Nail-Bitingly Brilliant Fingernail Art

Like so many nervous nellies, 24-year-old Media student Kayleigh O’Connor would routinely chew her fingernails almost to the bone. “I bit [them] so badly that they looked like something out of a horror film,” she says on her DeviantArt page. To compensate, the Birmingham-born nail-biter glues on false nails, but not the kind you can buy at your local pharmacy for $4.50 – they’re ones which Miss O’Connor skillfully sculpts and paints to create ingenious designs. These fingernails, you wouldn’t wanna gnaw at them.

Her designs, which are painstakingly detailed, are inspired by several different sources, from movies to television, music to arcade games, and nature to food. For some time, she would proudly display them in front of only friends and family, but now she photographs them and posts them on her blog for our viewing pleasure. Check out some of O’Connor’s weird and wonderful designs below, where, if you’re cultured enough, you may recognise a few familiar faces. [Read more…]

Kristin and Kayla: Adorable Sisters in Amazing Photos

Here’s something guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Jason Lee, a California-based American wedding photographer of eight years, has become something of an internet sensation thanks to funny and imaginative pictures taken by Lee of his two adorable young girls, Kristin (8) and Kayla (5). The photos, uploaded onto Lee’s wildly popular Flickr account, see the lively little siblings snapped as they partake in weird and wacky situations, which vary from daily chores to werewolf-hunting, ceiling fan-riding to playing Super Mario Bros. – in full-scale.

The photos of Kristin and Kayla began when Lee’s mother was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 2006. As Kristin and Kayla were constantly sick with colds and coughs at the time, they couldn’t see their grandmother for fear that she catch their kid germs. Lee decided to start an online photo blog wherein his mother could see her granddaughters and what was going on in their lives. As time went by, the photos of Kristin and Kayla became more and more inventive and fantastical, and Lee and the girls’ internet fame was set in motion.

“Most of the ideas come from the girls,” says Lee of his creative process. “From observing them play, or hearing the funny and outrageous things they say. Their day to day life also plays a big role for my inspiration.” On his shooting technique: “After coming up with an idea, I then ‘set up' the scene, and often use artificial lighting to enhance the images. It helps to plan out the shoot before hand, so at most, I only have them in the shoot for a minute or two.”

Below are some of the stunning, rib-tickling and heartwarming photos in Lee’s collection. If you want to see more (and why wouldn’t you?), head over to his Flickr page or his official blog. [Read more…]
