Fierce or Fugly? The Bubble Nails Manicure Craze

Forget the stiletto nail – there is a new nail shape in town and it’s taking social media by storm. The look for your talons is the curved nail, hump nail or the bubble shaped nail. To achieve the look, your manicurist covers your nails with acrylic, building it up thick in the middle and allowing it to thin out, creating a curve in the nail.

Sure – the bubble nail seems to be an acquired taste for some, but one woman’s fugly is the next woman’s fierce.
