Succulent Nails Are The New Beauty Trend And I Kind Of Like Them

I love to see the crazy new trends that roll across the Internets. Most of the time, they make me cringe. Sometimes they surprise me, and they are rather cool. This one, I’m kind of on the fence about.

This trend has to do with fingernails, and I can’t decide whether I love it, or whether it should be buried in the ground where it belongs.

People are putting little succulent plants on their fingernails, and I can’t decide if I love this artistic AF idea. Some of them look pretty awesome some look straight out of a horror movie.

I guess it depends on the nail, what type of succulent you stick on there, and who puts it on. All these are factors that totally must be considered when deciding if these are GENIUS or completely UGLY.

Mostly, I guess they are rather clunky. It seems like they would get snagged on SO many things!

Can you imagine, though. If you wore these to a special occasion, like a party, everyone would be talking about you, and remember your cool-as-hell nails!

Now, if I was just staying around the house, washing dishes and changing diapers all day, I may want to consider going with another trend. It seems these would get knocked off or damaged pretty quickly if I were doing housework.

Something tasteful like this little accent succulent might be cool! I’d totally do this for, like, a wedding or something.

While I PERSONALLY think these are hideous, this might be a better alternative to the trend. Encasing the succulents in clear acrylic, so they don’t catch on EVERY SINGLE THING might be an option for you.

Perfection ✨My journey of getting my nails done started in Brooklyn New York when I was about 14 years old, I went into a nail salon and ask them to put Nails on me like Janet Jackson had in her and Busta Rhymes music video 😌from that day forward my whole life changed 💯 I figured this a way that I can express myself without words, I loved everything about it instantly. From making your appointment down to the last stroke of polish going on my nails🥰 • I have been wanting this specific set of FORMED nails for about 6 months now,I’ve gone to places where they told me it is impossible and I have gone to places where they have tried miserably 🤦🏻‍♀️ I finally found somebody who went out of their way to make my dream set possible, thank you so much to the dream team at @anita_alvizurez 360 beauty spa, i am beyond happy and grateful to you both for making my vision of SUCCULENT nail art come true🥰 • (My gram gram loves succulents,I love love love succulents,the ones on my nails are my favorite .i wanted something to remind me of her and her strength) • P.S if you are a nail tech and you have clients who pay $75 and up for a FILL and more for a full set,I suggest you take pride in your work and fix a broken/falling apart nail same day or next day, NOT a week later and not with an attitude.thats how you lose business 😉 • #nailsdid #nailsofinstagram #succulentnails #formednails #brooklynraised
