Duck nails are having a moment, and the internet has mixed feelings
"Duck nails" are popping up all over social media and many people find them both beautiful and bizarre.
The fanned-out trendy nail shape, which resembles the shape of webbed duck feet, has been seen everywhere from Instagram to TikTok and is growing in popularity.
Many noticed the look of rapper Danielle Bregoli, better known as Bhad Bhabie's TikTok page, which featured pink duck nails along with cherry nail art, as well as a French manicure version of the look.
"I always thought duck nails were so cute they remind me of the early 2000s," she wrote of a video showing her manicure.
