I’m a nail technician – the ‘tacky’ designs I hate & acrylic fans might be triggered by my choices

STILETTO, almond, or square – whatever your shape of choice, nails have evolved, giving people more self-expression than ever.

Some people, though, aren't fond of the new trends that come with these advancements.

A Florida-based nail technician who goes by Reesha shared her hot takes on nails that she isn't a fan of, and many of them feature acrylics.


'Kawaii' translates to 'cute' in Japanese.

Despite the positive connotation, kawaii nails were cited as the first nail trend that the nail technician was unimpressed by.

These nails are characterized by the inclusion of cartoon characters like Hello Kitty, Sailor Moon, and Minnie Mouse, 3D embellishments including hearts, stars, and teddy bears, and the use of traditionally girly colors like pink.

And despite their popularity, these gaudy nails are certainly not for everyone.


Money nails also got the boot by the nail expert.

Money nails are true to the name, as the nails incorporate images of dollar bills with sparkly silver or gold accents.

Some people use these nails to promote prosperity.

It's not clear where the trend came from, but rapper Lil' Kim sported some iconic money nails in the '90s, which have been replicated and were featured at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.


Also considered tacky by the nail artist, junk nails include multiple colors and are similar to kawaii nails as they also include flashy 3D embellishments.

Anything from beads to rhinestones and pearls could be in the mix.

A bit more versatile than kawaii nails, they include many different colors.


Duck nails are characterized by their shape. A Y2K nail trend that has taken over TikTok, these nails have significantly wide, flared tips. The name comes from the fact that they could be compared to a duck's foot.

They can be considered the opposite of coffin nails, which feature much more narrowed tips.

Though they seem to be a crowd-pleaser for the target demographic, it's not every day that you come across them, and the oddness may contribute to why some people aren't fond of them.
