The cost of weekly manicures can add up fast, while DIY nail art and transfers can be super fiddly (and pretty much impossible if you're even the slightest bit cack-handed).
But it looks like some sort of beauty genius has found a solution...
A new Facebook video, uploaded by Hong Duong Le from Korea, shows a nail design machine in action - printing an intricate pattern on nails in a matter of seconds.
The video shows a woman placing her finger in the machine, using a touch screen to pick a design. She then waits while something that essentially looks like a jet printer moves back and forth across her nail.
Bam! In less than a minute, she's got a rad flower design - with no chance of smudging.
The 54-second clip, uploaded on 13 July already has over 31m views, and we're hoping the popularity will mean we'll get these magic machines over here asap. Au revoir, Shellac!
