Jennifer pointed out that you could get bacterial, viral and fungal infections at nail salons where the tools haven’t been properly sanitized.

“There are a lot of potential health issues at these nail salons,” she told fill-in hosts Drake DeMarco and Rhiannon Ally.

“You can get a manicure potentially for $9, $8, $10… you could do it yourself at home.”

Viewers at home were baffled by Jennifer’s claims that it was possible to get such cheap manicures.

After a video about Jennifer’s advice was shared on Instagram, one wrote: “I haven’t ever seen a manicure for that cheap. That’s the cost of a bottle, at best.”

Another added: “This is so true, but a basic manicure is not $8 $10 or $12. They normally start at $32.00 if you’re lucky.”

A third agreed, replying to the comment: “She’s totally out-of-touch.”

The backlash comes after Jennifer returned to the US following a tropical vacation in Hawaii with her family.

The presenter showed off her incredible figure in several bikini snaps during the trip.

She posted a video of herself celebrating New Year’s Eve by running into the ocean while wearing a tiny green bikini.

Jennifer’s bikini was so skimpy that many fans thought she was topless and shared their confusion in the comments.

She headed on holiday with her husband Tom Werner and her two children Alex and Chloe.

The presenter revealed in mid-December that she was taking a break from GMA to go on vacation.

The news comes just days after she told her Instagram fans that she’s quit Twitter.

Jennifer revealed that she had deactivated her Twitter account.

She described the “hate/anger/nastiness and vitriol” as “too much.”

Jennifer was replaced on GMA during her vacation by Dr. Darien Sutton.

There have been several shake-ups on the morning show’s panel since Amy Robach and her co-host TJ Holmes‘s alleged affair was exposed in November.

Both Amy and TJ were removed from GMA3 and will remain off-air until an internal review of their “affair” has been completed.
