#13: Acrylic Nails by LaCrystal

There are several devices the human species utilizes to express themselves and get their point across during a conversation. For most people, raising the pitch of one’s voice, and hand gestures would suffice, but ghetto people are a little different. Speaking loudly, snapping one’s neck/teeth/lips to punctuate sentences, and the sprinkling in of curses, obscenities, and slang for emphasis may come to mind, but ghetto people are far more complex than that. Ghetto people have come to depend on small, yet effective hand decorations that not only look great, but also exaggerate their hand motions to help their listener to better comprehend their message. Hence acrylic nails with intricate designs.

While acrylic nails have been around for ages and are worn by nearly everyone, only ghetto people have mastered how to use them to maximize their effectiveness in day to day life. Only a lime green, three inch long acrylic nail with rhinestones and a piercing could catch the attention of a man with a straying eye. That is why you can often spot a ghetto female pointing and clicking her nails while reprimanding her cheating man. When he sees those nails flicking rapidly and clicking, he knows trouble is astir. Nails can also be used to elicit fear into the hearts of young children. Kids tremble at the sight of a pointed finger adorned with intricate nails, because strength and size of the hand that is about to whip them is emphasized.

This breakthrough in communication has garnered so much success for ghetto people, that sometimes words are not even necessary. This form of communication is comparable to sign language. A beginner can tap her nails against a hard surface to show boredom. A ghetto observer will notice the nails and pay more attention resulting in both ghetto people no longer being bored.

At the intermediate level a ghetto person can alternate the use of nail clicking, neck/teeth/lip smacking and multiple sighs to express anger to onlookers. But a fluent ghetto person can convey every emotion, be it excitement or rage, with a simple point or hand flip. This is very impressive. If you find yourself unable to understand a fluent ghetto person, do not panic. Try complimenting her nails and saying, “Wow. I never thought of that!” No matter what she was talking about she will like you because you like her nails. However, if you suspect said person may be upset, do not try to diffuse the situation by commenting on how beautiful her nails look. She may become irate. Try instead to focus on where she is pointing and study her hand motions. When, and only when, she notices you understand and calms down, try saying “You have a beautiful way with words… Hey, nice nails!”. You will have won yourself a new friend.

    These nails are ABSOLUTELY ridiculous. Just to think that anyone, let alone poor BP, spend their non-existent disposable income on a silly and tacky consumer bad such as these. Where has all of our common sense gone?

  6. This is something that just really don’t offend me!Other than the unnecessary waste of funds, this particular thing ain’t that bad or that crucial. It’s a fashion fad! The sun gon still shine if folks did it tomorrow! Even with the waste of funds, folks-from every class- waste they money on dumber stuff everyday!

  7. That is so out rages but I have seen worst in the white community look up duck feet nails then tell me what is ghetto

  8. SassyClassyMyriam

    I don’t understand why would anyone want some nails to look like soda cans. What a small mind , simple minded people so ghetto.

    French tips are so much better.

  9. Queen Hazards proves: Not all ghetto people are black, sometimes they live in homes with wheels

  10. The over the top nails are U-G-L-Y but some of the designs are beautiful…I love the little palm trees or the basic color with little colorful accents.

  11. Well the design is intricate but the product is tacky, if she wanted a job as a pr person she’d probably get some offers, I just hope she doesn’t get diabetes and try to sue the cola industry!!!!!!

  12. LOL well.. I must say that some of you are quite funny.. “small minded people are so ghetto, i think french tips are much better” hahahaha Ya know that I have looked EVVVERYWHERE to try to get my nails done like this. I know for a fact that uppty rich white people ONLY know how to do french tip. hahahha because they are so smart! ha! Id so rather be called small minded and ghetto and appreciate everything I see then be CLOSED MINDED like a horse with side blinders on. LIVE A LITTLE PEOPLE.. GEEEEZ!

  13. If u look at her hand shes white so stop talking about black ppl ….white ppl wanna be ghetto to .

  14. The person who wrote this blog is a retarded sterotypical douche with no sense in civil obedience. Here’s a penny! Enjoy wasting your life!

    PS: This is why people who listen to rap music always tend to lose half of their brain cells by the time they decide they want a music career.

  15. i think its hot

  16. dear NicoleV
    the reason that white ppl don’t know how to do there nails is because they spend more studing and working in school and saving up for college, and less time swearing and fighting and acting stupid. look at this girl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKlutvZ-EgQ
    she complained she only had $20 and had to sleep outside yet she could afford to spend her money and acrilic nails and a fake pointytail. so classic.

  17. oh and funny,
    i definetely agree with you. Whoever made this should notice that is a white person’s hand. You need to realize that all colors of people are ghetto and anoying. Many whites are ghetto too, with blacks (real africans usually) being very intelligent.

  18. Now you’re talking ghetttoooo

  19. Dose b mi nails! How did u git dis pic?
