The young guy on the train next to me had talons. Yes, his fingernails extended a quarter to a half inch from the tips of each of his fingers, and, from the way they were finely filed and shaped, it was obvious that this was some sort of fashion statement. In fact, bona fide claws protruding from the hands of men in China is such a normal phenomenon that you just stop noticing it after a while, but as I watched the guy sitting next to be brandishing his grappling hooks it struck me that I have never talked to anybody about this style before.

These days, the most attention your nails are likely to get has to do with the relative ridiculousness of your nail art tastes. What on earth is everybody doing to themselves? But nails have carried political, social, medical, martial and mythic significance within various civilizations for centuries; as far as their aesthetic importance goes, we modern-day nail artisans are amateurs.
On humans and other primates, nails are a flattened version of a claw which likely developed to aid in gripping and climbing. The fact that healthy nails are the sign of a healthy person may have led to people beginning to grow them out, or it could have been simply that long nails are cumbersome when working with your hands, so they were something of a status symbol. Whatever the case, it might surprise you to learn that manicuring nails has actually been around for many thousands of years—dating back at least to B. At the time, Chinese royalty would grow their nails and tint them with things like eggwhites or flower petals.

Also what that other guy said, nose picking, and they also like to dig shit out of their ears with that thing. I've even had it explained to me that it was "fashionable", something about if you can have a faggy nail like that you aren't doing manual labour so you've come up in the world or something equally nongishly ridiculous and primitive. The pinky nail is the favorite for extended cultivation as it is the least at risk of damage or breakage, belonging as it does to the least used of the fingers.

Post a Comment. Monday, July 7, What's with the long pinky nail? Some Chinese men keep all of their fingernails long, but the incongruously long pinky nail is rather more common. And why just the pinky nail?
