Woman shares gruesome pics showing what years of gel manicures have done to her nails

NO matter how lovely they look, we all know that gel manicures can wreak havoc on our nail beds.

Let’s be honest though, even that doesn’t stop us booking in for our monthly salon appointments… but now one beauty YouTuber has shared the terrifying effects shellac has had on her nails.

Australian gel manicure addict Tina Yong filmed the shocking video as part of her “Tinascope” series.

Having previously filmed videos where she examines her skin, eyes, and eyelashes under a microscope, Tina has now shed light on the damaging consequences “5+ years” of gel manicures can have on the nail beds.

From ordinary fluff and dirt to where the nails are slowly peeling away, Tina explained to her 2.4 million subscribers how her nails always “look scratched and thin” after removing her gel.

But this was more than just a case of battered nails…

Using a digital microscope to film the disgusting video, Tina identified where her “nails have been lifted and peeled off because of the gel polish”.”

She then likened the huge build-up of dead skin under her nail to “lots of icebergs” around her cuticles.

Unsurprisingly, there was also plenty of dirt and “little hairs” hiding under Tina’s fragile nails to the point where she had to acknowledge “oh my god, that’s so bad!”

But there wasn’t just a horrifying build-up of dead skin around Tina’s battered nails, the beauty vlogger also noticed that her love of gel manicures have also altered the colour of her nails.

Estimating to have worn gel nails religiously for the past five to six years, Tina noticed that her nails had now turned a distinct shade of light yellow after previously “always being off white.”

Tina’s up close and personal video has already been viewed over 200,000 times and one horrified follower has said she will “never put my fingers in my mouth again”.

One intrigued viewer added that she “can’t stop watching” even though the video is “SO GROSS.”

Warning her followers of the dangers of gel manicures, the online beauty guru said: “Usually, if you use normal polish, your nails won’t look this when you remove it. They will still look smooth.”

And if that hasn’t convinced us to swap our shellac habit for ordinary polish, we don’t know what will.
