Japanese manicurist Hatsuki Furutani and +Ring have collaborated on a fun stop-motion short film called ‘Transforming,’ bringing nail art to life. Utilizing 3D printing, over 500 nails were made, glued and unglued individually on a model’s fingers and captured for each frame. Animation data was imported into the ProJet 660 Pro full-color 3D printer.
The stop-motion animation was created without the use of any computer graphics. Check out the fun film below, and click here to learn more about the project. There is also a making-of video to tell you how to animate your own manicure and a Tumblr for your GIF-reblogging needs.
