New trend: People removing their own fingernails

Jun 22, 2023, 7:07 PM

A bizarre new trend has emerged among the brave and masochistic. People are now removing their fingernails for the sake of fashion. Yes, you read that right. Fingernail removal has become a hot new trend that's sweeping the nation, and fashion-forward social media influencers are at the forefront of the movement.

According to some avid fans of the trend, it all started when one influencer accidentally clipped off a nail too short and decided to remove it entirely. From there, it quickly gained popularity as others followed suit. Now, some people are even removing all ten fingernails for maximum visual impact.

But why would someone willingly put themselves through such immense pain? According to those who have embraced the trend, the look of shock and horror on the faces of those around them is worth any discomfort.

"I love the look of disgust on people's faces when they see my nail-less fingers," said one enthusiast. "It's just so edgy and unconventional. Plus, it saves me money on manicures."

Some have even taken to Instagram to show off their newly nail-less fingers, with hashtags such as #FingernailFree and #BareNailsAreBeautiful.

As you can imagine, the trend has not been well-received by the medical community. Doctors are warning that removing fingernails is extremely dangerous and can result in permanent damage to the nail bed, as well as an increased risk of infection.

But these warnings have done little to deter the most devoted fans of the trend. In fact, some are even taking it a step further and removing their toenails as well. These hardcore nail-less enthusiasts are calling themselves "smoothies," and they've started a secret society where the only rule is that members must remove all of their nails.

While it's impossible to predict the future of this twisted and dangerous trend, one thing is for sure: it's not going away anytime soon. So the next time you see someone with bare nails, don't assume they just got back from the salon. They just might be part of the fingernail removal trend that's sweeping the nation.
