We can't help but wonder what Paige would have to say about this

Indiyah Polack

Like a lot of our fave Islanders, Love Island 2022 star Indiyah Polack can do little to no wrong in our eyes, but even we're a little torn over this one – just like Indiyah's acrylic nail, apparently 💅.

The Love Island finalist – who came in third place with boyfriend Dami Hope this summer – has caused grumblings on Twitter after revealing that she visited hospital over a broken acrylic nail this week.

On Monday 17 October, the 23-year-old tweeted the following life update to her 91.1k Twitter followers, "Maybe I am dramatic for going to doctors for a broken acrylic, the nurse put a plaster on it and sent me home 💀."

And after a glimpse at the comments, we're just glad she kept this update off her booming Instagram profile, where she boasts over a million followers.

it's safe to say the comments were everything from sympathetic to seething.

One follower commented, "And THIS is why our NHS Is so back logged 🙃."

Another wrote, "And this is why people struggle to get doctor’s appointments when they’re genuinely unwell."

A third commented, "What an absolute waste of the NHS time."

A fourth fan stood up for Indiyah saying, "So being in pain for having a broken nail isnt a valid reason now… the nhs isnt just for life or death situations."

We have to say, even though we're mega Indiyah stans, we can see both sides here: on one hand, it's Indiyah Polack, and on the other hand, we have never sought professional help over a broken nail. But then again, we're not Indiyah Polack and never will be.

Perhaps not one for Twitter, Indiyah, but we'd be lying if we said we don't think this is kind of on the iconic GC side.

And to be fair to our girl, acrylic issues can come with a fair few health issues (as a drag queen, I can vouch for this). In fact, as good as they look, they aren't actually very good for general nail growth, repair and health; they can weaken your natural nails, and can cause bacteria and fungi growth in rare cases, as well as allergic reactions.

Saying all that, Indiyah herself admitted that the nurse put a plaster on it and sent her home, so maybe she is just a drama queen. But she's our drama queen 💅💖.

Love Island fans, if you love Indiyah Polack as much as we do then you absolutely need to see her Instagram page.

The OG Islander managed to make it to the final alongside her boyfriend Dami Hope but way before she even stepped into the villa we were obsessed with her pictures.

The reality TV star already had a career as a model and influencer outside of her day job and looking at her Instagram photos - before she stepped into the Love Island 2022 villa - it's obvious she would be the perfect fit for the show.

Her page already boasted some impressive looks has all the polish of the biggest influencers, so we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane and look at her iconic photos.
