Scorpions on Nails – level 2

Scorpions on Nails – level 2

24-10-2016 15:00

Nail art sometimes goes to extremes, but this trend could be something even a little dangerous. Customers in Mexico can now have a scorpion glued on a nail. One scorpion costs around $3.

Scorpions are highly venomous, and you can die if one stings you. The team says that its scorpions are not venomous after they die. The team also uses tweezers to put them on nails.

The trend is not for everyone. Some people react positively, while others think that it is a horrible and tacky trend.

Difficult words: venomous (with venom – poison), tweezers (an instrument for moving small things), tacky (showing poor taste and quality).
