Mum slammed for giving her baby fake acrylic nails

A mum has faced a barrage of criticism for giving her baby long, fake acrylic nails.

Readers of Reddit reacted with horror when the mum posted a photo of the nails, describing them as "awful" and "trashy".

Others were extremely worried about the child's safety, fearing she might poke them in her eyes or mouth. 

The nails - cut into the popular  'ballerina' shape - were painted with rose gold glitter, rhinestones and one even has a Louis Vuitton fashion logo stenciled on.

The post was shared to Reddit's r/trashy thread which has two million users following it.

One was outraged saying, "This is dangerous and wrong"

Another added, "I’m concerned this baby will poke her eye out."

A third wrote, "So goddam trashy and awful."

Some parents did admit that they could understand how boredom would lead you to "makeover" your baby during isolation. 

The Bachelor winner Laura Byrne used a brown eye pencil to give daughter Marlie-Mae crazy eyebrows.
