We Talked To The Creator Of This Insane 53 Layer Manicure

Yesterday, we posted the above picture of a 53 layer manicure on Facebook. The photo took off, so we decided to talk to Kas, the creator of the viral manicure. Kas is one of 3 contributors of the nail polish blog Varnished Valkyrie (they post tons of amazing nail art and swatches). She was bored one night, and decided to see how 10 layers of nail polish would look on her nails. After that, she decided to add 10 more layers, and the experiment began. But why did she stop at 53? Well, she only had 53 nail polishes that she didn’t mind using. Kas told us, “I may be mad, but I wasn’t about to use any of my limited edition Chanels.” We don’t blame her!

Kas, who started the blog as hobby with her best friends Robyn and Georgia, paints her nails an average of 3 times a week. She doesn’t have any manicures quite this crazy planned for the future, but she told us, “I’m always trying to think of things that are a little off kilter. Then again, I could always try for 100 coats!”

Although this extreme manicure was kind of a goof, the girls at Varished Valkyrie do some truly amazing nail art. Click through the slideshow to see a few of our favorite manicures from their blog.
