Is Momma the A-Hole for Saying No to Acrylics?!

Well, well, well... looks like we've got ourselves a real nail-biter of a situation here! Momma's putting her foot down and saying no to acrylics, but her daughter's not having it! She's all like, "But mooooom, press-ons are SO uncool!" And then hubby jumps in like, "Come on, babe, we can afford it!" But momma's not budging! She's all about that budget life and ain't gonna waste money on something she thinks is worthless! So, what do you think? Is momma being too harsh, or is she just trying to teach her daughter the value of a dollar? Let's see what the internet has to say about this nail-biting dilemma!

Mom dismisses husband's opinion, refuses to teach daughter a lesson 🤷‍♀️
