Approximately 20,000 images with the hashtags #nailart or #nailporn were scraped from Instagram, Tumblr, and Reddit. Using the DCGAN.torch framework, a neural network was trained overnight on the scraped images. Forcing the generator to produce an image at 4000x4000 pixels in size resulted in a pattern which was used to create a dress by Amelia Zhang and Zoe Schlacter.
