The men who keep long fingernails are girlish I think, where did OP get that bullshit?
I thought it had something to do with an old Mandarin tradition of keeping long fingernails to display wealth, now ironically only observed by rural folks and nouveau riche.
it has nothing to do with one's wealth, Dando, are you refering to the Empress Cixi? lol...
better with some colour polish......yuck!!!!
....Chinese people and their weird stuff, nobody will ever get it...It's so gross.
@Evanescence, Street Fighter nails kick the asses of everyone else's digits, if hands had asses, I guess.
It had something to do with wealth. Having long fingernails was a sign that a person didn't have to make a living through manual labor, not unlike having pale skin was a sign that a person was not a farmer. I dunno if it really was a custom among Chinese civil servants, but you can find fingernail protecting jewelry in museums and antique stores. It's not that rare.
That street fighter fingernails are funny and awesome I mean actually ...
hmmm, so we can confirm all people who keep long fingernails are wealthy ones...lol
