Get a Picture-Perfect Manicure Using Instagram Shots as Nail Art (PHOTOS)

Lisa Fogarty | Mar 18, 2014 Beauty & Style

The next new nail art fad isn't just super cool or pretty, it actually turns you into a makeup artist/guru! Sure, you may think you're already in control of the look and style of your nails when you choose an interesting design at your nail salon. But imagine being able to actually take photos you've shared on Instagram and turn them into seriously unique nail polish stickers!

Thanks to a new app called NailSnaps, this awesome idea is set to become a reality this fall.

The NailSnaps app itself will be free. Beauty mavens can position a photo from their Instagram on a set of digital nails to be able to envision how their final product might actually look. Users can then order a set of stickers for less than $20 and get them delivered. Fun!

Of course, this creates a whole host of amazing nail art possibilities -- but, judging by people's Instagram photos, we're expecting some will be quite bizarre, as well. Here are 8 Instagram pics we expect to find on nails this fall.

Would you try NailSnaps? What Instagram photos would you choose for your nails?
