'Weird But True' headlines this week

UNDATED (KTHV) -- From caves that are only accessible after a harsh winter to a diver's close call with a shark, 'THV 11 This Morning' catches you up on some Weird But True headlines.

The ice caves of Lake Superior

Over the past few months more than a hundred thousand people have journeyed to the Northern tip of Wisconsin for a chance to see the dozens of ice caves stretching for over a mile along the coast. What makes the caves truly unique is that this is the first winter in five years they have been accessible. Visitors can only get to the caves by marching over ice-covered Lake Superior. Inside each cave visitors find a unique icy masterpiece, all courtesy of Mother Nature.

Diver comes face-to-face with shark

Jason Dimitri was spearing lionfish in the western Caribbean Sea when a reef shark came out of no where and attacked him. He was seventy feet below the surface. The diver filmed the action on his GoPro 3 camera and managed to capture the moment the Caribbean reef shark swam towards him with its jaws open. Dimitri says he was able to fend the shark off with his spear. Despite this close call, Dimitri wrote on his YouTube page that he will definitely be going back in the water.

New app turns Instagrams into nail art

Your next selfie could be your next manicure. Nail art enthusiasts will be able to indulge their wildest design dreams with NailSnaps, an app to lets users create nail polish stickers using their personal photos. Users position a photo on a set of digital nails to preview the final product; it can be a continuous design that becomes whole when you hold your fingers side-by-side. The stickers are then printed and shipped worldwide. Funds for the project are being raised through a Kickstarter campaign that ends April 1. As of Tuesday, it had more than $16,000 out of its $47,381 goal.
