Crazy 3D 'Bubble Nails' Are Taking Over As The Latest Manicure Trend (Photos)
Recently, a new trend popped up all over social media, and I have to say, this might be one of the strangest beauty crazes I've seen in a while.
Behold, bubble nails.
Bubble nails, also known as hump nails, ditch the flat, boring fingernails and, instead, use layer upon layer of acrylic to turn your nails into bodacious 3D designs.
Now, you're probably wondering,
How the hell do you even get your nails to look like that?
Hoa Bui of Ann's Nail Salon told NAILS magazine,
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.
I'm not really sure how I feel about decking my digits out in dome-shaped acrylic.
But if you're brave enough, there are lots of different bubble nail variations you can try out.
Take a look at the pictures below to see this new nail art trend.
