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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
After I posted mynail polish for short nails, many people expressed interest in a longer version. This is a *new* mesh for longer nails that works for both males and females, ages child through elder.

You can alter the length and shape of the nails using the alpha .bmp file - see the 'Notes' section below and the pictures for more details.

I've also included 12 recolors (more sets will posted soon, including ones with designs). Each of the recolor files are listed separately so people can choose (don't forget to download the mesh also!). For your convenience, the second-to-last file (the one that starts with SOLIDS) contains the full set of recolors, but you will still have to download the mesh separately.

Feel free to request other colors also, here or via PM.

***Even if you downloaded the nail polish for short nails here, you will still need to download this new mesh in order for any of these recolors to work.***

-new mesh (created by me)
-nail polish recolors

Category in Game:
-available for child through elder for both males and females
-Facial Hair, Makeup, & Glasses > Glasses (the thumbnail will show the default Sim head, but if you hold your cursor over the icon it will say 'ShadyLady482's Long Nails:' plus the color name - for example, 'ShadyLady482's Long Nails: Red')

-You can adjust the shape and length of the nails by editing the alpha .bmp file. See the second-to-last thumbnail for examples - the middle nail shows the maximum length of the mesh (in case you have a need for ridiculously long nails ), and the other two show differently shaped tips.
-Can be worn at the same time as other accessories
-Stays on the Sim at all times, including showering and swimming
-Slightly reflective

Pictured but *NOT* Included:
-Maureen's Over the Moon/La Vie Boheme Outfit (movie version): Available here at MTS2 or here at Sims 4 Rent

Terms of Use:
-Please do *not* upload my files (this includes meshes and textures) to any other website, personal or otherwise.
-Please do not reuse any of my original (ie. non-Maxis) textures as part of other projects (recolors of my nail polish textures are okay - see below)
-I don't mind if people want to make recolors of this one, as long as they are not Rent-related, and you do not redistribute the actual mesh. Please credit and link back to this post or Sims 4 Rent so people can download the original mesh themselves. If you do recolor, it would be great if you could let me know because I'd love to see what other people make!

Feedback is much appreciated. Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing, by the way how do I make them for my female sims only? Is there a way to remove them from the male slots? I just want the shorter nails for the males.

Uhm, I hate to ask this question, but I love your nails so I will. Is there any way you can create a .zip file? My computer won't cooporate with winRAR. D: I really like this mesh, but I can't have it without the .zip files! D: So that I don't put you to TOO much trouble, I just need the mesh! But thanks! (If you do it, then thanks! LOL)

I downloaded these and they didn't show up. This was written about two weeks after downloading the nail mesh. Nothing comes up. Why?

Unless you own Double Deluxe then everything goes to documents/ea games/Double Deluxe/Downloads. Sad for us Double Deluxe users we are always forgotten.

The part about them being editable actually turns me off to these. I want something I don't have to do any programming with. That's why I go get downloads and don't do that Bodyshop stuff myself. So, idk what u're talkn about when you say alpha edit tho I can kinda guess and it's more work than worth.
