Love Them or Leave Them: Crazy Nails



Hey Everyone, 

A few months ago I started a series of posts called 'Love Them or Leave Them' in which I showed you some super 'unique' hairstyles, shoes, etc., and asked you to decide which ones you'd love to try or hate to wear. This 'Love Them or Leave Them' post features some pretty outrageous manicures. With the recently popularity of 'konad' nail stamps, I have been seeing some really awesome manicures from my fellow beauty bloggers, but in my opinion, the manicures in these pictures go a little too far for my taste. So, my question to you is, which of these nail designs would you love to sport and which are just a little too scary to wear?

  2. LEAVE ALL OF THEM. Nasty, ugly, tacky and gross. Sorry if I offend anyone but I don't like these at all.

  5. The Hello Kitty ones would be doable ( I don't dig Hello Kitty but at least I could function) or the sharp cut short ones...the uber long ones just gross me out! Especially those long toe nails..blech!!!

  8. Oh my...

    3/4 of them are impractical for everyday wear/use and the other 1/4 of them are downright scary or gross as many others have said. Nail art taken to extremes can I suppose be best described as the famous saying "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," and I'm beholding none of the above at this moment.

    I've seen some odd ones at cosmetology and makeup trade shows in person and they generally make me cringe a bit.

  9. I would rock the hello kitty ones! But the other ones are too impractical and would probably and most likely get my whole nail torn off :-0

  10. HUWAAAA!!! LEAVE EM! just looking at them makes me squirm! ahahaha! the first time i have seen the woman who's got the world record with the longest nails almost made me threw up... crazy! really crazy! i wonder how these people work with those super long nails... o__O

  11. I'm so creeped out by uber long nails, I just can't take it!!! Leave em x a million.

  12. The one woman with the bleached-out hair is actually the current record holder for longest fingernails, but lost them in a car accident in 2009.

    Those long toenails, however, really need to be clipped. That's disgusting, not to mention means either a) she doesn't walk anywhere, or b) she uses stripper-type shoes with huge platforms and open toes, and her nails click on the floor as she walks (which is a HUGE pet peeve of mine!).

    The pinked-edge nails are horrible! You can tell they just sawed and cut into the nail to do that, and it's so incredibly damaging that I can't fathom why anyone would want to.

    Also, if you're gluing multiple nail tips together end-to-end (#6), you're doing it wrong.

  13. Oh my...
    How do any of these people get anything done? All I did was shake my head while scrolling down, haha! To each their own, but this is something I would definitely, definitely leave!

  16. omg. my eyes! frightening. the only ones that were remotely cool were the spikey ones (for originality) and the HK ones... but realistically totally impractical!

  17. The second to last picture with the woman holding the tree really reminds me of salad fingers... creepy! xxx

  18. I've love to wear the Hello Kitty ones, and the one that look like teeth but the rest are just scary.
    Especially the ones with really long nails. Makes me shudder hahaha. xxx

    ReplyDelete
  20. Uhh, I hate nails that are too long. I like the way the first Hello kitty design looked, but I'm not a fan of her. Leave em!

  28. The longer ones remind me of a Freddie Krueger glove!

    I love nail art but these aren't to my taste but each to their own right? :D

  33. I just fell into this website and just had to comment
    I´m pleased and amazed to see such creativity...but for the real world? for people that actually use their hands(and feet).....a little difficult for daily life don´t you think? For my taste, it goes too far. For art...some pic´s are amazing! others(for instance the scary witch lady)...not a good look for anybody, I feel.
    Awesome to find this kinda stuff on the internet on the other hand ;) my mind is BLOWN!
