The Ugly Manicure

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Thank goodness not everyone likes the same style or the same color. It would be a very bland world indeed.

There are however some manicures that make you pause and wonder why anyone thought that was a good idea. The color is wild, the nails are too sharp, and sometimes you wonder how anyone can function with nails “like that”.

Take for example getting extremely long fingernails. How does anyone drive a car, open a door, scratch their head, or even use the bathroom with those nails? A wild tattoo is one thing, but it’s just design. A manicure with strange or wildly long nails becomes a functional issue.

Nevertheless, you can have any nail design or length you want. It’s up to you. Just be prepared for feedback like “that’s an ugly manicure”, or “those are just plain ugly” or “What where you thinking?”

The true contrarian will be fine with all this. They may be used to reaction from wild hair, body piercings or funky clothes. They may even relish the idea of shocking the world with an offbeat manicure.

It can be fun to extract a reaction from others with an ugly manicure or one that seems unworkable. The nice thing about manicures is that they can be reversed. It’s not like a tattoo that can not easily be removed without a lot of pain and expense.

To each her own. If you want to show the world your wild side, go for it.

Father’s Day 2015


Father’s Day in the United States is on the third Sunday of June. It celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make for their children’s lives. Its origins may lie in a memorial service held for a large group of men, many of them fathers, who were killed in a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in 1907.

This New Manicure Is Destroying My Career

Here's a funny post by a typist that had long nails done. She couldn't type after that. Talking with many working women I find that they don't get their nails done often because work destroys them or it's impossible to do work with beautiful long nails.

Here's the story:

I got my nails done on Tuesday after I saw this clip of Kim Kardashian with a beautiful pastel manicure. The color actually reminds me of the gaming system from the 1999 Canadian filmeXistenZ starring Jennifer Jason Leigh

At the nail salon, I said I wanted a full set of acrylics, and the tips plus the manicure together were only $40 which is practically free so my brain stopped working and I leaned in. When the manicurist asked me how long I wanted them, she suggested, "Not too long and not too short, right?"

I disagreed. "With me, you're going to want to err on the side of too long." See, when I was in high school my fake nails were so long that they crept into more yearbook photos than my face did. They were incredible.

Anyway, back to this week: almost immediately I realized I had a little trouble texting, but it didn't occur to me that I was potentially destroying my career as a professional typist until I got home and sat down at my computer. Utter nonsense came out.

What's the solution? Well, I could either cut my nails (no) or do what I imagine Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj do: hire an assistant. That's how good they look.

[This is Kara. As it turns out, I actually have a real job and can't sit around all day typing shit on Jane's behalf. So if anyone in the Los Angeles area would like to volunteer their hands, I would very much appreciate it.] Thu, 16 Apr 2015 13:00:00 -0700
