I am all for expressing yourself and being creative, and I love pretty , fancy and decorated nails but there are some things that are just a major “hell no” and here are my top 6.
1. Acrylic nails
I am talking about the loooooong, square shaped acrylics.
Not only are they impractical , you can’t pick up anything, type on the phone or zip up your own pants, but they just absolutely hideous.
Yes, back in the early 90s these were the popular nail fashion (think Coco…SWV lol) but even then I wasn’t a fan but now especially I cringe when I see girls rock these.
2. Overload of nail art
I love decorating my nails. However, sometimes less is truly more. A nice design on one or two nails is fashion forward and can be classy but having glitter, rhinestones, patterns, flowers on every single nail is just tacky as hell. One or two and then keep it moving.
3. Long or fake toe nails
Ok.. This one is probably my most hated trend. Can you even call this a trend? This is just disgusting. Toe nails are not meant to be grown out. You should keep them short, neat and clean. But fake toe nails??? Omg.. I can’t even talk about this anymore.
4. Fingernails different length
When one of my nails breaks, that’s it, they are all getting filed down to that size. Your nails should be the same length, across all 10 fingers. There is no reason why one should be long, next one short, third one crooked… They should all be even.
5. Nails not taken care of at all
Chipped nail polish, chewed out nails, etc are not acceptable. I understand not everyone likes nail polish but in this case, keep them filed, neat, clean and would it kill you to put a coat of clear polish on?
Chipped nail polish makes a woman look dirty and like she does not take care of herself. I have literally been late for work because my nail chipped as I was getting ready and I stayed behind to paint it.
6. French mani/pedi
Ok this is just outdated. Gone. Done. RETIRED. It used to be classy once upon a time but now it’s just ridicilous. Retire this. Maaaybe you can get away with it on your fingernails but toes definitely not.
It just looks as if your toe nails are really long and need to be clipped.
Anyway I’ve got all these photos from Google.. so please don’t hate me or sue me! lolol but hey you put it out there!
