A Mother Is Strongly Criticized After GiVing Her BaBy A Manicure
A social media user, whose location is unknown, came under fire after sharing a snap on Facebook showing a woman’s thumb gripping a baby’s tiny hand. The infant appears to have had a manicure, with lengthy fake nails attached.
Posting the image, which has since gone viral on Twitter, the woman boasted: ‘I can do your babies nails…cheap rates.’
Some social media users were quick to point out the dangers of the child’s sharp nails, with one commenting: ‘Baby nails are sharp enough as is, I can’t imagine equipping my daughter with claws. Hard pass.’
The photos show a woman holding a newborn’s hand, who appears to have been given several different manicures, with lengthy fake nails attached to their tiny hands.
The images show the little girl wearing false nails on each of her tiny fingers in three different styles.
In one image, they can be seen with pointed sharp talon-like nails, while in another, the child appears to have been given a more rounded edge.
The mother showed off her skills at perfecting the stiletto shape, a square and an oval edge.
The strange advert has since been shared on Reddit where it has prompted outrage from fellow parents pointing out how dangerous the trend could be.
The post received huge backlash as netizens reacted with concern and anger over the dangerous act.
One user pointed out one is supposed to keep the baby’s nails short so they don’t hurt themselves, calling it ‘ᴛʀᴀsʜʏ and sᴛᴜᴘɪᴅ’.
Another user was quick to point how babes often poke themselves in the eyes or face and how the sharp nails could harm the baby further.
Another wrote: ‘This is highly dangerous. Babies often times will poke themselves in the eyes or face and even without nails they’ll leave scratch marks. This is straight up sᴛᴜᴘɪᴅ and will only harm the baby further.
In other pictures, the manicurist showed off her skills by giving several different manicures and nail arts to the bay’s tiny hands. In the images, little girls’ hands are wearing fake nails in each finger in different styles.
However some social media users suggested the nails had ‘all been photoshopped on’.
It’s not the first time this strange trend has gone viral, with an image showing a child with sharpened nails hitting the headlines in December.
At the time, some social media users were quick to point out the dangers of the child’s sharp nails.
‘Baby nails are sharp enough as it is, those things would tear your face right up,’ one person said.
‘An itchy eye could result in permanent blindness,’ added another.
