New nail trend: Duck Feet nails

We’ve Minx-ed our nails, experienced a reverse-French and had numerous designs from the ladies at WAH Nails, but we have to admit that we’re reluctant to trial the latest hot nail trend.

'Duck Feet' or flared nails are the latest manicure trend to emerge from the US, but the reaction to the look has been less than complimentary, with some nail technicians reportedly refusing to serve clients wishing to have it done.

As the name suggests, the flared finger and toe nail tips are inspired by the webbed feet of ducks (surely one of the worst beauty inspirations if ever there was one!?) and range in length and width - from a full flare to a more subtle widening.

Snooki from Jersey Shore has been spotted rocking a set, all it takes is for Lady Gaga to be papped sporting them and surely it's only a matter of time before the fashion pack follow suit?
