    It looks to me like they would feel like being “clawed” with a thick piece of cellophane. Not much structure to them.

    I believe I have seen weavers who cut their nails this way so that they can manipulate multiple threads at the same time.

    I remember a Calvin & Hobbes comic where Calvin filed all his nails down to a point. Hobbes more or less said “nice, but they’re not retractable.”

    Ow. I predict those will last about three hours, on average, before getting caught on something and splitting.
    Ow, ow, ow ow ow.

    As a classical guitarist, I have to work on my nails constantly. Although they are now very strong, I still break them from time to time. This manicure didn’t last even a whole day. They aren’t very thick and the very first time a point snags on something, you have a painful tear.

    Oh, that hurts to look at. They’re going to get caught on stuff and split. It would be a better thing to do with
    acrylic nails that aren’t going to hurt you if they split or break.

    I want to file those nails down! Or pick off the tips! I have to stop looking at this picture…

    i did that once a little over 30 years ago: each “tooth” breaks easily and can indeed split til it hurts.

    Now, paint the thumb as Pacman and I’m on board.

      I was grossed out by this till I read your post, and now I’m all “AWESOME.” Yes indeed, and paint each fingernail a different color.. that would be ALL KINDS of win.

      Too bad I bite my nails too often to pull off such a shenanigan.

    Some more serious fingernail modification from an old BME interview:

    I did some thickening per the linked article and sharpening for a few years but have since more or less given it up and my nails have returned to a normal appearance but are still stronger and thicker than most

    In my teens I would to file my nails to a single point. Amazing for tickling. And a bit of red polish on the tips is funny.

    Look close, and you can see where the glue on one nail keeps it from splitting all the way up the quick.

    That’s just creepy, gross, and weirdly unnerving.

    Only if you’re not on the receiving end of those claws.

    Looks like a good method of getting your significant other to sleep on the couch.
