That’s going to raise some eyebrows at the nail salon!

Whatever it takes for some people to quit picking their nose, I guess.

That looks painful.

Thanks, it’s been too long since I’ve seen a banana post to “just look at”.

How long?

Well, if not eyebrows, it’ll certainly raise some nose hairs if the owner ever bites their nails by mistake when hungry.

Indeed! You don’t want to know what I’ve had to just look at while I waited for more bananas.

We had those when I was a kid! Those exact ones! “I herd u like corn, so I put corn on your corn…”

If you’re feeling nostalgic, they still make them. I’ve got a delightful set picked up within the last few years at a “Ralph’s” grocery store (Kroeger to the USA-ians not on the west coast).

Also, as the parent with at least some art/craft skills, I’m the one responsible for GirlChild’s nails, and while we’ve done “insane UV glow nails”, ladybugs, snowstorm, and recently “streaky fire”. I can’t imagine what a pain in the butt those impractical banana nails were. (and I’m not showing them to GirlChild because she’ll want some if I do.)

Oh, for fuck’s sake. Just look at these… how impractical they are. Even moreso than the fairly recent ‘nail art’ with tampon strings added. Also, if you’re into it - no fisting with those nails.

Because the fancy nails would break right away, right?

Fixed that for you.
