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.
Several people requested a rounded-tip version of the long nails that I posted recently, so here you go!

I've altered the file descriptions and the text that appears when you hold your mouse over the icons in the game, so you can tell which are round tips and which are square if you have both.

Be sure to download the mesh here if you haven't already.

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

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 and the shape- for example, 'ShadyLady482's Long Nails: Red (rounded)')

-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

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!

I've tried several different fingernails I've found on the web and I like yours the best by far. Thank you.

hi shadylady

i really love your unisexe nails!

which is why im bothering you (well hopefully not)

i was wondering if you would permit me to use your long nails as a base for me to make long & extra long claws!???

if you do not want...i respect that! just let me know by pm if you may!

anyways, keep up the great work either way!

thanks for your time
take care

Wow, I can't even imagine how you did this. I thought about dabbling in Milk Shape, but it looked so hard to understand. Thank you so much for these.
