Instagram beauty trends come and go, each more outrageous than the next.

I had been making real succulent jewellery and wanted to use the same application on something I had never seen baby succulents used on before, Borg told The Huffington Post.

The artist arranges the colorful plants to creating a bouquet effect on the nail.

To achieve the look, Borg glues baby succulents onto a false nail using Oasis floral adhesive. Once dry, the artist attaches the decorated nail onto her own with nail glue and, voila, Instagram perfection.
