Fresh hues and finishes — from deep ruby reds and galaxy blues to confetti-like glitter and plums that pop — will make everyone stop and stare at your nails.
Hair brands drew inspiration from the Spring 2017 Alexander Wang runway, the Fall 2018 Fendi couture catwalk, and professional stylists to reimagine this classic tool.
There are two types of beauty trends: real and internet. The real ones—the color-blocked lids, the dark lips, the golden highlighter — actually appear on runways and in beauty collections, with the ostensible goal of one day showing up on your actual body. SEE ALSO: Why you probably, definitely shouldn't buy into this beauty trend The internet ones, by and large, are just done for Instagram. And that's why they can be so weird. Squiggle brows are great for the feed, but not so practical for real life. They sure are fun to look at, though. Here are the best we've come up with so far ... and the year ain't over yet. 1. Squiggle brows A post shared by Claudia (@claudia__.w) on Jul 11, 2017 at 3:55am PDT This trend transforms your brows into tiny snakes, or worms, or little Taylor Swifts, or whatever you want to call them. And no, no one actually plucked their eye mustaches into a squiggle shape — they mostly used washable glue as a shaping agent. 2. Squiggle lips Ladies: are we here for this new squiggly lip trend? pic.twitter.com/14t2SOLZAk — brooke alyce (@brookegotuhookd) September 1, 2017 The obnoxious cousin of squiggle brows, squiggle lips quickly emerged as the mostly-a-prank way to freak out your Instagram followers with a single image. The earliest iterations were made with FaceTune, not actual lip products, but that didn't stop people from trying. 3. Nose hair extensions A post shared by Davison (@davisonvideo) on Oct 6, 2017 at 7:41pm PDT As a species, we deserve nothing. As a result, now we have nose hair extensions. These are just fake eyelashes, but glued to a nose. (You can also glue them to your lips, or wherever else, we guess.) 4. Lightning bolt brows A post shared by Zakia WAHBI (@shinybeautiz) on Sep 18, 2017 at 7:25am PDT Squiggle brows, but for Harry Potter fans. You can also attempt lightning bolt eyeliner if you're feeling fancy. 5. Braided brows A post shared by @glitterowo on Sep 4, 2017 at 6:23am PDT Anyone can try braided brows, because they're not real. They're Photoshopped. But — and we do not say this lightly — they are a cool look, perfect for Instagram and nothing else. Some people have even mastered the look using makeup, but let's be real, no one expects you to do that. 6. Reverse cat eyeliner A post shared by D A H L I A (@dahliacreates) on Sep 10, 2017 at 9:23am PDT Perhaps the most wearable look on this list, reverse cat eyeliner nonetheless requires a lot of genuine technical skill. For one thing, you have to have to master winged liquid eyeliner, which is already impossible. Then, you have to draw the wing on the inner corner of your eye. Geniuses only. 7. Pom-pom face A post shared by Heather Moorhouse (@makeupmouse) on May 6, 2017 at 2:00am PDT In May, several beauty bloggers welcomed the nascent springtime by affixing pom-poms to their faces with eyelash glue. If you want to look more like a ball pit, you're just one trip to the craft store away from your dream. 8. Fidget spinner nail art Unfortunately, fidget spinners are over, but can fidget spinner nail art live on forever? (No.) Want to try one of these, er, looks for yourself? See you on Instagram. Or bring them out into the world if you want. Your life is yours to live. WATCH: This personal tea brewer will get your tea right every time
