A BEAUTY salon has come under fire for creating a manicure which uses live ants, embedded into the tip of the nail.
Nail Sunny, famed for its quirky manicures, uploaded a video of its unusual manicure to Instagram recently.
Usually, people praise the salon for creating distinctive looks.
But this time it’s been criticised for animal cruelty.
The salon wrote: “Ants in the nails – YAY OR NAY? What happened with ants? Look the next video !!!!! They are breathing!!!!!”
In a subsequent video the ants are released from the nails, but people were still unhappy.
shanaiapapaya said: “Good Lord why do that in the first place?”
mester.dora said: “It’s animal cruelty. They [are] suffering!”
scaneet said: “This is utterly disgusting.”
glitzy_nailz said: “I hope you set these ants free. They are working ants and their colony need them . They’ll probably be rejected now because they’ll stink of acetone.
“I’m not liking [the] use of living creatures so please can you stop this.”

Previously Nail Sunny created a selection of fun manicures – including hot dog nails.
The salon released a video of nails with tiny combs attached that can actually brush your locks.
The sped-up tutorial shows extensions being added to each nail before the comb “teeth” are drilled out of each nail.
When the “combs” have been created, each one is painted in a different colour to make them truly stand out.

Nail Sunny uploaded the bizarre creation online with the caption: “Brush nails – YAY OR NAY”.
Nail Sunny had not responded to The Sun Online’s request for a comment about its ant nails.
