Do fancy nails matter?

I do wonder how people manage to do anything in RL with nails that long.  Perhaps they have servants.

Haha I tried the super long ones for a laugh once and got fed up within a few hours.

Fancy nails totally matter. Right now I'm using ones with an angular polish so it looks like I carved nails for myself out of a diamond or something.

What I really, truly, desperately want is a pearlescent polish with materials.

When I bought my first new car, a strawberry red 1991 Ford Escort station wagon, it came with a little bottle of touch-up lacquer. I opened it and was instantly hit with the unmistakable aroma of acetone, the patron solvent of fingernail polish. I painted a stripe on my nail and was smitten. Strawberry red became my default color (on those rare days I painted up). When I replaced the Escort with my second new car, a grey 2007 wagon, I got another little bottle and that became my default color. That's the closest I've come to Goth. Then I got a used fire engine red 99 Miata and started painting my nails in both colors, sometimes red with grey stripes, grey with red stripes or whatever mix makes me smile.

I love buying "nail polish" at NAPA Auto Parts.

I hate choosing colors, so I amortize the decision cost of picking a car color over years of painting my nails to match.

   I like a variety of colors on my SL nails, often coordinating with my outfit(s). I find many of the available patterns appealing, but some themes are not for me. I'll nearly always check out nail shops I haven't yet visited to see what they have. I need to check and see if there's a template for the Maitreya nails. I've been thinking of making my own.

   To answer the question in the thread's title: As with so many other things, it's going to depend on the individual and who will be looking at interacting with their hands.

Of course fancy nails do matter <33 Check out Ascendant, Conviction or Lueur. Looove their claws. 

Empire nails are also outstanding, Nail Plug has also been making some amaaazing skins for the Empire nails as well as Bento Nails of their own.

Real Evil also has a few nice gacha nails but they are a bit too short for me 😛 

Mug has witchy nails of sorts. Last but not least Formanails has some elegant/wedding/formal event type of nails. They're cutesy. 

There are others too. There's such a little lovely world of fancy nails out there :3

   ... I never knew I'd enjoy a thread with the topic of nails quite so much, but parts have had me grinning or smiling, and then Madelaine got me chuckling out loudly.
