If there's one thing Twitter is always good for, it's providing us with the internet's GIF-laden hot takes on, well, everything. And though Twitter is rarely in consensus, users have come together this holiday season to share a collective "WTF?" over a unique furry nail nail inspiration tweet from beauty blogger @BeauTuts.
The blogger's tweet featured a set of furry green nails, a nod to the furry nail trend that's been making the rounds this year. This particular image inspired a rush of responses — some people are surprised furry nails are even a thing.
Though we’re probably safe from furry nails replacing our beloved chrome as 2016’s must-have manicure, the look has already broken into the fashion world. Libertine featured faux fur nails in its spring/summer show, and according to Cosmopolitan, the show's style director, Jan Arnold, wanted to use the pink puffs to give the model an eye-catching "split-style" manicure, since the faux fur nails were paired with jewels.
"Don't match your nails, contrast them," Arnold told Cosmo. "Mix the colors, mix the textures."
The forest-green to light-moss-green ombré pom faux fur nails @BeauTuts shared certainly bring both texture and color. But while the fashion accoutrements may have been intended as a cute (and functionally warm!) Christmas must-have, or to remind a wearer of tranquil wandering among winter trees, Twitter users can only see one thing: Christmas's mortal enemy, the perpetually angry and furry-fingered Grinch.
And their responses are comedy gold.

Whether you like them or not, you have to admit these furry green nails obviously have the power to bring out the Grinch in all of us.
