Molly-Mae Hague was left with a bloodied hand after nearly ripping off her own nail while attempting to take of her acrylics.
The Love Island star decided to give herself a little at-home beauty hack, given that nail salons have been forced to close while England is currently in national lockdown.
As a result, people have been turning to DIY hacks to give their nails a little TLC and remove unwanted polish, gel or even acrylic.
It can be done by soaking your nails in acetone-free nail polish remover for a lengthy amount of time to soften the acrylic, so then it can be peeled away from the nail.
However, it looks like Molly’s attempt didn’t exactly go to plan and she was left having to plaster over one of her nails, after (accidentally) nearly ripping it off.
Taking to Instagram, Molly shared a snap of her injured nail and hinted at just how much pain she was in, as blood could be seen running down her finger.
She captioned her post: ‘That’s enough nail DIY for one day. If you know the pain… you know.’
In another snap, the reality star was seen with a plaster over her nail and joked that her boyfriend Tommy Fury had taken her injury a little too literally.
‘Tommy came running in with a plaster and Nurofen. I think he thought I severed my hand off,’ she teased.
Molly and Tommy have been dating for over a year now, after first meeting on Love Island in 2019 and Tommy asking fellow islander Molly to be his girlfriend while they were in the villa.
The pair finished in second place on the show to eventual winners (and now exes) Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea and are the only surviving couple for their series.
Since the show, Molly and Tommy have moved in together and they’re often seen talking about marriage and babies together.
Prior to Love Island, Molly had been working as a social media influencer, after initially wanting to be a model when she was younger.
She recently told fans she was still ‘traumatised’ over her first meeting with a modelling scout, who ended up rejecting her because she didn’t like Molly’s legs.
‘She got me to stand up in front of her and some other people and do like a little twirl in like all black clothing and no make-up. She literally took one look at me and was like, “Yeah, no. Sorry, I made a mistake, you’re not the right shape to be a model,” and I literally was traumatised,’ Molly recalled.
She continued: ‘I just had to tell that story because whenever anyone talks about modelling, I just think of that day off work, getting on the train and being so excited, and that woman just shutting me down like that.
‘It was so, so, so bad and if anyone watching this has ever had that happen before, screw that person. The modelling industry is so harsh and so cut-throat, yeah not nice.’
