Sushi Nail Art is Trending in Japan — I Dare You Not to Bite Your Nails

I could eat sushi for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a midnight snack any day of the week. But sushi nail art? That's one level of sushi devotion I've never considered. However, according to The Wall Street Journal, sushi nail art is catching on in Japan in a big way. I'm hungry just thinking about it.

Intrepid Japanese nail artists are hitting social media to show off their mini masterpieces created in homage to the traditional cuisine. The images are definitely impressive, if not exactly stylish, with some even boasting clever 3D designs. My personal favorite seems to be the most common, depicting "tuna on the thumb, shrimp on the index finger, salmon roe on the middle finger, salmon on the ring finger and egg roll on the pinky." (Shout out once again to WSJ for pointing out this bizarre phenomenon).

The Japanese never shy away from the cutesy or the overtly strange when it comes to fashion, so sushi nail art is a fitting trend. That being said, I think I'll stick to my usual unpainted look and leave the juicy slabs of raw salmon to my taste buds, not my nail beds. Allow me to help you work up an appetite for lunch with the best of #sushinailart, courtesy of Twitter.

Hungry anyone?
