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!

Well, I feel thoroughly stupid asking this, but, how do you edit an alpha file???

I don't know but thet do how ever not attach to the fingers in my Bodyshop not my CreateAsim they are floating in the air around the fingers but not on them. So my guess is that they do need some editing.

I had been using your nails for quite some time with no problems, they had been working fine with the eps NL, UV, OFB and Seasons.

But when i installed FT and new ep AL they no longer work.

I removed them, and re downloaded and reinstalled them,but same thing they do not show up in the body shop.

As you are aware there is an accessory's Grid from BV up to AL.
So I would say this could be the problem!.

But i have noticed that with FT and AL the sims now have nails,and of course they are really not as nice as yours.

Do you think it is possible that this could be the problem why they are not working any more!.

Such a shame about this I truly miss your wonderful nails in my game
My sims just look incomplete without them
