As the post earned 34,000 likes, none of the likers agreed that it looked cute or nice.

As such, the fingernails on the tiny hand was so pointed that it seemed like the nails were shaped by a nail file then applied with a glossy layer of a colorless nail polish.

Many people, especially moms, expressed their concern and warned that it is very dangerous for babies who could easily scratch their delicate skin.

Another concerned individual also pointed out that having long nails is not safe for babies because they rub their eyes a lot and they put their hands inside their mouths so frequent.  If the nails get dirty, they become “germ incubators” and babies can easily catch diseases.  Babies can also scratch their delicate skin.

When asked if the image is cute or not, I bet most people would definitely agree with me in saying, “Not!”
