Painted Nails for Everybody!

All of my original finger nail uploads have long since been tagged and removed from the downloads area because the amount of suckitude was unreal. However, I decided to revive this project because I can't find another version out there for these same age groups.

I took the original versions of my child and toddler nails and tweaked them a lot. I adjusted the finger/toe placement to make them sit better on the sim. I used the default EA skin for the toenail placement. So depending on the skin used, the toenail polish may or may not sit in the exact place where it should. But this is such a small detail.

Besides fixing borked textures and categories, I also adjusted the pattern tilling. Now you can get intricate details on the nails, such as polka dots.

When taking pictures of the nails, I decided NOT to use the HQ mod. So, what you see is how an untouched game would render the nails.

Like before, the nails are for toddler and child females. They are categorized as gloves (nails) and socks (toenails) for all outfit categories, including naked. There is only one channel.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
