There, she offers a wide range of services, including gel with a custom or set design, BIAB nails and acrylics, too – with prices ranging from £15 to £60 depending on what the customer wants.
With a great deal of experience in the industry, it’s clear Sherefa knows what she’s doing.
This is exactly why Sherefa was left completely horrified when one of her client’s fingers began curving in on itself in the most unexpected way.
Sharing a clip on her social media account, viewers could see how her long, oval-shaped nails had curved inwards.
“What the f**k is going on?” the client could be heard saying.
She then zoomed in on it to show just how weird and bizarre it looked as the client joked: “Should we keep it like this?”
Over the clip, TikTok user @tgw.studios wrote: “When you’re doing a biab soakoff and your client’s nail starts curling like a pasta shell…
“So you both take videos because what in the world is actually going on.”
In the caption, she added: “Being a nail tech is fr the best job in the world”.
People were quick to comment on the odd video as one person wrote: “Nails curve inwards when they become dehydrated, lots of cuticle oil and they should go back to normal x”.
Another said: “This happened to me when I use acetone in a bowl and warm water. I stick to foil removal now.”
A third shared: “Omg mine do that too low key kinda hurt though”.
While a fourth added: “Yes, this used to happen to me during soak offs all the time but they eventually go back to normal”.
According to nailknowledge.org, acetone can “make thin and highly flexible nails more susceptible to shape changes than thicker and less flexible nails”.
They continue: “However, any changes in nail shape should be reversed within hours.”
As acetone removes water and oil from the nail, it’s important to moisturise and use cuticle oil to rehydrate the area.
This should reverse the curling of the nail.
