Cruel & Crazy: Live Ant Manicures Are The Latest Bizarre Beauty Trend

(ANIMAL CRUELTY) Sunny Nails, a Moscow-based nail salon, is under fire for using live ants to adorn fingertips. The company recently posted a how-to video on Instagram that's gone viral, demonstrating the long acrylic nails being applied before another layer is added, creating a vessel where an ant is then picked up by tweezers and shoved into the small opening.

Regardless, most can agree the salon has taken nail art too far and we need to draw the line somewhere. Get ready to shake your head in disbelief and continue reading below for more on this deliberately cruel and bizarre beauty trend. -- Global Animal
