Fidget spinner nail art signals the peak of the toy craze

It’s official: Fidget spinners have taken over the nation.

They are being called the “hula hoop for Generation Z” and “Saturday Night Live” even did a hilarious skit on the wildly-popular toy. Internet searches of the term have more than doubled in the last 30 days, and stores are having trouble keeping up with the demand.

And, now, the fidget craze has reached maximum velocity, folks. The toy is now showing up in the beauty industry. Well, in nail art, to be exact.

Yes, nail art.

Blogger and beauty expert Natasha Lee and her DIY “fidget spinner nail art” are mesmerizing the internet. A Facebook video featuring her spinner-laden nails has been watched over 9.8 million times (and counting) since she posted in on May 20, and when you see the clip, you will understand why.

Lee gives step-by-step instructions that—though easy to follow—would likely still prove challenging for amateur nail artists to execute.

Now, if fidget spinners aren’t your thing (there is, after all, a backlash from fidget spinners haters out there) you can still use YouTube to create awe-inspiring nail art for the summer.

This unicorn chrome (unichrome!) nail art, for example, is pretty much the most beautiful thing I have ever seen:

If you want something a little more understated but still drop-dead gorgeous, consider nail art that actually incorporates real flowers into the mix:


And here I am, feeling proud of myself for managing to keep my basic pink polish un-chipped for a few days.

What do you think of this insane new nail art? Would you paint a fidget spinner on your nails? Do you wish you could back to the days where you didn’t even know what a fidget spinner was?
