Billie Eilish Rips off Her Entire Fingernail and the Pics Are Revolting | 22 Words

Before we get started, a quick trigger warning: if you're afraid of blood, gore, and gaping wounds, this probably isn't the piece for you. The good news is, we have a ton of content here - so go have a browse elsewhere, and enjoy reading about something non-gross. Got it?

Ok, for those of you who are still here: get ready for something grim. Billie Eilish is (obviously) well-known for making surprisingly groovy music -particularly for a teenager. But she's perhaps equally as well known for her crazy image. No item is too brightly colored, explicitly branded, or oversized for the singer. And there's one accessory she's never without: a set of enormous acrylic nails. Although these pics reveal why she might be better to rethink this style choice...

Aged just seventeen, Billie Eilish has taken the music industry by storm.

She's been writing and creating her own music since she was incredibly young, and has risen to fame with huge hit album When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? earlier this year.

She's also known for being something of a quirky character.

Eilish was home-schooled and didn't really interact with kids her own age apart from her siblings until she started to make waves in the music scene. This gives her something of a unique outlook on the world.

It also gives her music quite a different sound.

Many are pretty shocked that such a young person could create such hauntingly catchy tunes - and such suggestive lyrics.

It's safe to say, Eilish is as famous for her image as her music.

Because the teen has some really unique personal style. She doesn't dress like your typical seventeen-year-old-girl, that's for sure.

Eilish is known for rocking some pretty out-there looks.

Like this full white suit complete with Powerpuff Girl embroidery, which she pairs with some signature tiny sunglasses. Weird - but it kind of works?

Or what about this full green ensemble?

We have to say, love it or hate it, you can't deny Eilish's commitment to her look - and that's not something many of us are brave enough to pull off.

But it's not just clothing choices that make the signature Eilish look.

The musician is also almost never seen without her classic super-long acrylic nails - as displayed here when meeting her idol Avril Lavinge.

In fact, Eilish's nails have become something of a meme.

Fans of the star collect images of her super-long nails, trying to catch a snap of them at their longest ever.

In fact, Eilish has some of the most recognizable hands in the biz.

Alongside her signature talons, she also tends to sport at least one enormous silver ring on every one of her fingers. Sure, it's style over practicality - but we're into it.

Nonetheless, with great length comes great responsibility.

And this week, Eilish has revealed the less glamorous side to being quite so dedicated to the long nail life.

As many of us know, breaking a nail can be a little bit heartbreaking.

But aside from all the wasted time down the drain, and the agonizing decision as to whether you should chop them all to match, it can also be kind of painful.

And this only gets truer the longer your nails are.

While breaking off a natural long nail can string a little, though, there's no pain that quite compares to snapping off a falsie.

A false nail is any sort of plastic implement attached to your natural nail using glue.

The problem is, the glue used is often stronger than the actual real nail. Meaning when the acrylic comes loose, it can often end up taking the fingernail beneath with it, too.

As Eilish learned to her detriment this week.

She shared an image on her Instagram stories of four proudly intact, three-inch-long, lime green nails - and one bloodied stump.

We know, we know...

The picture is absolutely horrifying - in fact, we can almost feel the same pain in our own fingertips.

But that's not the only risk of a longer nail.

Because in the same Instagram story, Eilish shared yet another peril of her falsie life - and this one looks equally as ouch-inducing.

Yep, that's right.

Eilish ended up managing to stab herself right through the palm of her hand using her oversized nails.

That's gotta hurt.

One acrylic-related injury is bad enough - but two in a single session. If we were Eilish, we'd be rethinking our nail routine.

Although some are feeling less sympathetic.

It's true, Eilish did sort of ask for nail-related trouble by opting for such a ridiculous amount of length - but we still feel bad about her injuries!

Maybe it'll be enough to convince Eilish to have a rethink.

Although based on her consistent dedication to her image, we're suspecting perhaps not. But this isn't the only time Eilish's style choices have got her into some bother. Keep reading to learn about the internet's weird obsession with this teenager's body.
