Today I want to show you a couple of new-ish nail trends that I consider terrible. No, I’m not even sure if terrible is a word strong-enough to describe my feelings.
Caviar effect nails a.k.a. little pearls on your nails: It’s not a new trend, but it won’t end. First of all, it is unpractical, secondly, it is little pearls on your nails! Who in the whole wide world would want something that belongs (in its edible version) on cake on his/her nails? That apart from the fact that some beads will not stick so one ends up with a patchy version of the commercial.
Velvet effect, or grass effect or fuzzy nails or whatever you want to call it: slice open a pillow cushion and put your nails in it. Looks like a chicken just hatched on your nails or a naked cat with hair implants. VERY unfortunate. Above that, despite all funnels and brushes, this fabric thing sticks everywhere (see the picture below of the green fuzzy thing).
Flat matte polishes with glitter/flakes in them: I don’t know who came up with this but jeez that is one hell of an ugly nail polish. Flat matte teal with flakies in there that just make the polish look as if it is weirdly patchy. Add a horrible cuticle floowing formula to the mix and a bit of staining, and you have Maybelline Vintage Leather Turquoise*.
