Bad Nails

Last night, when I should have been prepping for a meeting on equity and teacher inquiry, I was browsing Pinterest looking for some nail inspiration (naturally).  Now, my sister would tell you that my taste borders on tacky, at times; I like sequins, gold, bling, and lots of color.  However, some of my findings left me . . . befuddled.  For instance:

heading to the casino, are we?

Chanel = classy.  This = opposite.

I'm really hoping this is a child with extra large hands

oh look, it gets worse!

If your obsession with labels goes this far, then I don't know what to say

WTF

I know it takes all kinds to make the world spin and all that, but daaaaaaaaamn.  Those are some fugly "manicures."  I'm also kinda ready for that ring finger trend to be over--everywhere I look, I see a hand painted one color with the ring finger a different color/design.  

cliche (noun): something that has become overly familiar or commonplace

Okay, done with my bitchfest.  I'll be back tomorrow with something less whiny . . . in the meantime, link up here:

Hahaha. The first ones remind me of something Beth from Dog The Bounty Hunter would wear.

Christina said...

Hahahahah! I love this! I'm over all the nail trends. I stick with one color. And that last one? How do you even get dressed? Ridic!

April said...

Ick, eyes don't belong on your fingernails. Ever.

Dee Stephens said...

Pretty bad!!! I rarely paint my nails. They just chip and it drives me crazy.

The Poppy Creative said...

As one who always has her nails painted, this made me laugh so much! Haha what the heck was with the last one?! Wowzer. I won't lie though, sometimes I like to shake it up with one nail different to rest, although only slightly! None of these contrasting colour hi jinks!

Ah Claire, this made me happy <3

Christianna said...

OMG, what the hell is up with those nails?! That was wonderfully scary!

You should link this up for What The Hell Wednesday over at my blog!

Lindsey said...

GA-ROSS!! I can't handle the 2 color nails, but I do love one glitter nail! Shame on me.

These pins are atrocious. I lol'd at "heading to the casino, are we?" hahaha

Tiffany said...

hahaha i'm pretty sure the first one is alice and wonderland, not casino.... but anything with a bunch of crap glued on/hanging from your nails is a bit much for me.

that said, i would probably rock the hell out of some cookie monster nails for a day.

(disclaimer: my nails are all naked and neatly trimmed short unless i get them done (RARE), and are generally indistinguishable from a child's hand if not for my wedding ring. dimple knuckles and all.)

i've been doing the ring finger different color since i was 16 and started to get my nails done every month. sometimes i switch it up, but i don't think that is something i'll ever give up. to me it isn't a trent i saw and picked up, ya know?

anyway.. those nails are a tad bit ridiculous.

missy. said...

trend* not trent.. haha epic fail.

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

OK the last set just looks downright painful! lol

H. Gillham said...

and to think I was sure you would be writing about --- flat heads, bullet heads, and sheet metal...

:)

Meanwhile, those manicures -- all kinds of crazee...they made me wanna hand them a good set of clippers.

Megan said...

It takes way less effort and less hygeine to just bite your fingernails like I do. I don't even have to cut them! (Nastyyy right?)

Jax said...

Whhhhoa those are ridiculous! The burberry ones are crazy! Who takes that much time to do something like that?!

Megan said...

Haha is it sad that I think that some of these are clever... only really the seaseme street ones. The last ones are horrendous!!

FourJedis said...

So which one did you settle on? Is it bad that I loved the muppet one? Did you know that O.P.I. has a muppet line out right now and it's pretty sweet. I haven't gotten a manicure in probably 2 years, but I love pedicures... sporting sparkly bluish purple for the upcoming Ravens game. If/when I get a manicure, I'm going to go with shellac, as it dries instantly and is the only thing that stands a chance against my weight-lifting man-hands. Fun post!

robayre said...

he he he

sheba said...

does that mean we can't get manicures together when i'm in sf?

rebecca said...

Deals, Steals and Heels said...

glitter = fun.

glitter and sequins and plastic bows and a complete lack of taste = HORROR.

Ocean Dreams said...
