Fur nails is the one trend we hope doesn’t catch on. Ever

Nail trends keep getting crazier and crazier each year. Some we loved, like the ombre trend and some we just never understood, like the 3d nail art trend and the bubble nail trend.

In fact let’s talk about the bubble nail trend for a bit.

This is a trend that was solely meant to make you look like you had put on one too many layers of your nail polish. And that would have been fine if it at least looked good.

What  the hell were these supposed to be?!

Thankfully that didn’t catch on here, which was a bit of a surprise to me because nobody loves trend hopping like Nigerians.

Well here is another trend we hope does not catch on, the fur nail trend. Just so you guys know, I tried to think rationally about this trend for hours before putting up this post. Maybe there was someone kind of aesthetic sense to it, or maybe it was convenient fashion or maybe even high fashion. But it’s none of those things, and I just can’t understand why on earth people would want to look like there is hair growing out of their nails.

According to Cosmopolitan, Jan Arnold, style director and co-founder of CND nail polish, sent models down the runway at the Libertine fall/winter 2016 show with legit faux fur on their nails, which was what started off the trend. What I don’t understand is how you are supposed to get anything done in these. How do you do the dishes in them? Or your laundry? Or take a bath.

For whatever reason you might have to hop on this trend, maybe if Bey hops on it, or you are just curious about it, please don’t try this at home. Nigerians have a very low tolerance for iranu (rubbish), which is the only word I can use to describe this trend.
