Welcome to the first edition of the Fingernail File.
Many years ago, I was chatting with the wife of a cow-orker. She noticed that my fingernails were uneven lengths and commented on it. (Nice, eh?)
I told her that I like long natural fingernails, and that I was trying to grow them.
She told me that she did, too, but, as soon as she broke a nail, she tore all of the other nails off so they'd all match.
Shortly thereafter, I started doing the same thing. When a nail broke, I'd trim all the others on that hand to the same length.
I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my fingernails are getting close to their maximum length on both hands.
I wondered how long it takes to grow them this long.
I decided to photograph them near nail-maximum, and note when I break a nail and have to cut the rest.
So, today, near nail-maximum:
Ready for hand modeling!
The nail on the left index finger is one of the longer ones, but it has curved like a claw, so it looks shorter than it is. It's actually longer than the one on the right index finger.
The pinkies and ring fingers always get longer than the others, though.
Weekly-ish shots until the first breakage....
