Putting the two words “fungi” and “nails” together is usually never a good thing. But Brie Larson just got some beautiful fungi painted on her nails and we’re flipping our mushroom tops! Larson’s “Turkey Tail mushroom” nails by nail artist Michelle Won are certainly out there, but incredibly beautiful and unique.
Larson based her design off of the Turkey Tail mushroom, a fungi known for its immune-boosting properties and healing effects for those going through chemotherapy and treatment for HIV/AIDS. This little rainbow fungi can also heal HPV and is even thought to prevent breast cancer.
All that, plus it’s rainbow exterior translates extremely well to a nail design.
