Beauty trends have gone from shocking to just downright disgusting now.

We've had rainbow teeth, glitter pumpkin butts and even live ants trapped inside acrylic nails – but nothing quite prepared us for the snot manicure.

That's right, you read that correctly. Many of us might be struck down with a cold this season and will do everything in our power to avoid that awkward runny nose. But instead of seeing it as a seriously gross hindrance, one manicurist took inspiration.

Russian salon Nail Sunny has really outdone themselves this time with a manicure that actually seeps snot. The salon is known for its incredibly outlandish nail designs, so we shouldn't be too surprised that this was their next shocking tactic. But really, snot!? Who even thinks of these things…

The nail brand posted a bizarre step-by-step tutorial on how to create the look on their Instagram page. You know just in case you would rock snot nails (please, please don't).

Start off with a simple nude base colour for the nails and trim down a piece of rubber. Using a nail file, you'll need to sculpt this to make the bridge of the nose and then attach it to the nail. Paint the nose to blend it in with the nude colour and add a scattering of blackheads and pus-filled spots to give it a realistic touch. Because the snot isn't quite gross enough.

Finish by mixing various liquids to perfect your green, snot colour and inject into the nostrils. Now watch as the snot seeps from the faux nostrils. It's both dramatic and vomit-inducing. Of course, people had something to say about the weird fad.

Just how far will they go? A manicure that drips wee next?! We shudder to think.

In August, Nail Sunny got into trouble with a design that people on the internet thought was too far. The brand created a manicure that trapped live ants in the nail. The video also caught the attention of animal rights organisation PETA, who stated that the ants would eventually suffocate in the nail. However, the salon claimed they were alive and well, posting a follow-up video which showed the ants being released.
