One man fungus nails is another man’s paperweight. At least that’s what this cock-headed cuticle collector is banking on. He’s been collecting his own nail clippings for years and turning the dead cells into balls of office decor.
Drake managed to get a year’s worth of nails into a Ziploc baggie, approximately 1,040 clippings, not that he counted them. He’s not that obsessive). He was going to throw them out when he had a sudden burst of inspiration.
“I realized I went to all that effort, and I figured, in for a penny, in for a pound,” he said. “I already worked with acrylics as a hobby so I decided to make paperweights.”
Drake makes one nail clipping paperweight a year and prefers to make them in a green coloring — but not because it resembles toenail fungus.
“I like the jade color because it gives off an emerald quality,” he said.
They say they miss the toe, Drake. Girl, don’t tempt me.
Each paperweight goes for $300-$500. There’s no mention if people actually buy the paperweights and I don’t care enough to find out. I’ll assume he’s sold every single piece because I hate this world.
