Mani With Mini People! Here’s a manicure that puts the world at your fingertips. Alice Bartlett has impressed us by turning her fingernails into grass covered turf complete with miniature people for fun nails that may inspire you to do the same.

All you need is some green nail polish, some nail glue, some Donjer flocking fibers, and tiny HO scale or N scale figurines from model train hobby companies (there are links to purchase all of these at the end of the post). You may want to add animals, trees, whatever. When it comes to model scale figurines, you can go wild. They make mini people mooning and flashing, kissing and dancing, riding bikes, and much more.

The basic recipe is the same.
