Amelia Perrin is a 20-year-old beauty blogger who is gaining buzz for posting an honest look at just how much damage acrylic nails can cause. According to the Daily Mail, Perrin’s nails got so bad after taking off her acrylic nails that she couldn’t even zip up her jeans due to the pain of her ripped-off nails exposing much of her nail bed. Perrin admitted on Twitter that the raw nerves exposed beneath her nails meant Amelia couldn’t even take a shower because of the pain caused by the hot water. Perrin wrote that she was pretty sure she left some shampoo in her hair because she couldn’t stand the pain of trying to wash out her hair any longer.
Perrin has had her acrylic nails done by professionals for six years — causing damage and an addiction that makes Amelia feel put together when they look nice. However, the below graphic photo shows just how bad the real nails beneath the fake acrylic nails can become when the acrylic nails aren’t removed correctly — and if the acrylic nails are worn too often without giving the real nails a chance to breathe underneath.
