Does This Trend... Succ?

I wish I could go inside the heads of those who come up with beauty trends. What triggers the ideas? What inspires them? Do they spend many minutes on the toilet daydreaming? Are their water and power bills massive due to hours spent thinking in the shower? Or is it more of a case that a little fairy comes along and plants an idea, that then sprouts into fruition.

I may have just overdone it with the puns. 

So recently I got wind of a new trend popping up on the 'gram. Succulent nails. And then I saw succulent hair. And it seems succulents are hot right now. Which amuses me since they do enjoy a spot of sun. 

I'm not going to beat about the bush... I'm a touch conflicted about the succulent nails.


I find them pretty, because they're plants and I do enjoy a good succulent, but I keep thinking about how annoying they'd be to type with. And what if you got an itchy back and you needed a good scratch - would they fall off? Or would they be too soft to get into that irritating itch? Or would they be the perfect back scratchers ever?


So I'm on the no side of the fence, but then I see the above picture and I swoon a little. Those colours are divine. And it's like a garden on your nails. My inner pixie wants to prance about, showing them off to anyone and everyone. How talented is arozona that she can make that happen. I wouldn't even know where to begin.


Then I see this look and well, I'm in. It's a botanical masterpiece. Not that I could create the look. I'm too ridiculously unartistic for that. But I'd pay someone to.

So succulent nails get the yeah/nah/maybe/yeah from me... but succulent hair? For this conservative soul who thought putting blonde streaks into her brunette hair was a big deal, it's a no, but I can appreciate the botanical beauty.


I also love the way it can done in a soft and subtle manner or in a bold and bright style.


Of course, if colouring your hair in those shades isn't your cup of tea you could just shove a succulent in your mop and rock the trend that way.


So, what say you my beauties? Are you a fan of the succulent style? Would you step out with succulent nails? Will you be hitting up your hairstylist for a colour reminiscent of those pretty little plants? Or will you, like me, look on, admire, but not branch out... 

Chat away!

The hair styles are cool but I'm not a fan of the nails

Yeeeaahhh I'm with you Kellie. I wish I knew what these 'trend setters' were thinking at the time lol This one is no exception. It doesn't do it for me at all when it comes to the garden nails and the succulents in the hair BUT the polish and colours are right up my alley.

I think it looks pretty cool. Couldn't personally pull it off myself but its really cool to look at.

The nails look adorable, but also very very fragile! So that's a no for me!

I love the hair, not a fan of the nails though lol. A little to quirky for my liking

umm pass (although no judgement cos my recently updated hair colour has faded out to similar tones as livicido only in reverse lol)

I really believe plants belong in the garden or a pot, not our nails.

Not for me....pretty pastel hair colours though

I love it!

I think it's really pretty but not a practical trend. I will not be trying it.

I love succulents and have over 30 varieties in my garden. I think I'm going to leave them there as I don't feel planting them on my fingertips is the most practical thing to do.

Such a cute article!! I love the colours and the Okashi nail art is divine... but that's about it I'm afraid.

8th September, 2017

No. I'm not. It's just weird I reckon.

I do like minature plants and gardens and so I do like the mini succulents but not as nails. The colored hair is gorgeous and braided do. I don't think I'll be succlenting.

I've seen the living garden nails before and I'm not sure I even like them for photo value. I do like the print manicure and the hair colours - because aqua and turquoise are always beautiful colours.
