Our Monday Gift To You: The Most Absurd Nail Art We Have Ever Seen

Captain Obvious statement of the day: We love us some nail art. We know everyone else's fascination with it seems to be waning, but we can't help ourselves — we respect the artistry and "wow" factor behind a really well-done design. However, our love of decked-out digits is not unconditional.
We've tried our fair share of nail-art experiments, but after engaging in some mani-focused Internet browsing, we've come across some designs we're convinced should never be tried again by anyone, anywhere. Looking at these cartoon Beatles and 3-D Olympic rings tips, all we could do was stare agog and have a serious "WTF were they thinking?" moment.
We couldn't not share these manicure horror stories with you, so buckle your seat belts, ladies, because some of these DIYs are not for the faint of heart.
All we ask in exchange for this Monday-morning treat? That you share your thoughts below — because we are definitely dying to hear your reactions. And hey, if any of you are down to defend these fingers, we're here to hear your opening arguments.
