Even Elephants are Getting Pedicures for NYE

Okay, so maybe these elephants weren’t getting their nails did for New Year’s Eve per se, but they did get all dolled-up in Nepal for a three-day, elephant-themed festival. Bright colors were lacquered on their tootsies with a paintbrush as bright, beautiful designs were drawn on their faces. The festival was held to encourage Nepal tourism and? raise awareness about preservation efforts. It included such events like an elephant beauty pageant, elephant soccer and elephant races. But we’re more interested in the types of nail art that could happen with toenails this big! See photos after the jump.
