Beauty and the Brains

When my friend Samira showed me her literary nails, featuring the texts of Foucault, I knew I had to share her brainy fashion statement with you. Though text purists will probably recognize Derrida on the featured photo: “… I am very satisfied with the result. It’s cool, Derrida is telling what is it to learn how to live and how to die, on my nails!! ;)”

Samira Nails


For ladies (and gentelmen, why not) who wish to try the same Samira points us to an online manual for publishing text on your nails.
