I was born in the south. I live in the south and will die in the south. This is only a small part of the memories I share.
I usually begin my pieces with a bit of history behind my idea or product, but when I perused (these) first words . . . A nail is a claw-like plate at the tip of the fingers and toes in most primates, I said, enough! No self-respecting, red-blooded woman (anywhere) would dare have her fingernails to look like a claw-like plate. What is this, the creature from The Predator? I am old-fashioned and I do not apologize. I appreciate women from their head up (including their finger and toenails) to their feet.
So with that, please allow me to talk a little about a woman's fingernails. Don't looked stunned. All of the girls in this audience knows that you all have fingernails, so you are in good company. Matter of factly, I deeply-appreciate a woman with blood-red fingernail polish. And toenails to boot. There is just something about nails that are red that speaks so loudly to me.
If you think about it, a set of blood-red fingernails are only a small-but-important "tool" in a woman's arsenal. Of course, she has her styled-hair, trimmed eyebrows, perfectly-made-up eyes and make-up, athletically-toned legs, but when she is without red fingernails, she realizes that there is something definitely missing. No wonder that she feels sad.
I am the one who feels depressed now, because I confess. For years, I took a woman's fingernails for granted. While I did love red toenails, I am so sorry that red fingernails got caught in the shuffle. Again, to all of the women who wear red fingernails, I sincerely apologize.
You will notice the word, arsenal, used in this hub for a reason. A woman's collection of tools that she uses each day are what I call her arsenal. And her fingernails, I would put them above all of her other worthy items that has kept her safe and won many battles on her behalf. Red fingernails are not something to snuff at. I know what it's like to be taken for granted myself, and it bites. But when I found that I had looked upon women who wore red fingernails, I was suddenly-depressed and had to pray to God for forgiveness.
Now I feel much better. I can view a woman at the end of any shopping mall and say in my heart, she has such a nice color of fingernails. I wager that she pays high-dollar for them to be trimmed, shaped and polished. 78% of the time, I right. Also, when I see a woman with no fingernail polish, I don't discriminate. I say in my heart just how powerful she looks and walk down the mall. But still, red fingernails are to be appreciated.
Many people, even at this time, do not take the time to understand the various ways that a woman can utilize her fingernails. This coming straight from people who know the street and society. I take their word almost every time.
A woman can use her fingernails by: . . .
⦁ Using them as defensive weapons. If she is being attacked by some idiot, she can get her razor-sharp nails to cut a gash into his hands or shoulders.
⦁ When she is on a flight to Japan from New York City, she will not be bored. She can use her nails like drumsticks and hit them swiftly against each other and others on the flight will enjoy the break.
⦁ She can use her nails as paint brushes. All she has to do is be like the late Bob Ross and dip her fingertips into colorful paint and let her fingers "dance" on the paper and who knows? She might have an accidental new career.
⦁ When push comes to shove and is running late, she can shave her legs with her sharp nails and ladies, do not be embarassed. Women are doing this all over the place.
⦁ The woman that I am talking about is probably the C.E.O. of some powerful corporation, but she wants to put something back as to not be greedy. She visits the local animal shelter once a week and uses her nails to scratch the various animals who are itching. She loves it. So do the animals.
I am so honored to take this time to prove to everyone that a woman's finger (and toenails) are one of her most-important assets. Just to be on the safe side, do not forget your nail clippers any day. Keep a pair in your purse and if she encounters a nasty hang-nail, well, she is prepared to TCB, (Take Care of Business). Elvis also had great nails.

Okay, I find your treatise on red fingernails humorous. I just wish my husband had the same thoughts. One day after I'd painted my long nails red and was waving them in the air to dry, my husband walked by and asked, "Fresh kill?"

The red finger nails attracted me to read this hub. Well done. I find it amusing and yes, I love red polish on my fingers and toe nails. It’s been a while since I coloured my nails red due to a lot of gardening on my balcony. Thanks for reminding me to paint my nails red. Thank you for sharing. Have a nice day.
