The 3D printed nail jewelry produced by TheLaserGirls is bringing a new dimension to the traditional manicure – and perhaps pedicure as well. Although it may be difficult to find rings or shoes to accommodate some of their more 'alienesque' designs, this nail art is decidedly cooler than your standard set of press-on acrylic nails.

Their designs are available in a variety of colors and range in appearance from 'weird-bumpy-spikey' to 'dominatrix-mechanical-raven claw' (often with a dash of reptile or flowers). Needless to say, these fingernails are not for the faint of heart.

New York City based digital artists Sarah C. Awad and Dhemerae Ford are the TheLaserGirls. The team was last week's Shapeways 3D Designer in Residence at the Museum of Art and Design.

Sarah and Dhemerae use a Form 1 3D printer and a variety of plastics and metals to realize their unique nail designs. In this awkwardly shot video from the stairwell of the Museum of Arts and Design, the duo briefly describe their work.
