Back in high school, I never really cared about my nails or how my hands look. I actually cared so little that I was a nail biter… Guilty as charged, I was part of that group.
Later on, when I joined Instagram, I would run into different nail designs and that inspired me to cut off my old habits. Nowadays, I keep my nails clean and quite long. And I often search the internet trying to find cute and easy-to-achieve nail designs.
However, this is not an article where you can find cute nail designs. It runs more along the lines of how-on-earth-did-that-happen.
1. Nail art is simple.
Right? I beg to differ. Even newspaper design is doomed to fail when not done correctly.

What can go wrong painting a couple of stripes on your nails? According to this picture, plenty of things can indeed go wrong.

I don’t know what is going on here and I am not sure I want to know.

4. Bubble nails
This design looks rather painful. Like a bad blister.

5. Marble effect?
You can’t really tell what is going on, but I’m supposing this was an attempt in achieving marble-like nails.

6. Confetti-like nails.
I think they took the “just doodle” advice way too seriously.

White and red are two very Christmassy colors, but blue? Really? Or was it a 4th of July design… We will never know..

8. Cute color combination.
The outcome though, not that cute. Sorry, not sorry. But if it matters, these would be great if the lines were cleaner. W-a-a-y cleaner!

When I said I wear my nails long, I didn’t mean THIIIIS long. Above all, these nails look unhealthy. Like a misshapen claw.

10. I don’t know what to tell you…
I don’t know why, but I want to know just how this person got to this point. It looks like some nail polish pouring happened here… We’ll never know pt.2
11. French tips…
French tips gone really, really wrong.

12. Bee look-alike.
I know beauty is in the eye of the beeholder, but what is this?

And people do this on purpose… I truly can’t relate.

No shame in sharing that we have all tried this one. And we all got this result.
