I never bother getting manicures because I’ll inevitably mess them up 20 minutes later on something totally innocuous, like a cupcake. (No really, true story.) But some women get super serious about their fake nails. Apparently, this includes nail technicians, as demonstrated this week when a Washington State manicurist allegedly attempted to rip off a 13-year-old girl’s pumpkin-colored fake nails when the girl was bummed on the design and tried to bail without paying. Of course, when the police showed up, the girl’s mom coughed up $10, even though the manicurist asked for $30. Now this manicurist might be facing misdemeanor assault charges.
All I have to say is, really, pumpkin-colored nails? Of course she didn’t like how they looked in the end. Also, are 13-year-old girls really getting fake nails? Aren’t teenage girls intimidating enough? If I learned anything from puberty, it’s that you don’t mess with mean girls…especially ones with sharp talons. [Dayton Daily News]
