We all know how it goes at the salon. You pick a colour, you choose a shape, you sit back and let the professionals do their thing.

Then leave feeling like a bad ass b*tch.


However, on occasion we might be a little disappointed with the results. Perhaps the wrong colour choice? Or maybe the pointy shape is a little too Cruella de Vil?

Well one woman had the ultimate nail disaster when she asked for round nails. Seems pretty simple, right?

NO. Just look at these. We are crying.

Really, what is going on here? We've never seen anything quite so weird.

Her aunt, Angela, decided this was too funny to pass up, and of course proceeded to post a photo on Facebook.

She captioned it: "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."

I think we can all agree that we would not be best pleased if we paid £35 for these. But you can't help but laugh TBH.

The victim of these hilarious creations is Emma, who told Mamamia she was 'mortified' by the results.

She 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."

Emma's aunt obviously found the whole thing totally hysterical, saying she 'couldn't believe her eyes'.

Angela said: "I burst out laughing and I asked I can get a pic.

"I honestly couldn't believe my eyes. Her comment made me laugh - she said "I asked for round, not f*cking circle."


Facebook users have gone absolutely mad over these, with 15k likes and over 10k shares. People can't quite believe what they're seeing.

One person wrote: "Good god hope mine are going to go better than that."

While another asked: "Why would you let them carry on?"

Some couldn't understand why she ended up paying for them. Although it was pointed out that "Some people are too shy to say anything she paid £35 for these."

We aren't sure we would pay for these after seeing the results.

Luckily for Emma, her aunt has sorted her out with some new nails.

Thank goodness for that.

We think the main thing to take away from this is ALWAYS pay attention when someone is doing your nails, ladies.

Alternatively, you can always scrap getting your nails done all together and try this festival make-up look instead?
