Just when you thought it was safe to go back into a nail salon, we offer you a story so full of horror that you may just decide never again to venture into one. We found a story from the UK about a woman who visited a nail salon to get a manicure. When she walked out, she could barely contain her dismay at what the technician had done to her fingernails. You are going to laugh out loud when you read this story.
Manchester woman Emma Jones recently visited a new local nail salon to get a manicure. After discussing her wishes with the technician, she sat back and relaxed. A lot.
When the manicure was over, jones looked down and saw the most absurd looking fake fingernails ever. Attached to her hands.
We assume that she ran out of the salon screaming bloody murder.
Luckily, her aunt Angela Blemmings is also a nail technician and was able to fix the damage. Jones headed right over to her salon where Blemmings decided to document the tragic affair on her social media feed.
Blemmings wrote “This is what happened to my client when she went into a different local nail bar without doing her research. I couldn’t believe my eyes so i had to get a picture. £35 she paid for these. They were acrylic overlay nails. [The technician] used a tip then applied the acrylic. When I removed them I noticed they hadn’t pushed back her cuticles and had gone over her cuticles with the acrylic, so I had to be very careful when I soaked them off. Her cuticles were very sore and irritated. These are the worst I have ever seen. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I’m usually so professional but I just couldn’t help burst out laughing. [Emma] said: ‘I asked for round not f***ing circles.’”
Explaining how the tragedy occurred Jones said “I was completely distracted at the salon because we were talking about my experiences in Turkey as I have just come back from a holiday so I headed out the salon and got in my car and thought what on earth has he done!
I was mortified so I headed to my cousin’s mum’s salon to have my eyebrows done and she was mortified as she is a nail technician herself.”
The Facebook post went viral with more than ten thousand shares and hundreds of comments, such as:
“Did she not notice what was going on after the first nail was done, thick or what?”- Captain Chaos
“Presumably this woman was asleep when this was being done otherwise she would have seen it and stopped it if it wasn’t what she wanted. Yet another idiot looking for their 15 seconds of fame”- Nigel Reynolds
“Was she under general anaesthetic?”- Delta
“Don’t do drugs kids.”- Jay
Perhaps the most cogent response was from an anonymous poster who said “A setup to promote the aunt’s salon. Massive fail because the new nails look awful too.”
