WHEN it comes to nail art, customers can choose from a wide selection of intricate designs.
From floral patterns to diamond-encrusted tips, the options really are endless.

So you’d think that a simple French-manicure inspired design would be pretty straight-forward.
Well, think again!
Eileen, who is from the US, took to TikTok and shared a snap of the nail inspo she showed her manicurist.
But what she got was a far cry away from the cute pastel-coloured tips she asked for.
Instead, Eileen was left with ridiculous thick green tips and was left with little choice but to go home, file them down and repaint them.
And many of her social media followers were left stunned by the before and after snaps of the shocking nail fail.
“Oh no! What happened?!!!” asked one.
A second commented: “Oh noooo! Sorry this happened to you
Not so close,” while a third penned: “Who on earth think it’s okay to have clients leave their salon with that sort of mess on their nails?”
A fourth wrote: “Omg that’s nothing like what you wanted how can they mess up so bad.”
Another shocked social media user added: “Oh goodness. I’ve had similar troubles trying to get nails done abroad lol.”
Elsewhere, a further quipped: “Naaaahhh!! Must be a joke,” to which Eileen responded: “I wish!”
However, others blamed Eileen for not telling the nail technician that she wasn’t happy with the finished result.
“Sorry. I would not let my nail tech move on till I’m satisfied. I’m paying for it so they need to be done to my liking,” noted one.
A second added: “Well if you don’t say anything then don’t cry around.”
