Nail polish mountains are the most ~*mesmerising*~ trend to take over Instagram

There are no words.

You know that feeling when you’re up to painting coat #3 of nail polish and your fingers become kinda heavy? Welp, try multiplying that by 93. Seriously, ‘cause that’s a legitimate feeling that some people out there are experiencing RN.

It seems that after nail artist Cristine posted a (now viral) video on Youtube of her painting 116 coats of nail polish on her fingers last month, the beauty buffs of insta have gone into overdrive trying to recreate the perfect #polishmountain.

And WOAH. We’re talking next-level mani porn, people.

As horrifying as they look, we can’t help but feel hella impressed with the patience and precision it must take to build a mountain. One user, @ane_li, even claims to have reached 280 coats of polish. For reals.

But don’t take our word for it – watch the vids (more below) and prepare to be overwhelmed.
