I hate long fingernails too, but I had never thought about that aspect of it. Thanks so much for the mental image. Mental floss, please.
How do they pick their nose?On the pro side, the nails probably come in handy when it comes to ear wax removal. Hey!!!...they could open up a ear wax removal store.
Ugh. Bleah. Shiver. Nasty. Met an awesomely beautiful woman once. A real knockout. A body and a face that would make you shiver until your spine rattled. A voice like pure fresh warm honey and a mind sharp as a scalpel. We had so many things in common it was scary. But she had three inch long fingernails. I suspect it was to weed out the potential pool of suitors. I weeded myself out of the pool. Yuck.
I hate it too. Even worse, I saw a man this weekend with thumbnails that had to be an inch long. Gross.
i used to have nightmares about those images of the people with the UBER long nails in Guinness Books. How did those people wipe? or do anything with their hands. Imagine cleaning the the nails themselves.
Maybe they use a pailbrush and garden hose you know keep those nails cleanPapa
Bidet all the way!Actually the secret is holding stuff (not just toilet paper) sideways, closer to the thumb and forefinger instead of using the tips of your fingers and folding the fingernails flat with the hand. As for that particular job, ladies with long nails use a huge wad of tissue.
Uck, never grow mine long at all. Starts bugging me when they get much past the tip of my finger. My hubby's comment about long nails was, "I'd never let those bacteria crusted spears near my privates."
It looks like Quandlequeen was the only one to come to their defense. But doesn't it seem to be a throw back to some weird generation of someone thought it was sexy but didn't let on that it was really a joke?There was a thing in China (remember, the land of foot binding)where it was a sign of nobility and having long nails showed that one never did actual work. It just seems so odd that anyone would continue with that fetish today.
My mom always grew her nails long - not quite as long as you're referencing. I've tried to grow my nails but they start to curl as soon as they reach the tips of my fingers. If you think long nails are nasty, long curled nails are absolutely disgusting. That said I've learned that you can do absolutely anything with daggers sprouting from your fingers, including typing 80 wpm and wiping essential parts.Most of the women I know who get fake nails are uber fussy germ phobes. Sort of counter-intuitive isn't it?
Sure is crazy no matter how one looks at it.
