Super Mario fingernails

Nailchick27's handpainted Super Mario fingernails make me yearn for a manicure.

  1. Those aren’t fingernails. They’re finger-nail shaped acrylic chips. This person’s actual fingernails are currently being destroyed by fungus that is living between the nails and the glue.

    Acrylic nails are the most disgusting thing people do to normally-exposed parts of their body. And yes, I’m aware of the types of things people into body-modification do.

  2. Cute but eewwww, how much dirt is under those nails? I hope this person doesn’t handle food for a living let alone work in health care!

  3. Ooooh, Someone has their judging pants on today. I wore acrylic nails for three or four years (I grew up on Long Island, its an important guinea rite of passage) and I never had a fungus, not once, ever.

    A fungus on the nails is a fairly serious problem to be dealt with. Most of the time, what you think of as a fungus in that situation is a mold (still a little icky, but easier to treat) and that generally happens when the acrylic cracks and you keep putting your hands in water instead of fixing it.

    Granted, when I did finally take off the acrylic, my nails were quite weak, and I had to give myself glue manicures for a year before they got back to their normal strength.

  4. Never had nails of that length so I might be completely wrong but it seems as if they would get in the way of actually playing Super Mario 3.

    Fandom that negates the activity = fail ?

  5. Acrylics, while may not be always attractive (case in point,) do not always harbor fungus. I wore acrylics on and off for years, and never had fungus. I also was a hairdresser and had my hands in water all day– still no fungus, EVAR.

    Any nail techs around?

    What I am curious about:
    Obvs. these are acrylics. But the parts that are painted on the nail beds- is this painted on the skin, or on acrylic adhered to the skin?

    If it’s on the skin, it’s not going to last very long, and it seems like it would be wrinkling (and it’s not.)

    If it’s on acrylic that’s been adhered to the skin: SUPER OUCH! It would last longer that way, tho. By looking at the paint, and the redness around it, that may be the case. I hope the model signed a release- cause when the acrylic comes off, his/her skin may come off too.

  6. On one hand I think any very long fingernails look nasty and acrylic ones are especially bad.

    On the other hand I really love Super Mario 3.

    I just don’t know what’s good any more!

  7. “I think any very long fingernails look nasty”
    Doesn’t that entirely depend on who they are attached to?
