Warning: This molar nail art may haunt your dreams

Instagram, Nail Sunny

Nail art has become astonishingly intricate in recent years, with trends like quartz nails, half-moon nails, back-to-school nails, kaleidoscope nails and holiday nails (for all sorts of holidays) taking over Instagram.

Now, however, nail art has gone to the next level with . . . molar nails.

Yes, that’s right: nails that look like your back teeth.


How realistic does that look?! Even the Tooth Fairy herself would be tricked by those chompers.

This creepy-cool nail art comes to us from Nail Sunny, a Moscow-based nail salon which is known worldwide for its nail art. Katy Perry herself is a fan, so these artists must know their stuff because Perry doesn’t play when it comes to her personal style.

Nail Sunny might be newsworthy right now for molar nail art, but this isn’t the first time this nail salon has pushed the envelope. In February, Nail Sunny shocked (and even horrified) some people when it debuted nail art based on Kylie Jenner’s baby announcement photo.

Here is Kylie’s original photo and inspiration for the nail art:


And now brace yourself for Nail Sunny’s version:


You don’t know whether to laugh, cry or throw up . . . proof that this truly must be art!

As for the molar nails, so far this trend does not seem to have spread beyond Nail Sunny, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see an edgy celeb like Rihanna or Lady Gaga rocking this manicure sometime soon!


Say cheese!
