Rad Or Bad: Are Outlined Nails Too High-Maintenance?

From neon nails as bright as solar flares to fingers that belong in the Museum of Modern Art, we dig getting creative with our digits. We usually look at all new nail trends as an opportunity to bust out our nail art supplies, but — surprise! — we've finally come across a new trend that we didn't have an immediately positive reaction to: the outlined nail.
While we like to think that we've refined our techniques over the years, we're pretty sure that achieving this look would require a license in nail-art wizardry. And the fact that it draws such attention to your cuticles, and would only last for a day before growing out or chipping...we can't decide if this minimalist look is cool or far too annoyingly high maintenance. What do you say?
