Does Nail Art Prove That Anything Can Be A Canvas for Artistic Expression?

Nail Art is all over the internetz, and suddenly it is a THING. The crazier the nail art, the more we marvel at the technique and time that went into it. But is there an artistic message behind these little cuticle canvases? Nail Art may seem superficial and trivial, but its fleeting nature allows it to be a purely free expression, and it’s pretty to boot. Nail art makes us wonder if anything, given enough creativity, can be a canvas for artistic expression.
