For me as a conceptual nail art blogger, I do indeed get bored occasionally seeing the same type of nail designs created over and over again. So, when Tish exposed the her V-Day creations to me, I was a little concern about the message that might be visually interpreted (Omg, such vulgar words and wait!… is that nail porn?!!). However, the vital goal here is to stay true to what the entire, Cunnt Claws movement is visually about: Representing, silently outspoken nails. Nonetheless, Marlene Rockets did a whimsical job at representing that (Australia staaand-up, you guys know how to leave a bish’ speechless, omg!) What do you guys feel about these nail sets?

Lights-Out! Can you agree that 2013 came and went by way to fast? Gesh! Felt like just the other day we were all celebrating to a new year. But it is all so good, because this year has been such a scenic blessing! With this year coming to an end, we’ve taken a cool new discovery and liking to an Australian artist- Letitia of Marlene Rockets for a distinctive jump to our, exculsive Artist HIGHlight segment this season.
Artist HIGHlight is truly our appreciation to being fearless with nail art- Just like you, I get shock to see all the unusual types of things our “HIGHlight” artist can do while creating phenomenal imagery on nails. Pushing the envelope, Marlene Rockets took the daring control of creating the ultimate, “New Years Eve” sculpted acrylic claws for us, in retrospect to a fresh new start!:
(Sirens sound) Happy Halloween, Cunnts!!!!!! Thanks for tuning in…You could have been doing anything else in the world but you’re here being a nail-addict rocking out the holiday with us and to celebrate, today we have something special for you at this never ending digital party here at, Cunnt Claws. Our cunnt artist, Nikki P (Attitude Nails) has crafted yet another silently outspoken exclusive designed nail set that will both move and uplift your spirits in honor of, Halloween. During the process Nikki stated how these particular characters disturbed her childhood’s psychological (We don’t blame you girl, gessh!). Even in this day and age, the creational process for Nikki was hard to fathom, as to why these imaginary character still haunts her adulthood, but we are sure most of you can identify with her on this one!
The nail-art empahasis today is zoom on the heavy detailing, which each protagonist is bought to life. Petrifying, frightening and mind bothering on every level, we are proud to present to you another segment of, Artist HIGHlight !!! :
Pennywise – From the movie “It” , this scary looking character primarily appears in the form of a clown (Pennywise) in order to attract his preferred prey of young children (This creature can take different form, but mostly appears as Pennywise the clown). The movie follows the adventures of seven children as they are terrorized by Pennywise, who exploits the fears and phobias of his victims in order to disguise himself while hunting for his prey.
Jigsaw– Based on the movie, “SAW“ this character builds deadly traps for his preys, which are often a symbolic demonstration of what Jigsaw perceives as a flaw in the person’s life. Jigsaw calls these tests “games”, and tells the person the “rules” of the game by audio or videotape. The rules are tasks that the person must perform in order to pass the test and survive. On some occasion, Jigsaw uses psychological torture as one of the test being used on his prey. However, the tasks often involve extreme self-mutilation and most of the traps are made of scavenged materials, rusty bolts, decaying iron, or anything else he thinks will help him create a new “game”.
Freddy– A serial killer from the movie, “Nightmare on Elm Street“, who uses a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers, to stalk and kill people in their dreams. All the murders that are suppose to only be in a dream is actually the deaths of each person in reality!!
Chucky – A killer “Good Guy” doll that had his soul transferred into the doll, seen in the movie, “Childs Play“, by using voodoo. In the first three films, he looks like a normal doll, but in the last three, he has many scars and stitches on his face and body. Despite his small size, Chucky has the strength of a full-grown man. He has tried to transfer his soul into others to escape his “Good Guy” doll body and get his revenge on the people. He fails to do so to, killing anyone who stands in his way.
