Not fond of bugs? You might want to look away. The latest in weird beauty trends is dead bug nail art, and it's not for the squeamish. That being said, if you're interested in all things gothic and avant garde, this trend might be right up your alley.

Nail art is nothing new, from geeky designs to sparkly, three-dimensional sculptures. But nail artist Nicole Casati, the owner of Deadly Nails in Melbourne, Australia, takes the spa treatment one step further by providing manicures that use real bugs. Her painstaking work encases tiny insects and other natural materials inside gel polish. These Deadly Nails manicures celebrate the beauty found in nature – though they're definitely on the edgy side.

Check out dead bug nail art, your newest beauty obsession. And don't worry, no animals were harmed in the making of these looks.
