Lucy Davenport revealed that she was off on holiday and wanted to treat herself for the occasion, with a trip to the nail salon.

Lucy had asked the nail technician for a glamorous French manicure – something very pretty and elegant.

She posted a video to her TikTok account with the caption ‘#throwback to my gorg holiday nails’, showing a comparison between the nails that she wanted and the nails that she got. 

Lucy was horrified when she looked at her finished acrylic nails and saw that they were far from what she had asked for. 

Lucy’s nails were not pretty and dainty like she asked for, but instead resembled Drumstick Squashie sweets. 

And to make matters worse, although Lucy hated her nails, she felt too awkward to say anything to the nail artist, so paid and left. 


Lucy’s video has clearly got numerous people in hysterics as it has racked up 74.7k views.

It has 1,815 likes, 66 comments and 170 shares.

TikTok users were left shocked at Lucy’s nails and took to the comments to express this.
