People Are Sharing The Nails They Asked For Vs. The Nails They Got, And It's Sad But Funny

I'm literally crying over my nails right now...

A few months ago, TikTok user @kneelyknight went viral for expressing how upset she was after getting her nails done:


This was the worst experience I’ve ever had. #nails #help #foryou #foryoupage

The video has gained over 16 million views, and people who have experienced similar ~nail trauma~ are now sharing what they wanted their nails to look like vs. what they got. For example, user @giannacharles got a completely different color than what she asked for:

@lexiekent_ found herself in a situation where the pinks used didn't exactly match up to the pinks she envisioned:

User @magcoates walked out of the nail salon with a shorter-than-expected look:


why did i not only pay for this but also tip like $15 #fyp #foryou

And TikTok user @angeh wanted ombré nails, but they didn't turn out very ombré at all:


I cried. This is why I do my own nails now😭 #fyp #xyzbca #nails #littlethings #foryou

@sedonasellers got the right color, but there wasn't very much attention to detail going on:


these were supposed to be for a wedding i was going to..... i ended up chopping all my fingers off #greenscreen #lol #EatEmUp #nails #fails #whyme

And @mrs.melo's nail tech had a little trouble keeping things only on her nail:

But, hey, let's give these nail techs a break because...after all...THERE IS A PANDEMIC GOING ON (and nails also grow out)!!!
