South Africans are in disbelief as they look at images of artificial nails with a unique design and many feel they are too decorated. One woman decided to brighten her fingers with stylish nails and many locals don’t think they represent wealth.

The nails come in a unique colour and have decorations similar to R20 banknotes used in South Africa. The social media user feels the nails don’t represent someone who is wealthy because you can still be broke while wearing them.

Hebanna: Man with fake nails teaches women self-defence in a video

In a similar piece, Briefly News wrote that a man who is seen spotting artificial nails is an internet sensation and he is offering a free lesson to women when it comes to self-protection.

The guy is just unique but many people found his tricks or lessons a bit unrealistic.

Some social media networkers are arguing that it’s very difficult to clench your fist when you have such nails. They say it’s all about slapping, not punching an opponent when you have such nails.

At the same time, some people are impressed with the colour of the nails while some have shared their pictures having similar nails.
