Aquarium nails are apparently a thing, and they are totally WEIRD


So, we are just a few weeks in to 2017, and we have already seen so many bizarre beauty trends.

The latest obscure beauty trend is aquarium nails, and we just don't really understand them.


First and last attempt. Exclusively for you @wanyigabyzac #sgnails #miwasg #soqnails #aquariumnails

Nail artists use acrylic, baby oil (or water) and nail baubles to create mermaid-approved claws that are a little bit OTT, even for us.

This nail trend is similar to the snow globe nails of 2016, but with a little bit of under-the-sea flair.

Equipped with glitter (and lot's of it) and various mermaid-related gems, these nails are truly outrageous, in a weirdly wonderful kind of way.

While they do look pretty cool on Instagram, we don't think we'll be trying them any time soon.
