Yes, believe it, this really is a thing...

Not long ago, succulents were humble plants best for keeping atop your desk or gifting to a co-worker. Cactuses and their kin were just low-maintenance flora for lazy gardeners. (Although, it should be noted, back in 2011, someone put succulents in stilettos)

Recently, though, the modest plants jumped from the flower pot to your nails - and you can now grow them on your digits. Yep, not just wear them; Australian artist Roz Berg actually developed a technique that allows the plants to live and thrive on your nail bed.
