    I didn't know what bubble nails were either, they're completely repulsive.

    Bubble Nail Art: A New Trend?

    1


    I received several pictures of some unique nail art from nail tech Hoa Bui at Ann's Nail Salon in Philadelphia. The acrylic nails were built up, not out, in a style she referred to as “short, curve bubble nails” (not to be confused with “water bubble nails,” which are enhancements that feature encased nail embellishments suspended in water).

    Bui says, “Bubble nails require building and sculpting of the acrylic until you get the look your client wants to achieve. You have to know exactly where the hump is supposed to be, then slowly build the nails. You start with a ball of acrylic in the middle of the nail, which is the highest part of the hump. The nail has to be thin at the cuticle, then it gradually gets thicker as it gets to the middle of the nail plate. Then from the middle of the nail plate it has to gradually get thinner at the tip of the nail, like a nice smooth hill. The curve has to be perfect.”

    Have you seen this nail style before? What do you think of it? Is it popular in your area? Leave me a comment in Feedback.

    Whoever invented bubble nails needs to be publicly flogged.

    It must be nice to have someone do all your housework, feed you, wipe your bum and pick your nose, because there's no way you could do any of that with those monstrosities on the end of your fingers. Actually I don't really want someone wiping my bum or picking my nose, thanks anyway.

    I like the ombre nails too but I wouldn't try it myself.

    I mostly pin recipes and clothes and jewelery I can't afford. I do have some DYI pins I will never ever do though.

    I saw a ridiculous one the other day called "flocked nails" which is basically astroturf or stuffed animal material on the nail. Of course people were raving about it and writing comments about how unique and out of the box it was and how they can't wait to do it. I bet the people who 'OMG Looooove' this nail art shit are the same ones naming their kids things like 'Preslee' and 'Payzlee'. If it's idiotic and part of a cliched trend posing as something groundbreaking and unique, they're all over it.

    ^^ I'd imagine it's a bit like wearing velour; lint stuck all over in a matter of minutes.

    Heck! I'm just envious of the length that they got - they're not very long (maybe too long for the design), but I can't get mine to grow a whole much longer than the end of my fingers

    Apart from the first couple which are woeful, some of these are pretty clever but it doesn't mean I'd wear any of them. They're kind of like the ikea of nails - they look cute in the catalogue but I wouldn't want most of that junk in my home (or on my fingers).

    I agree. I can appreciate the effort and even the result, but I don't know that I'd want to look at it more than once.

    I think the one that grosses me out the most is the nude color with the rainbow-colored French stripes. I understand light colors and neutrals, but I don't understand why you'd want your nails to be the same shade as your skin...with a splash of color. It's weird.

    Yeah that one's ugly and badly executed. I like the matt black with the patterns and the ones that look like fishnet stockings.
