so you can make a clean getaway.
My fingernails naturally resemble mass produced Owl pendants. I really ought to buff sometime.
I feel horrible because I am on some serious sleepy meds and I thought you said owl pellets.
To be truthful, they DO look like Owl pellets.
This is not the first time I have seen mustache-adorned fingernails and frankly, the whole idea makes me really stabby!
Shabby as an emotion! BRILLIANT!
Stabby dang it!!!!!
Women and their mustache-envy….
Aaand those looked like shorts to me.
Extremely wrinkly shorts.
Fuck you, keyboard making fun of my weak little fingers.
Man…the only people sporting Lisa Frank are 12 yo old little girls, so I sure as hell don’t want to see any 12 yos trying to rock these acrylic hooker claws yikes!
What goes on the other finger and two thumbs nails?
It’s for 7-fingered mutants?
WHERE CAN I GET THESE
How about bull’s horn nail art?
My onychomycosis fingers come with that look naturally.
Zombie fashion is the next Big Thang.
This is utterly stupid and pedestrian.
There needs to be a bacon manicure. Bacon hipsterism is up there with moustache hipsterism at the moment. There are sites selling novelty crap that have entire sections dedicated to bacon-flavoured toouthpaste, bacon gum, bacon soap, bacon cologne, bacon cushions and other such crap.
The most creative I ever got with my nails was painting little shamrocks on them for a St. Patrick’s Day parade. I chip off nail polish in about a day so I usually don’t bother even with just painting them.
I totally want the ukulele nails, because I love my uke. But I’d probably just chip it off while playing.
i love the nails, the ring is overkill, and where is his other eye?
nail art can be way fun. it’s a shame mine peel, shred, and shatter at the slightest touch.
Artist is a nitwit who read someplace that a monocle with no eyes is cute, but when she draws a monocle, she has already forgotten, and draws the eye anyway. Herp derp. Meanwhile, I am holding out for the EAT KALE nails.
pretty arvin awesome, the Zooey Deschanel 1 is best, of course…
with the zooey ones, my “special alone times” would be so much better.
and also super cute.
LOL I didn’t actually wear this out it was for a nail art contest and I only wore that ring for the pictures, the only ring I usually wear is my wedding ring and band.
Loving the other versions of it LOL if somebody does a bacon one I need permission to share on my blog. Love the steampunk one.
And I don’t have fake nails I leave a gap because if I get to close to my cuticles I paint over them on accident.
I actually would love the Zooey Deschanails
OMG, I love this mani so hard! It’s hilarious! Kudos!
