Top 10 EXTREME nails!

Hiya everyone! Today I have gone for a bit of a different type of post: my top 10 favourite extreme nails. I find nail art very addictive and once you have done one design its all about going bigger and better. Since my Nail Art Pen Haul, I was scouring the internet for inspiration. I decided to include 10 of my favourites in a post for all to see. So without further ado, at No. 10...

Monopoly Nails! I love these! They are definitely different.

No. 9

No nail art list would be complete with some Hello Kitty!

No. 8

This googly bug design is from Katrina's Nail Blog. She has loads more on her blog too so you should take a look. I would actually wear this myself.

No. 7

Yes, they are REAL sprinkles!! They are actually Katy Perry's nails. She wore them for one of her shows and had to have the gel done extra thick to prevent chipping it while she played guitar. She posted this photo on her Twitter account.

No. 6

Now I'm not sure I could pull this off, I like kawaii and I like decoden but this is a little too extreme for me.

No. 5

Stilletto Nails! These ones look like painted icicles to me haha but I like them.

No. 4

These really are mini works of art. Amazing!


Some more amazing brush skills here with these yummy Cadbury's nails.

No. 2

Woah. I don't even know what these are supposed to be but you have to admire the talent and creativity that has gone into making them. I don't think they would be very practical to have for everyday use! This was a competition entry  for the Fantasy category at London's Nailympics. (Yes, you read that right, Nailympics!)
This was by Italy's Lorena Amici and she won 1st place in her division.

And the winner in first place is....

Au Naturel!  This is Christine Walton, Guinness World Record holder for having the longest nails. She has 10ft 2in (309.8cm) of nail-age on her left hand and 9ft 7in (292.1cm) on her right hand. My first thoughts when I saw the photo was that I am pretty sure I have seen a lady with longer nails than this. So after a bit of googling I found Lee Redmond:

The thing with this type of record is that you have to actually still have the long nails to keep the title, so when Lee Redmond tragically lost her nails after a car accident in 2009, she also lost her record holder status.  She does still hold a Guiness World Record for longest fingernails (female) ever though. I really don't understand how you can do anything when your nails are that long, imagine how long it would take to paint them!?

So that completes today's post, it was a lot of fun to write and I hope it was also fun to read, please let me know what you think.


  1. OMG the LONNNG ones are GROSS!!! I think I could pull off Hello Kitty though :)

    1. Hehe, they freak me out a little too, I think credit has to given to them for the dedication they have though, they would take a lot to maintain. Imagine how long it would take to paint them? x
