A WOMAN has nails so long that she is completely reliant on her boyfriend to perform everyday tasks for her.
After splashing out on getting the largest gel nail extensions possible, prior to a friend’s wedding, Kelly Howard has rendered her hands entirely useless.
Howard said: “I thought I’d treat myself as it’s a special occasion. And they look undeniably great, but I’m finding it hard to do basic things like getting dressed and eating.
“I’ve ripped through several pairs of tights, impaled an apple with my thumb, and given a stranger on the bus a nasty scratch while trying to ring the bell. But beauty is suffering. At least for the people around me.”
Howard’s boyfriend Josh Hudson said: “It’s like living with a helpless newborn, but one that keeps demanding I put on another episode of Married at First Sight because it can’t use the remote.
“Watching her paw at her phone screen like some incompetent bear is tragic. And I’ve even had to tie her shoelaces. Whoever sold women the lie that very long, very expensive nails are attractive is some kind of evil genius.”
Howard added: “I’m going to keep them. Watching Josh gag as he pulls the hair out of the plughole for once is worth the money and inconvenience.”
