Nail Art False Assumption

So I was browsing the net and I came across this little blurb:

Fingernails Faux Pas #2: Nail Art I sincerely hope no one orders a hit on me for saying this, but nail art is tacky. A painted flower on one big toe is cute because it's dainty and unexpected, but ten fingers decorated in swiggles, lightening bolts or glued-on cubic zirconias are wrong.

This isn't the first time I've heard someone say "nail art is tacky." Truth is, yeah, it can be! But it doesn't need to be. Just like a couch, a lamp, a purse, a shirt... they all have the potential of being called the t word. By picking the right colors and designs, then the "tackiness" can be avoided. You don't have to have a tacky flower on your big toe nor have a bunch of lightening bolts done like a 1st grader on your fingers. That's not nail art, that's nail disaster! When your swiggles are done right or when your glued-on cubic zirconias are used correctly, that becomes nail art.

Nail Disaster

I don't own any of these pictures. I just simply googled them for comparison. You see the difference?
