We always thought the hardest part of the manicure process was picking your nail color. You walk into the salon telling yourself to pick a nude color because the last time you went red you hated it and there's no way you're going to let yourself make the same mistake again.
But then you see the wall of colored nail polishes and you start to panic that your nail technician will think you're a boring person for picking nude. You want her to know that you're actually really fun, so before you know it you're having an out of body experience, reaching for a neon green bottle.
An hour and 300 pesos later, you're back at home reaching for the nail polish remover.
But now that we've finally solved the eternal salon nail color dilemma, the only thing you really have to consider is what shape you want your nails filed...easy right?
Well, not for Emma Jones that is. See, when Emma went for her manicure she specifically asked for round nails. The only problem is that her nail technician took the request quite literally...
Emma explained to MamaMia that she was so busy chatting to her technician that she didn't even realize her nails until after she left the salon:
"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."
Luckily, Emma won't be left with round nails for much longer as she is already booked in to get them fixed.
Note to self, never ask for round nails without a set of very specific instructions.
