Japanese manicure artist Hatsuki Furutani and the director Mizuki Kawano have collaborated to make a stop-motion animation that shows nail art coming to life and transforming into charming scenes. A total of 521 nails were created using a 3-D printer. Then, the production team attached the nails to the hand model and filmed frame-by-frame—in fact, this entire short film was created without using any computer graphics.
