    This Korean Beauty Brand Has Apologised After People Accused It Of Making A Hand Appear Black

    "Is that hand wearing blackface..."

    South Korean beauty brand Stylenanda's makeup line 3CE has a nail polish range called "layering nail lacquer".

    These photos of the soft orange colour have been called out by people online because one of the hands in the pictures had apparently been made to appear darker.

    The palm looked particularly strange. The reason it's strange is because the palm is black, and that's not a thing that usually occurs in real life.

    So, naturally, people were suspicious.

    I think they just colored a pale hand & made it brown. That's why the brown hand's palm is also brown. & that's why that one pinky that's linked through the pale hand is light even tho it's attached to the brown hand. All this bad editing when they coulda just got a Black person https://t.co/cNyRQ2tCny

    Now, the webpage which hosted the images has been taken down.

    Some photos still appear to be on Stylenanda's Facebook pages, though.
