I keep my nails super short and stubby nowadays, but back in the day I had me some eagle talons! 🦅💅
I’ve been thinking about Wolverine-like nails lately because I started watching this show on Hulu called Claws…
It’s about a group of ride-or-die Florida friends with criminal ties who work in a nail salon. There’s fierce female bonding, salon gossip and — oh, yeah: murder, money laundering, booty shaking and betrayal! (Of course.)
I mostly watch it for the nail closeups (well, it’s also pretty amusing)…
The characters wear elaborate, intricate nail designs on what literally look like claws.
The nail art is amaze-balls, but there’s absolutely no way I could have nails that long at this point in my life. I might have been able to swing it back in college or in my early 20s. That’s when my claws were at their longest, which was between half an inch and an inch beyond my fingertips. They were my natural nails, too, and pretty strong. And they grew fast.
I think something changed when I hit my 40s because my nails don’t grow anywhere near as fast now, and the sides split, which never used to happen.
So now I keep ’em short and sweet.
Anywho, what’s the longest your nails have ever been?
