Seriously, why?! I mean, come on. What benefits does it have? I mean, though I don't care for them either, if you're doing the whole looks thing, I understand lipstick, eyeliner, and that stuff, but painting your nails? Why?!

    I am now starting to understand why women paint their fingernails, though I probably will never participate in the activity. Though I will never understand why people paint their toenails. It's just a weird thing about me, but feet kinda weird me out, and painting your toenails just makes them look creepier to me. I don't know why, but it just does.

    I agree with Random Person...it's pretty and it's fun. You can be creative if you want, customizing them to go with your personality. It's one of those things--like makeup--that if someone doesn't like them and doesn't get why it's fun, there is no way they will understand it.

    Besides through the years I've gone with many guys who really liked my nails--good back-scratchers and a couple of them thought my painted fingernails (and my painted toenails) were sexy. For a few years I used to have the fingernails on my baby fingers "pierced" with a tiny gold hoop. lol

    Well, I don't understand the crazy ones that look like they could kill someone. I do, however, believe that painting nails is just another way of being creative and self expressive. It can be a form of art and a fashion statement (just as clothing is). I don't know when painting nails started, but I do know that it became popular when school uniforms were more prevalent and they couldn't express themselves through their clothing. They instead used their nails. That is, of course, until many schools started making guidelines against that (not common anymore).

    This is fine:
    pretty nails

    Hmm, I see your point. Though I probably will never participate in nail painting, I will no longer question why other women do it. At least with the fingernails, anyways.

    Yep ^^ So now you wont think people are as crazy anymore (unless they have the dagger kind that I posted above...)
  • Midnite12 Alexis ... 2013/04/17 22:51:47
    Yes, unless they have the dagger point.

  • Midnite12 nameless 2013/04/17 02:33:36
