Beauty trends have taken the world by storm, especially thanks to the internet. Good, bad, weird or even confusing, they are everywhere! Instagram in 2018 was all about weird trends, thanks to makeup artists competing for creating the most amusing looks. Brows took center stage when it came to creating looks; Halo Brows, Rainbow Brows, Christmas Brows - you name it and we saw it happen. But it was not all about brows, we saw some weird glitter body trends and nail trends were not too far behind either!

If you are experimental enough to try these looks or even check them out, we have curated a list of all the weird trends that we saw all over Instagram in 2018! These looks can be amusing, weird, adventurous or even full of horror! We warned you...

Halloween nail art just got a bit creepier with Hairy Nails. We get it, it's "art", but why? 

2. Fish-Tail Brows

While we love the concept of something new and unique, we have a question, "why would you do this to us?" 

3. Halo Brow

Heavenly or weird? We will let you decide about this one.

Happy Swirly Saturday!

We understand and are in awe at the effort that went into this nail art but does it not look like pure horror?

5. Yellow Blush

Sorry, but there's just one word that comes to mind after seeing this - jaundice!  

6. Fish Scale Hair/ Mermaid Hair

When done with the right colors that suit your skin tone, we don't think it is as bad a beauty trend as it may sound like. 

7. Tiger Brows

This trend made headlines when beauty guru, Huda Kattan decided to sport it. But we still can't get over why she would in the first place!

8. Garden Brows

The look is quite unique and heavenly, to be honest, but we wonder where can we ever wear it?

9. Glitter Face

How we love everything that has glitter! We were very excited when we heard of this trend and the end results do look stunning but we highly doubt the wearability of this one.

10. Sushi Nails

Sushi for lunch? Anytime! But Sushi for nails? We'll have to pass.

11. Tooth Nails

While we have seen many versions of this one, we always wonder what made them try this on their nails!

12. Chain Eyes

One question - won't the chain's constant movement when you blink be pretty damn annoying?!

13. Rainbow Brows

We always appreciate the offbeat looks that our favorite beauty blogger, Nikkie Tutorials comes up with and this one is no different. 

14. Tampon Nails

While we are all for feminism, tampon nails just don't sound right at all. 

15. Flower Vase Hair

Flowers can be soothing for sore eyes but we cannot say the same about this flower vase hairstyle.

16. Crown Brows

Yet another brow trend that struck in 2018 was crown brows. Glitter or non-glitter, we are not big fans of this one.

17. Nose Hair Extensions

This actually looks even worse than it sounds!

18. Penis Eyeliner

We wonder who came up with this and WHYYY? 

19. Glitter Boobs

Music festivals got all the more interesting in 2018 with these Glitter boobs. Impractical and haunting, don't you think?

20. Christmas Tree Brows

While Christmas tree brows sound festive and look the part, we sure think they are impractical!
