Here Is A Thought On A Friday.

It drives me crazy when all the fingernails on my right hand are shorter than the fingernails on my left hand. Doesn’t my body care about symmetry at all???

I mean, a human kidney can filter out black mamba poison but my fingernails can’t grow at the same rate? You mock me nature. You mock me.

  1. I have this issue. I need longer nails on my right hand for guitar picking…yet they grow longer on the left and out (literally) with the dishwater and pot scourer, on the right?? Which disproves the Wiki theory that our dominant hand has longer nails..NO – it is the hand we use to scrub the pots that has short nails 😀

    That’s because you use one hand more then the other! It usually is same when I paint my nails, one chips before the other first…

  3. You know, there’s a scientific reason why nails grow at different rates. (Wow that sounded so geeky now that I read it ha ha ha). I actually posted something about it on my blog (Good finds, Good Reads {May 31} 😉 )

  4. lol I have a similar illness. I’m not a girly girl really but ever since the few months of perfectly manicured acrylic nails I had in 2012, I had done as a way to pamper myself (which I’m a bit pissed that I gave up on and had removed because the process was excruciating) my nails are inadequate now and back to one or two snagging so I have to cut them and so they are all different lengths. When I get more than two I just cut them all and have stumps for a while. >.> I think next payday I will go get shellac on them, see if that helps. Really I just wanted to use the word Shellac…cuz well it’s an awesome word!

  5. Are you right-handed? Maybe you hit the nails on your right hand against more things and either stunt their growth or wear them down? Is that even possible? haha, I have no idea! It just seemed reasonable for a second there….

    1. I’m a nail-biter and none of my nails are symmetrical, but that’s probably just because I so wish I was a reformed nail-biter. As soon as I’m done with one I tell myself no before I get to the other…which could be seen as a worse habit…

    According to the unquestionable folks at Wiki, you just informed us that you are left hand dominant; my theory is the nails grow faster on the dominant hand so we can better hold things like nachos and Oreos.
