2018 has gifted us with some seriously eccentric beauty trends, we’ve had squiggly eyebrows, glitter tongues, teeth nails, pimple nails, corkscrew nails and coat hanger brows.

However, the year of weirdness isn't quite over, we think we’ve found the strangest craze yet: RAINBOW TEETH.

Yup, dental dye for your pearly whites. People are legit painting their teeth with dental dye to match their outfits.

Seems a bit like The Capitol from the Hunger Games:

We have GOT to see the rainbow trend in action. CHRŌM have released a range of 10 colours for fashion followers to try: light pink, a slightly darker pink, baby blue, a slightly darker blue, mint green, yellow, light gold, dark gold, silver, and copper.

Each pastel shade has its own sugary sweet name, from 'Candy Floss', ‘Sunshine’ to 'Fairy Dust'. Unforch, it’s not edible and doesn’t have a taste.

We reckon if it tasted like actual Candy Floss they’d get a lot more business from those of us with a sweet tooth.

The polish works in the same way as nail polish and stays on your teeth for up to 24 hours. The colour doesn't smudge while eating, and all you have to do to remove the polish is brush your teeth and it's gone.

It sounds pretty weird alright, but the creator David Silverstein claims that the trend is completely taking off.

In an interview with the New York Post, he commented "We see this becoming commonplace – everything from a club vibe to an everyday workplace fashion accent."

"Perhaps you go to work with one tooth that matches your nail polish or your hair colour."

He’s a creative man, that’s for sure.

Silverstein says the product's solvent is made from a grain alcohol base and that the pigments comply with the Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act.

He declined to disclose CHRŌM's full ingredient list for proprietary reasons, but added that the tooth polish is 100% safe and formulated by dentists: “It doesn't stain your teeth, and it's not permanent."

A dentist with NYC Smile Design, Dr. Ramin Tabib, was interviewed about the product and stated that "I have no idea what's in this product and the safety long term. Seems like the company does not want to give the ingredients out and they are calling it proprietary.”

Hmm, potential shadiness there.

Silverstein also revealed that the brand is aiming to release a glittery version of the product soon.

It’s ideal for Halloween, but would you wear the product in your everyday life?

We say go for it, your colourful smile will be catching many an eye.

Summer is officially here which means it’s finally time to put our boots away and get those sandals on.

But after a long winter it’s safe to say that most of our feet probably aren’t in the best sandal-wearing shape.

Unfortunately, not all of us have the time or the money to pop off to the salon to get a pedicure every time our feet are feeling a bit dry or our nails are a bit chipped.

Instead, take a look at our guide on how to give yourself the perfect at-home pedicure.

1. Start your pedicure by removing the dead skin from the soles of your feet. The best way to do this is with a foot file when your feet are still dry.

2. Soak your feet in a bowl of warm water for 10 minutes. Add a reviving foot soak to the water, which will help strengthen and whiten nails.

3. Rub your feet with a foot scrub before taking them out and drying them.

4. Use a cuticle stick to gently push back your cuticles.

5. Use a nail clippers to cut the top of your nails straight across. It is recommended to use a lot of little clips instead of one big one. One big one will make it easier for your nail to break.

6. With a nail file, file around the edges of your toenails to get rid of any pointed or sharp edges.

7. Use a rich foot lotion to gently massage your feet.

8. Using a damp cotton wool pad, wipe the lotion off your feet. Then apply your base coat to the nails.

9. When the base coat has dried, apply your polish. Follow this with a topcoat.
