Every woman knows that treating yourself to a manicure is the ultimate self-care experience. After a long day, there’s nothing quite like having someone massage your hands and paint your nails for you. We always leave the nail salon feeling and looking amazing—right? Well, it turns out not all women leave the salon feeling and looking their best. Recently, Twitter account @TaiAlexandria took to the platform to bestow upon us a nail version of “Expectation vs. Reality,” and brace yourselves—it’s bad.
She first shared her own “what you wanted vs. what you got” nail catastrophe—which, to be perfectly honest, looks like a dream compared to some of the responses her viral tweet prompted.

Some of these nail techs out here are really out to ruin lives and waste money.
Honestly—what was she thinking?
Who paid for this?
It’s hard to say which is more hysterical: the photos of the failed nail jobs, or the comments underneath them.
Let this be a lesson to you always: once you see that first nail all botched and bungled, DON’T LET THEM FINISH THEIR OTHER NINE.
