Is there anything more luxurious and pampering than getting a manicure and having a fresh set of nails? Some would say no.
However, just like with everything in life, there is a time and place for getting nails done and one mom struck a chord with the internet when she put a fresh set on her infant.
I Understand Wanting To Dress Your Baby Up
Babies are loud, sleep-depriving creatures who will throw up on you without warning and ruin your favorite shirt.
However, at least one thing about them is that they're cute and you get to dress them up in adorable little outfits sometimes.
However, One Woman Incited Rage In People Online
People were absolutely disgusted with one mother for the aesthetic choices she made for her baby after she posted a photo of the infant on Twitter.
They didn't hesitate to make their opinions known.
So What Was The Big Deal?
This one mom tweeted two photos showing how she puts a set of acrylic nails onto her baby's fingers.
While the craftsmanship of the nails is impressive, people were appalled by the fact it was a baby wearing them.
Some Thought It Was Way Too Adult
Sure, it's nice for an adult to go to the salon and get a fresh set of nails.
However, children really have no need for such things! Some people said that we should just let kids be kids.
Others Pointed To Safety Issues
It's true: those nails especially are really sharp and a baby doesn't know better than to rub their face.
It really could be hazardous and lead to the baby having a severe eye injury.
Some Wanted To Point Out That Children Aren't Toys
It's nice to be able to dress up your child in cute outfits, but it's important to remember that a baby isn't a doll.
It's more important to keep the child safe and healthy rather than making it cute for your own liking.
I Guess Parents Are Allowed To Make Their Own Decisions
When it comes down to it, there really isn't a way to control what decisions a parent makes for their own child.
Sure, I would never put long nails onto my own child, but to each their own.
Some Others Were Really Into The Idea Though
Not everyone was appalled by the nails.
Some thought that the nails looked incredible and even went as far as to say that they want the same look for their own infant.
The Mom Didn't Really Budge
Despite all the backlash she received for the tweet, the mom stood by her decision.
She points out that, despite all the concerns people have raised, there hadn't yet been a problem.
The Woman Herself Is A Nail Technician
It's not like she did it without care: the mom herself is a nail technician with a lot of experience.
It wasn't difficult or dangerous for her to actually put the nails onto her child.
