It starts out pretty simple. You pick the flavour – dark, milk, white, or even ruby chocolate. Your nail technician (turned chocolatier) then applies 100% real chocolate in thin layers on to your nail, using a foodsafe brush. Then (and this is the fun part), you can choose a couple of toppings to complete the look – hazelnuts, caramel – even edible gold leaf for the *classy* amongst us. Finally, your therapist will use a machine to ‘freeze’ the nails into place – kind of how an LED lamp would be used for gel. The cutting-edge technology allows the chocolate to semi-permanently set, meaning they’re both practical and edible., made entirely from chocolate. If you’re a chocoholic (same) – this one’s definitely for you.
… Happy April Fool’s(!!)
Okay so, *confession*. While we’d love for this to be real – edible nails aren’t really arriving on the scene (not just yet, anyway) – although YouTuber Jessie Mills did give it a good go back in 2016. And whilst sadly, we won’t be eating our nails instead of eggs this Easter – the chocolate-coloured manicure (non-edible version) is most definitely one of the biggest nail trends of the year. Here are a few of our faves that we’ll absolutely be wearing this spring – edible or not.
