Kiwami Japan, a Japanese YouTuber famous for turning random objects like pasta, fish, and even underwear into knives, created a cheap engagement ring using fingernail clippings he collected over an entire year.
In the video, which Kiwami Japan posted three months ago, the YouTuber goes into detail about how he created the ring. He starts by showing off a small glass jar filled with nail clippings he saved up, World of Buzz reported.
He then proceeded to blend the nails and grind them into a fine powder using a coffee hand grinder before adding water to turn it into a paste-like substance.
The YouTuber took the paste-like substance and put it into the oven for 90 minutes. After it was done, the finished product turned into some sort of clay, which he then molded into a diamond.
After that, Kiwami Japan put the molded clay-like nail into a silver ring he also created.
Many internet users shared their mixed reactions online after Kiwami Japan’s video went viral. Here’s what some of them wrote in the Twitter thread from South China Morning Post:
