Alina Marie Reyes is a 19-year-old from Riverside, California, who is looking to enter the makeup industry.

A week ago Alina was talking with co-workers at a pizza shop and noticed that the toppings of a nearby pizza matched her nails.

"I decided to joke around and take 'aesthetically pleasing' photos of my nails; without realising, my milkshake also matched my nails," she told BuzzFeed News.

Soon, Alina's workmates were telling her to take photos and post them on Twitter. Which brings us to this:

So... I got a new set today and this was the outcome

The hand in shot is Alina's, decorated with lovely pink nail polish and, yes, she is holding three slices of ham.

"I posted these photos and tweeted them as a joke," said Alina. "Suddenly it escalated to hundreds of retweets within the first hour... Yesterday I began getting tagged in comments all over my social media."

Then came the questions - mostly about the ham.

Alina said she found the ham at work and noticed it matched her nails. She was unable to confirm the number of slices used in her photo.

I was in the store just minding my own business shopping for tampons and I hear "HAM NAILS" wow.
