11 popular nail trends for people who never actually have to use their hands.

Nail art is a fantastic way to express yourself, complement your outfit, or collect bacteria. When people put so much effort into making fingers fancy, it's hard to believe the art can survive a day of work, or just any activity that involves fingers interacting with the elements. If you're lucky enough to not have to use your hands all that often or ever, here are the coolest styles to sport if you're fingers are just used for decoration.

1. Bubble Nails

Bubble nails got so dangerous that salons released warnings against them. While the blobs might make the fingers look thinner, it must be hard to keep your balance with all that weight at the tips.

2. Furry Nails

For the glamorous woman who wants to feel like The Grinch, and also never needs to wash their hands or deal with liquids of any kind.

3. Duck Feet Nails


Duck feet are already an unlikely inspiration for a glamorous look, but it also looks damn near impossible to get a grip.

4. Stiletto Nails

Should be illegal, due to their unique ability to stab.

5. 3D Nails

At worst, the props fall off instantly. At best, they get caught in every object you hold.


6. Snow Globe Nails

Elsa herself would most certainly lack the patience for this.

7. Pom Pom Nails

A cousin of Furry Nails, Pom Pom Nails add the extra cuteness of looking like teeny-tiny Pomeranians living on your fingertips.

8. Polish Mountain Nails


More of a challenge than a fashion choice, people still spend hours globbing on layer after layer of polish at the expense of their cuticles.

9. Pierced Nails

Not only is it a bizarre process, a dangly doohickey can get in the way of just about everything.

10. Hole-y Nails.

Not only are these dangerously long, but things can get stuck in there.


11. Aquarium Nails

It's been a while since I've done some #aquariumnails 💦 #tb

With a real life air bubble at the end of the nail, aquarium nails ironically don't go well with water.
