'Aquarium Nails' Are The Most Creative, Least Necessary Nail Trend Yet

Don't lie, we know you want to try it.

Another crazy trend is rippling through the wild world of nail art -- and this time, it's aquatic.

"Aquarium nails" are not exactly what they sound like, in that there are no actual fish involved (that we know of). The style is, however, like an aquarium in that a special double-paned artificial nail is injected with glitter and water or baby oil to mimic the effect and movement of sparkling water.

Đẹp tuyệt vời luôn :D (y)★ LIKE 2! Idol, MORE VIDEOS ★

The hypnotizing artwork gained traction after a video from Tony's Nails in Wichita Falls, Texas, made the rounds on Facebook. The video, which was posted to Vietnamese talk show 2! Idol's page, has garnered over 17 million views so far.

The trend is not actually new, as proven by a tutorial from 2013, but if a trip to Wichita Falls isn't in your immediate future, you might want to try it out for yourself. As a warning, DIY-ing this trend is not for the easily frustrated -- we got restless just watching. And just try to get those sequins inside the nail. Ugh.
