Kailynn Roland, a resident of Lake Wales, Florida, and a woman who likes to occasionally "Live Mas," is demanding an apology from Taco Bell for serving her an acrylic fingernail. 

According to FOX 13, Roland and her boyfriend, Joseph Richardson, stopped by the Lake Wales Taco Bell location Monday evening, August 17, for some triple-layered nachos, but after finishing her cheesy stack of chips and beans, she noticed a French-tip fingernail nestled at the bottom. 

"It's gross. I puked," said Roland to Fox 13. "It was my favorite food," she continued.

Taco Bell has offered the couple $40 in gift cards, but Richardson claims that's not enough. "One of the things I'd really like is an apology from the Taco Bell corporation," said Richardson to Fox 13. 

Even though Roland is angry and disgusted, her boyfriend says the experience won't completely stop him from eating Taco Bell. "Probably never again, and if I do eat at at Taco Bell, it will not be at this location," he said.
