The Humor Of Fingernail Polish – Women And Their Fingernails

by Sherry Riter in Beauty,Different,Humor

As you probably gathered by now, I do not ever let my fingernails get very long. I just can’t function with them and I really don’t like to hear them clicking on the keyboard. Just call me weird.

Anyway, one of the physical attributes that I notice rather quickly is fingernails.

Are the fingernails clean?

Are the fingernails shaped pleasantly?

Are the fingernails functional?

Are the fingernails appropriate for the occasion?

I know there are A LOT of blogs that are dedicated to “fingernail polish” and creative nail art designs. There are so many that I haven’t been able to locate the original owner of all the photos, so if you see your creative nail art design photo in this post, let me know and I will note the source below your fancy schmancy nails.

I’ve painted my own nails many times. Too many to count actually, however the wildest I think I’ve ever had my nails was when I painted them all a different color. I actually not only did my nails that way, but I painted Brittany and Alyssa’s nails and toenails multi-colored. It was really quite fun. Since they are not young anymore and I’m not either, I just don’t think ten different colors on my nails would look so cool. But even with the festiveness of every nail being a different color, I still wouldn’t call it a creative nail art design. The ten color fingernail polish doesn’t even rank next to the creative nail art designs pictured in this post.

So I’m including some “different” kind of fingernails and creative nail art designs with humorous names to help identify them. Yes, I get a big kick out of these nails. I’m rather fascinated by the big array of colors and at the creativity in the different nail art designs. No, I can’t see myself ever replicating them on my own fingernails. One reason is that I’m not THAT creative. Another reason is that I can’t sit that long fiddling around with my nails. Yes, another reason is that I think some of the nails are absolutely hilariously ridiculous.

If you like them, more power to you! Different “strokes” for different folks. Get the pun? LOL

Let’s see if I can “nail” the descriptions. (wink)

Wow!!! I am just happy if I can get a little polish on my nails once in a while. I have to keep mine short because they are thinned from my medication and I constantly break them when creating jewelry. I hate it when I don’t have polish on my toes. I actually considered writing a post about polish a while ago. It’s still sitting in my drafts, LOL. Some of these are really wild.
P.S. forgot to mention- no nail art at Katherines Corner 🙂

LOLOLOL Katherine! My mom never paints her fingernails or toenails, so you’re not the Lone Ranger 😛

Wow, I was just looking at these on Pinterest last night. I would feel like my fingernail was suffocating and could not breathe! I cannot even stand clear polish, lol. Maybe it is the old thing. The real sharp ones, well you know your mom, I would have someone stabbed to death by accident, lol

It’s not the “old” thing because you’ve always felt that way about polish. LOL 😛

I don’t usually correct someone when I read their blog, but I am going to make an exception and make a correction on your post today. You wrote, “One reason is that I’m not THAT creative.” Are you KIDDING ME? No untruer words have ever been spoken. YOU ARE ONE OF THE MOST CREATIVE PEOPLE I KNOW. And that’s saying a lot, since I grew up in a very creative family. So I do recognize creativity. And may I also say that many times after reading a post you have written, your creativity has left me awestruck! Not only are you a wonderful writer, but the pictures you have accompanying your posts are always so perfect for whatever post you have written.

Well, enough praise. Knowing you, it is going in one ear and coming out the other. I know how hard it is for you to accept a compliment, although I have to admit you are getting better at accepting compliments. I’m just waiting for the day that you can accept what the whole world can see – that you are beautiful. 🙂

Talking about beautiful, I loved looking at the picture of the nails and the “creative” descriptions that you gave to each of the pictures. Some of the descriptions were hilarious and made me laugh out loud. My favorite description was, “I Have A Rich Husband Because I Can’t Do Anything For Myself And Have Several Personal Assistants With Me 24/7.” You “nailed” that one!

Another funny description that made me LOL was, “My Pinkie Finger May Get Lost, So I Have To Always Keep It On A Leash.”

As for me, I don’t wear nail polish on my hands or toes. I think it is healthy for nails to breathe. But that didn’t stop me from enjoying the fun nail art! 🙂

LOL Alrighty then! I stand corrected! I am creative! LOLOLOLOL Thank you!

I’m glad I made you laugh out loud. My favorite nail description was, “My Pinkie Finger May Get Lost, So I Have To Always Keep It On A Leash.” I laughed while I was typing it! 😛
