Marc Ecko wrote e.g.:

“Today, we’re appreciating sexy women with sexy nails. Not just any manicured hand will do—we’re talking about nails with either scandalous length, crazy colors, or impressive nail art. Remember Coko from SWV? How about the O.G. Puerto Rican hottie, Ivy Queen? OK fine, those are a little extreme, but here’s our round-up of the 10 female celebrities with the sexiest nails.”

Recent developments in fashion indicate: fingernail trends come and go. While in the 70’s long fingernails became very popular – as a sign that the person belongs to the ‘leisure class’ – with the rising popularity of artificial nails that trend disappeared quickly. Will ‘faces on fingernails’ become a new trend?

But wearing a ‘face on fingernail’ is actually just another example of nail art – which was already classified under the header: ‘bad fingernail trends’.
