A new design has emerged that makes it possible to make a nail that will last, but can also be made into something beautiful.
This year, Australian nail artists have been inspired to create a nail inspired by the survivors of the 2001 tsunami, who have suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.
The design by designer Natalie Ayliffe-Jones, from the Sydney-based design studio The Aylifolds, was unveiled last month at the Design Australia Design Festival in Adelaide.
It is a stunning piece of design that incorporates the original nail design, but has been inspired by survivors who survived the disaster.
“I think it is so important to have that balance between beauty and comfort, which is what we really wanted,” said Ms Ayliff-Jones.
“There is a lot of sadness about survivors in this country, but I think it’s important to recognise the incredible bravery of those who were able to get out of the rubble and survive.”
The design was designed by designer Nick Aylifee, from The Aymond.
It was created by a collaboration between The Ayletties and Natalie Aymedd.
“The Ayletta’s design team is the first group of designers to use a survivor-specific nail design to create this nail,” said The Ailetties in a statement.
“It is the design that is most similar to the original design.
It has been developed in collaboration with Natalie Ayleff, the survivor of the tsunami.”
The designers said the design would appeal to a range of consumers, from those with a particular preference for the survivor’s nail designs to those who want to recreate a particular piece of nail art.
“This design is not only an incredibly striking design, it’s also incredibly comfortable to wear,” said Natalie Ailiffe-Jones.
“Nail art can be very abstract and very personal, and I think that this nail design is one of the most unique pieces of nail artwork that I have ever created.”
The nail design was created for the design festival and will be available for purchase on May 15 at the Ayletti Design Store.
