Looking good is good business but it doesn't always come cheap. And sometimes, the price can be very high and damning too.
A video shared on Instagram by @saintavenue_ent1 has left social media users reacting with mixed feelings - some of who are cringing with pain - at the sight of the condition of a lady's nails after a trip to the salon.
The first part of the video sees the lady showing off her newly done nails which appear to involve artificial nails and acrylic.
However, the experience goes south when she is seen in the remaining part of the video with injured nails covered in gentian violet (GV), an antiseptic dye used to treat fungal infections of the skin.
