Pimple nail art? Really?

Pimple nail art? Really?

2017 has arguably been one of the strangest years in recent history. From Donald Trump as president to male rompers, we’re getting all the WTF vibes from 2017. To add to the mayhem, I give you pimple nail art. And yes, you read that right.

Pimples, pimples, pimples

One of the strange trends of 2017 was Dr. Pimple Popper, which took the internet by storm. For those that get a sense of satisfaction watching puss ooze out of a large pimple or cyst, these videos will be like Christmas morning for you. For those (normal) people that find even the thought of watching a pimple being popped disgusting, you might be surprised at how satisfying these videos can be.

With over 67,800 followers on Twitter, 21,200 followers on Instagram, and three million followers on YouTube, Dr. Pimple Popper has tapped into a strange, strange niche. If you’ve got a zit that just won’t quit, you can find Dr. Pimple Popper, aka Dermatologist Sandra Lee, in sunny Los Angeles.

The next logical step, nail art

How people went from watching pimple videos on the internet to painting pimple nails, I will never understand, but it happened. We might as well just accept it. If you haven’t already, take a look for yourself.

There you have it, 2017 in all its newfound glory. The fact that the video begins with a previously constructed fidget spinner nail just makes this entire video that much more 2017. Released on October 28th by award-winning nail professional Natasha Lee, the video already has over 199,000 views in only one week.

How you can achieve the look

If a pimple manicure is everything you’ve been looking for (ew), you’re in luck, because the process actually looks pretty straightforward. The puss itself is a dollop of Burt’s Bees Beeswax hand cream. After you’ve created a small mound on your nail, you just need to apply enough coats of beige polish over top to completely cover the cream. Decorate to your desired pimple aesthetic and voila. A perfectly disgusting pimple nail for anyone who compulsively needs to pop, squeeze, and pinch any and all blemishes.

Goodbye 2017 and pimple nail art

Thankfully, the new year is only a month and a half away. We hope that there will be no pimple nails gracing the new year and that 2018 can at least try to be a little more normal than its predecessor.
