Here’s What Happened When I Tried Wearing Acrylic Nails For Three Days
I, Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez, wore acrylic nails for three day as part of a mitú social experiment video. It was me and two dudes learning how to live, work, and function with these nails and the results were interesting. Before you ask, using the bathroom was not the kind of challenge I expected. But more about that later…
The very first thing I tried was typing (since it’s a huge part of my job) and it sucked.Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez
My own productivity plummeted as a result of the nails and I was happy to write three words in a row without having to retype them. To this day I still don’t get how people can type with those nails.
Even the old pen and paper was a challenge I couldn’t fully master.Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez
No matter how I positioned my hands I was being stabbed by those talons I was living with.
However, the animals that call my apartment home were thrilled when I got home.Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez
And I do mean thrilllled.Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez
At least someone was benefiting from my nails choice. ??
I painfully caught these little daggers on everything from door handles to pant pockets.Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez
There was a time or two when I thought I had ripped my nail off leaving me in tears with no relief in sight.
And they were not as helpful or strong as I had always thought they were.Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez
Such. ?? A. ?? Bad. ?? Idea! ??
Tying shoes quickly became a time consuming and soul-crushing affair.Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez
And taking them off made me really think about my life choices.
At some point, I was sure that these nails were out to get me, like when they tried to ruin my lunch.Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez
How does one even do this?!
But, an insider tip, these acrylic nuisances make for wonderful ear scratchers.Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez
That moment made three days of torture and immobility totally worth it.
