Metaverse Makeovers partnered with the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) to create a special Augmented Reality Nail Salon for the China Up Close Program !
Taking place in the ACMI Lightwell, interactive 3D bling pops in real-time off your freshly painted and augmented nails. Led by Metaverse artists and featuring online personalities Louna Maroun, Lexie Laphor, and ShiShi Face of the Metaverse - this collaborative installation was cross-streamed live to China for a simultaneous #nextlevelnails event in Shanghai.

As witnessed with the launch of the next generation of wearable technology, the internet of things is here to stay, and personal expression is becoming inexorably linked to augmented and virtual reality.
