    3-D Nail Art
    Nail art isn't dead and gone, it's just entered a new dimension. Director Mizuki Kawano and producer Yuna Takayama collaborated to create a total of 521 artificial nails using a ProJet 660 Pro 3-D printer. They then brought them to life in their mesmerizing animation, "Transforming," which you can watch here.
