Just when we thought bubble nails were taking over the nail art world, we learned about this new manicure trend: aquarium nails.

Now, the name isn't quite as literal as some may think -- there are no fish involved (at least, not yet).

And while aquarium nails aren't exactly new, they've recently gained more traction after a video from Tony's Nails in Wichita Falls, Texas, made rounds on Facebook. So far, it has been viewed almost 25 million times on Vietnamese talk show 2! Idol's Facebook page.
