Photos of a newborn baby with long, pointed nails has gone viral and people are calling the manicure dangerous.
A social media user shared a snap on Facebook showing a woman's thumb gripping a baby's tiny hand. The infant appears to have had a manicure, with lengthy fake nails attached.
Along with the photo, the woman said: I can do your babies nails… cheap rates.
Some social media users were quick to point out the dangers of the child's sharp nails, with one writing: 'Baby nails are sharp enough as is, I can't imagine equipping my daughter with claws. Hard pass."
The post has since been shared on Reddit where fellow parents slammed the trend.
One commented: "You’re supposed to keep your baby’s nails cut short so they don’t hurt themselves… this is trashy and f***in stupid."
Another wrote: "This is highly dangerous. Babies often times will poke themselves in the eyes or face and even without nails they'll leave scratch marks. This is straight up stupid and will only harm the baby further."
A third added: "I could understand painting a babies nails, but giving them fake ones? It’s too dangerous! They constantly are touching their faces, so it could really do damage to their eyes. It’s better to wait until they are a lot older."
