- Recently, Emma Jones claims to have visited a nail salon and asked for the service, but what she received instead was “mortifying.”

- Jones said she is getting her manicure fail fixed.
Heading to a nail salon is a fun way to pamper yourself. But, as with any beauty treatment, sometimes things can take a turn for the worse.
That’s exactly what Emma Jones claims to have happened, when she asked her nail technician for a “round manicure” during a recent salon visit.
Rather than a set of faux acrylic nails with rounded tips, Jones’ $60 manicure resulted in thick, bubble-like masses that covered her nails.
Jones’ aunt, who Jones said will be fixing her shocking manicure, shared a photo of her niece’s nails on Facebook that has since gone viral with over 15,000 shares.
In an interview with MamaMia, Jones said she wasn’t paying close enough attention and simply didn’t notice the manicurist’s mistake:
“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.”
Although it seems highly unlikely that one wouldn’t realize the error, Jones mentioned that her aunt who also specializes in nails offered to fix and recreate the popular style.
“I’ve had a couple of people say they’re going to fix them for free by [sic] my auntie offered to do them for free too so I’m booked in for Wednesday but she has filed them thinner for the time being until then,” Jones said.
We’re skeptical of whether her manicure fail really happened the way she said it did — but, just in case, we’ll be keeping a closer eye on our nails next time we get a manicure.
