I'm all for creativity .. but when it comes to nail art, there's a wide line between trendy and just straight up crazy. I get that nail art has practically taken over the world, one mani and pedi at a time, but even so, I still can't wrap my brain around some of the totally INSANE (not to mention ugly) designs that have been trending for the past year. I'm talking looks I'd wish I could just unsee. Check out the slideshow below for some of the craziest nail art ideas I've found. Warning: some of these nails will make you cringe.

I don’t EVER want to see caviar anywhere but on my plate. Honestly, I don’t see what’s so cool about having a food garnish all over my nails. I'd rather be cheap and throw on some cilantro if we're gonna go the food route.

This takes football fan to a whole different level. If someone sported nails like this to a Super Bowl party and reached over for some chip dip … well let’s just say I’d probably lose my appetite.

You can probably guess what these flared nails are meant to resemble. That’s right--Duck’s feet. Help me understand how this is even remotely flattering.

Ever since Beyonce put a photo on her Tumblr of a CRAZY manicure featuring nail art of her and Jay-Z’s faces everyone suddenly wanted to have a mani with either a celeb or their man’s face. I’m sorry, but this isn’t just insane, it borders on creepy.
