If you thought nails couldn't get anymore drastic, Mexico had other plans in mind. While many women like to keep it simple when it comes to their nails, women south of the border have a new found trend they're currently raging about and it's nothing like you would imagine. While we all happen to be familiar with gel and acrylic manicures, Mexican woman are bringing a little something called 'scorpion manicures' to the salons -- and yes, whatever you happen to be thinking is probably more or less accurate.
This trend came about last year after a scorpion connoisseur and her friend who happened to own a nail salon decided to the create the unique, yet dangerous trend. Although the scorpions are killed before being applied to the nail, women who undergo this nail routine are still capable of possible side effects including swelling, increased heart beat and even death. While you have to be a huge scorpion lover or extremely adventurous to give this manicure a try, you would be surprised how many women are already hooked on this trend.

Are you adventurous enough to give the scorpion manicure a try?

I'm sure someone will do it or something similar before you know it @SeoInHan
this seems cruel, if it was furry there would be outrage, just because it's an insect doesn't mean it's life is worth nothing. a good artist could draw or someone could make a transfer
damn, that is crazy... but I'm still a little confused by why they put it in alcohol.
I can totally understand where you're coming from. It would make a lot more sense to just draw it or maybe transfer a 3D image if that became possible instead @MichelleGambier
I guess maybe to try to kill off some of the poison @patriciaperezm8
