Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
One of my very first "popular" uploads was my Longer Nails for the Ladies set. In fact, I believe it's the most downloaded item of mine. Well, I made those a long, long time ago when I was still new to creation. I recently saw a picture of them on tumblr being used on a sim and I was mortified. At first I was just going to remove the nail upload and leave it at that. But, I really like the squared tip shape of these, it's unique. They just needed a serious overhaul, so I set out to do it.
The first thing I did was adjust the nail placement on the sim. I got them to sit a little closer to the skin to reduce the thick floating effect. They are still a little raised on the finger, but that's how real acrylic nails (oxymoron, much?) look anyways. I also gave each age group their own separate mesh instead of using one enabled for all ages. This allowed me to fix the sunken thumbnail issue with elders.
The second update I did was to change the texture of the nails, well technically there never was texture, I just added it. The nails have a natural nail texture with a white tip applied to it. Because of the white tip, if you want to give the nail a complete thick opaque I-put-on-three-coats-of-polish-just-like-the-directions-said look, then you'll need to make the tip and tip liner slightly darker than the base of the nail. Otherwise, if you give them all the same color, you'll get a sheer "one coat" effect.
Lastly, I fixed the pattern tiling on the nails. Before, on the old version, any pattern applied to the nail would be squished horribly to the point where it looked like a bunch of confetti. Now you can have cute patterned tips!
Everything else about the nails is still the same. There are three channels: nail base, tip, and tip liner. They can be found for female teens through elder in all categories, including naked and career. They are accessories categorized as gloves.
(same for all LODs)
The same credit/thanks goes to Rose Sims for letting me modify her original nail mesh.
All hairs are EA, but the short cut has a default replacement texture by Aikea_Guniea.
