Nail art has always been a subtle way to showcase a little bit of your personality or synchronize your overall look, and a good manicure will never go unappreciated by loved ones and colleagues.

And in the last few years, more and more nail artists have been creating increasingly elaborate designs in order to drum up business or increase followers on their social media accounts. These often reflect a popular trend that look simultaneously ridiculous and impressive at the same time.

One Instagram page that has become very popular with nail art fanatics is Nail Sunny, who boast a remarkable 2.2 million followers on the image-sharing platform.

The nail salon, located in Beverly Hills, California, has gained a lot of attention over the years with their very unique cuticle creations.

Such as pizza nails:

And sushi nails:

Or even Kim Kardashian nails:

However, the popular Instagram page has been met with backlash recently, after posting their artistic comment on the recent coronavirus outbreak that originated in China and has since affected countries all over the world.

Posting the 'Coronavirus Nails' to their feed, many followers immediately thought the designs were in poor taste, considering the fact the world is ensnared in a global pandemic.

As per the most recent situation report from the World Health Organization, there have been 132,758 confirmed cases of COVID-19 around the world, resulting in 4,955 deaths - these numbers have only continued to climb today.

On one hand, the individual's nails have been made to resemble heads wearing face masks (commonly worn as a form of protection against the virus). The nails on the model's other hand have been decorated to resemble the coronavirus virions (a virus particle).

Check out their designs below:

Images shared to the page also show a fingernail and thumbnail decorated with the words 'Coronavirus', '2019-nCoV', and 'STOP'.

Unsurprisingly, several Instagram users took to the comments section to voice their displeasure at such a serious global situation being trivialized into nail art.

One comment read: "This is done in really bad taste and super insensitive", which was echoed by another user who posted: "What the f**k is wrong with you people".

A third added: "How bout we DONT use a deadly virus for profit? [sic]"

Despite the backlash, the posts depicting the nails have remained live, as of this writing.
