Have you ever Instagrammed a gorgeous sunset, colorful set of macarons, or even a glamorous selfie that you wouldn't mind seeing more often? Thanks to NailSnaps, now you can! The soon-to-launch app allows you to transform your favorite Instagram shots into a set of nail wraps (translation: you can now dominate those #NailArt and #PhotoOfTheDay hashtags.)

"I was noticing how people were printing out their Instagrams, and I thought if we bring Instagram photos into the physical world, it should be in just as an ephemeral way, so that's kind of where the inspiration for this came from," says co-founder Angel Anderson in a promotional video. This is how it works: the app allows you to upload pictures as one continuous image, with a different part of the photo appearing on each digit, or with the same picture repeated on all five nails. Then you can print out your design into decals, which can last up to a week or longer.

NailSnaps is still in its Kickstarter phase, but starting with just a $5 donation, you will receive early access to the beta version before it officially rolls out to the public. If you contribute $20 or more, you'll also be sent the brand's prototype nail stickers to take on a test run. NailSnaps also plans to launch a marketplace, so you can add other users' Insta-manis to your collection of nail art shots. The project will be funded if it meets its goal of $47,381 by April 1st, so head over to NailSnaps' Kickstarter page to make a donation now!
