These 16 Hilarious Nail Fails That Have Salons Rolling in Laughter!

So, you know how sometimes we try to do our nails ourselves but end up making a mess? Well, turns out that happens to a lot of people, even professionals make money fixing those mistakes. So, no need to feel bad about your not-so-perfect nail art skills! The cool thing is, these nail fails often turn into hilarious viral pictures that everyone online can share and have a good laugh.

You can learn what not to do by checking out these fails and avoid making the same mistakes. And hey, if you’re interested in opening a nail salon, there are even franchises you can join to make it easier.

So, what exactly makes a nail polish fail go viral?

  • Sloppy polish – Imagine going to an important business meeting all dressed up professionally, but then your nails are a complete disaster. Not a good look, right?

Top Nail Mistakes to Avoid

  • I can’t stress this enough – keeping your nails maintained is key. Don’t show off fancy nail art if your toes are covered in hair! Remember to groom regularly.
  • One common mistake is not prepping your nails properly. Painting over old, faded, or chipped polish may seem convenient, but it won’t lead to a polished look. Clean and oil-free nails are a must.
  • I know long nails can be attractive, but there’s a point where they become more of a problem than a beauty statement. Avoid unpleasant nail deformities by keeping them trimmed regularly.
  • When your nails break and start peeling, it’s a major nail fail! To prevent this, make sure to keep your nails hydrated and strong. Avoid biting them and incorporate iron-rich foods into your diet.

Tips for Nailing Success

Wow, those were some pretty scary nail fails! But don’t worry, whether you’re doing your nails at home or going to a professional nail salon, I’ve got some simple tips to help you achieve a polished and professional look:

  • Keep it natural – Just like choosing your makeup, your nail polish designs should be simple, elegant, and somewhat natural, especially for a professional setting.
  • I can’t stress enough how important it is to use good-quality brushes for polishing your nails. When you invest in brushes that are made with care, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in your nail art. Trust me, it’s worth every penny.
  • Moisturizing your nails is key to their health and appearance. By taking the time to soak and moisturize your nails and nail beds, you’ll prevent them from breaking and give your cuticles a nice, clean look.
  • Avoid those rough emery boards! They can be really harsh on your fingernails and cause serious damage. Instead, opt for a nail file with a smooth, fine texture. When using it, remember to file slowly and evenly in one direction. This will help reduce breakage and keep your nails intact.
  • Listen up! I gotta tell you something important. You know how people always say not to bite your nails? Well, there’s a good reason for that! When you bite and pick at your nails and the skin around them, it can cause some serious damage. Trust me, you don’t want that!
