Scorpion Manicure is fast becoming a thing but would you dare the trend?

Scorpion Manicure is a popular trend in Mexico. It's the art of using small scorpions on the nails then acrylic is painted over them and its dried off using UV light to create some sort of fossil-like designs.

The rather dangerous trend (bearing in mind scorpions are associated with venoms that causes accelerated heart rate and eventually death) became popular late last year and has become an in-thing over in Mexico.

Though the scorpions are killed before they are applied to the nail, it still looks pretty dangerous and extreme  a trend, no?

Watch a video of how it started and how it's done over there in the video below.

Would you try the manicure trend?
