There was so much to look at in Rihanna’s recent carnival photos that something was missed when she originally posted it — an apparent Photoshop fail.

Rihanna originally posted carnival photos on Monday, and they instantly spread around the web. Not because of her fingernails, but because the sexy superstar’s body is looking a little curvier.

Just a few typical days in the life of RiRi.
