For a lot of people, a trip to the nail salon is a much-anticipated treat - a chance to unwind and let someone else do the pampering.
Now, as a frequent salon visitor, I'm not going to lie, after hearing these common icks I now feel bad about my past behaviour in nail salons.
News of what irks the technicians the most was revealed on TikTok by a user who goes by the name @har.lieee, and she began by explaining that the first of the three biggest, dreaded icks involves appointment bookings.
"It's literally 3pm but can I book an appointment for 3:30?," the technician joked in the video, mimicking the ick.
We can only assume that she's grown so tired of this ick that she no longer takes on clients who try and book appointments this last minute.
She then explained that another ick of hers comes from clients who appear to book their appointments in the correct manner.
Imitating one, she said: "Hey girl, can I book an appointment for Thursday at 4pm?"
"Of course," she said, parroting her reply. "If you could just send me a $10 deposit and we can book it."
She then imagined the client actually not being sure that they were free at that time now that they have to guarantee their attendance with a deposit.
Mimicking her third biggest ick, which was also to do with appointment attendance, the technician explained that she simply can't run a business with clients who are very late.
"Hey girl, I know you say you have a 15 minute grace period, but I'm going to be like 20 minutes late," she said.
The technician then explained that in this situation, she would outright cancel a customer's appointment.
As you can imagine, the video went far from unnoticed on TikTok.
Reacting to the icks, another nail technician wrote: "THE FIRST ONE... HARD ON THE FIRST ONE."
Alongside a crying emoji, a customer remarked: "Not me always being late."
A third technician elaborated: "The girls that don't say hey or hi. They be like 'I need an appointment for tomorrow at 1:30pm now.'"
The technician ended her video by explaining that her fourth biggest ick is when a client brings a guest along to the appointment - specifically, their boyfriend.
This didn't go down well with some TikTokers, with one stating that they only bring their partner because they have anxiety.
