When it comes to bizarre nail trends, we thought we had seen it all: Pom pom nails. Scorpion nails. Polish mountain.

Just when we finally felt safe from the nail absurdities, somebody awoke a whole new beast — the monster manicure.

The monster manicure — or "werewolf nails" — first appeared on the runway last February at the Libertine fall/winter 2016 show.

*shudders* 

For months we tried to block those terrifying talons from our minds, but the fur-ocious nails recently made a comeback for Libertine's spring/summer 2017 collection.

Jan Arnold, style director and co-founder of CND nail polish, created the look. 

And judging by Instagram, it looks like the monster manicure has become a full-blown trend.

Manicurists are covering the nail beds in faux fur to achieve that "fierce beast" look.

They simply adhere the fluff to each nail using a high-gloss top coat.

Cue the howling.

Please excuse me as I cry real tears.

Because NOPE.

I think I'll just stick to these fuzzy gloves whenever I need my fur fix.

It's like having a monster mani without the maintenance. Because seriously, how do you even wipe with those furry claws?

Would *you* rock the monster manicure?
