That is so 2015.

1. Aquarium Nails

Love this nails

A video posted by Tony's Nails (@tonysnail) on

While this trend isn't new, the idea of objects floating in liquid on your tips shook up social media in 2015. Instead of an aquarium on your nails, make it a snow globe for a festive touch.

2. Bubble Nails

Also known as hump nails, this is another nail trend that isn't new but for whatever reason bubbled to the surface in 2015.

3. Russian Cathedral Nails

These nails light up your life with the help of a smartphone.

5. Egyptology Nails

Whether you prefer long, dangling bits of jewelry, or a few embedded links, these nails are off the chain.

11. Sea Glass Nails

As sea-n on our August cover.

12. Cinderella Nails

<p><a href="">@pinknailsny</a></p>

With a live-action movie, lacquer line, and nail art contest, these glass nails fit just right.

13. Marsala Nails

<p><a href="">@malishka702nails</a></p>

Pantone's Color of the Year for 2015 had us guzzling down wine-soaked nails.

14. Goat Nails

<p><a href="">@nailguytv</a></p>

2015 was also the Year of the Goat, so artists took the nail by the horns when creating Lunar New Year nail art. 

15. Pearl

<p><a href="">@glonailbar</a></p>

Again, not exactly a new trend, but we are happy to see these classic embellishments make a comeback
