Nail Sunny, whose Instagram bio proclaims it's the #1 nail art chain in Russia, creates beautiful and intricate nail art. A cursory look at its feeds reveals some serious designs, making it a heavily followed Insta fave. Well, the nail salon has crossed over into functional territory with its Starbucks coffee cup nail art manicure. The actual teeny tiny cup can be filled with iced coffee or whatever beverage your prefer and sipped through the attached straw.
The cup is affixed to a single nail and it's probably the most extra thing you will see on the internet today.
This mani might not sound or even be sanitary but it's certainly a conversation starter that also serves up your morning cup.
In the Insta video, which is sped up to show the detail and dexterity that went into the construction of this manicure, you see the nail technician carefully creating the cup and securing it to the nail.
The straw is added and the tiny cup is filled with some java. It is then sipped by the wearer because why waste it? One would think that the wearer of such art would quickly wash or anti bac their hands after enjoying a sip and a smell of the actual coffee.
The micro Starbucks cup nail art is incredibly artistic but it's also hardly practical.
The dexterous Nail Sunny tech constructs the cup.
The internal hole is an important part of the cup's architecture and infrastructure.
The familiar white, black, and green 'Bucks logo slowly, surely, and steadily takes shape and comes into focus.
The detail is astounding.
Are you totally blown away by how life-like this nail art is?
There's the finished product, complete with a clear —as opposed to the brand's signature green — straw. The cup really stands out against the stark white nails with which its paired.
Why do Starbucks nail design and leave the cup empty? Why stop there? This manicure goes the distance and finishes the job by filling the cup with some of the beloved bevvie.
It's cute, fully functional, and a micro shot of caffeine.
Ta da! It's not like having coffee at your fingertips. It is having coffee at your fingertips. It's not exactly wise to keep the cup filled with hot liquid that swishes around every time you move. Think of the spills on your clothes, your iPhone, and on your keyboard that are inevitable when using this manicure for a shot of coffee.
That said, the Starbucks coffee cup nail art is still super fun to look at. It would seem best to swallow the contents of the cup immediately, rinse it out thoroughly, and allow it to be the topic of conversation.
Speaking of conversations, there were plenty of those taking place in the comments field of the Insta post. It is indeed a single serve sip, but that's all it needs to be.
Some users were criticizing the manicure due to hygiene reasons but this user said it best. It's a nail design and it's fun.
Throw Nail Sunny an Insta follow because even their more standard manis are straight up stunners.
