Nail Art That Will Make Us Cringe

Trends, they come and go. Some are beautiful, and we bring them back, but some are so cringeworthy that in 10 years we will hope no one remembers those photos – you know which ones. They make us wish we lived before Facebook, Twitter or Instagram or, come to think of it, any camera. Such trends are the ones below, and they are from the “what were they thinking” category and make you straight to your trusted nail polish removers:

  1. Aquarium nails

We all love the ocean, but the truth is, the ocean, well, it is beautiful just as it is no need to bring it onto our nails, or anyone’s nails for that matter. We mean, we get the whole mermaid look and hair and make-up but why the nails? Don’t get us wrong, the colors are beautiful but why would you want water with sparkles constantly on your nails? But enough said, you have to see it, to know what we’re talking about:

Note: We are not talking about the quality of the work because they are HARD to do, so kudos to the people who have such skills, but… they’re just not our thing.

 

  1. Long Stiletto nails

Stiletto nails, we love them. They were in fashion, had a little break and came back now stronger than ever. But extra super long stiletto nails… why? You can’t do anything with them, except maybe use them as a very powerful weapon. These can really only be useful when grabbing small creatures from mid-flight.

  1. Corkscrew nails

Now come on, even the name says it all: corkscrew nails. Got to hand it to them, they are great for people who enjoy wine; it’s like having a bottle opener with you all the time. But unless you are that person, we have no idea why they exist and for what other purpose have they been created. I just picture them getting hooked on everything, especially hair.

  1. Holographic nails

It’s the 90’s again. With chokers, mom jeans, bomber jackets and neon everything, holographic nails were bound to happen. And as the 90s, our 10 years older selves will have mixed feeling living through them. But also because we lived in the 90s…we have to admit it: we REALLY like them. We cannot hide it any longer. They may be the guilty pleasure of this list because we will regret admitting any good thing about them but come on, look at them, even men should wear them, with body sparkles and flatforms. And bell bottoms. Disco baby!

  1. Unicorn nails

These can only be cool for the 5-year-old in you, but highly not recommended. We mean, we already have unicorn onesies (that we secretly love, by the way) but nails? The whole idea of a unicorn is that it’s a horse with one horn, not 10. So unless you choose one nail to work with and stick to it, their name and purpose are obsolete. This is what happens when you watch too much My Little Poney.

  1. Pearl nail art

Pearls haven’t been in fashion since grandma’s time, and the only two people we accept wearing them are Marge and Lisa Simpson. But somehow, pearls have managed to come back in fashion, on nails. And in different shapes and sizes. We’re sorry, but they look as if the nails caught something and need to be treated A.S.A.P. And if this wasn’t bad, they usually are paired with a doily design. You might as well sit on your grandma’s TV.

  1. Furry nails

No. Just no. What? And why? Not sure if to laugh or to cry… These nails are just so awful people should be ashamed of wearing them now, let’s forget 10 years from now. Well, the internet never forgets so be careful ok? Just be careful. If you get any ideas at list keep them in your circle or even better keep them as ideas. And in 10 years you will thank your younger selves for just skipping this one. Enough words, see for yourselves. This is how it all began:

People, overall, our advice is: DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME (except maybe for the holographic, but just maybe, we’re not sure).
