Horrible Fashion Trends
It’s about that time for another rant! Unlike the previous post about Uggs, this trend is not an article of clothing or footwear that you can just take on and off. It is an actual modification to your body and it seems to be all the rage on Pinterest and with celebs like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Lana Del Rey. But yours truly… don’t care.
Number 3: Talon or claw nails
This is not a cute fashion trend, this is a weapon! It blows my mind that people actually want to have this done to their nails. Please, tell me, how do you type on a computer with nails like that? How do you text? How has someone not poked their eye out yet?!
Then, on top of people going out of their way to growing out their nails and shaping them in this ghastly manner, they never ever choose a somewhat normal color or design to put on their nails. God forbid they do anything normal. People with hooks for fingers, or talon nails, always choose to go with the most bright, obnoxious, gaudy colors and designs that they can think of. It’s like they blended up a rainbow and a drunk clown, took the colors and just smeared it all over their fingers.

Throughout time it has always been acceptable to have a short to medium cut nail, with a nice color. Hey, if you like designs that is still possible but please, there is a major difference between a cute design and a tacky one.
Next time you consider getting your nails shaped into miniature steak knives, just stop and think, would you rather look like this:
