Are nails are on the tips of our fingers and toes since we were born.
Have you ever thought: What do these things actually help out?
If we didn’t have nails, we wouldn’t be able to grasp anything, and wouldn’t be able to run.
And of course, you wouldn’t be able to beautifully design your nails.
In this article we will focus on nails, which protect us and keep us beautiful, and remind us to always have the feeling of “Thanks” towards them.

Understanding the role of nails
Nails are an appendicular organ of your skin. They protect the tips of your hands and feet.
The role of your fingernails
The bones of your fingers end near the center of your fingertips. Your nails help support the tips of the fingers which the bones do not reach.
If you didn’t have nails, it will be difficult to grasp small and fine items. Nails enable you to create nail pressure, which helps you be able to apply pressure to your fingers and grasp objects. If you didn’t have nails, your fingertips will feel squishy.
The role of your toenails
Your toenails help you grasp the ground and keep balance. When you walk or run, your nails are in action and keep you from falling down. Without nails, we would not be able to do the things we normally do.
Also, without nails, besides having a hard time running or putting strength into our feet, we will apply excessive pressure to our inner organs since we will not be able to keep body balance.
Also, many nerves are located on our fingertips.
Have you ever had the experience of hitting something with your fingers, and your nails were just about to come off?
As you can understand from the pain that comes along, nails exist to protect these nerves.
Keep your nails clean
Many people look at peoples nails the first time they meet them, and make it a reference to determine the overall cleanliness of the person. We recommend you always keep your nails clean.
Even if the man or woman looks very beautiful on the outside, if their fingers were full of splinters and their nails were dirty, they might be irresponsible on the inside.
The ideal nail length
Although designing your nails is a common fashion among women, many men do not actually like it.
It is said to give an image of not doing household chores often, and does not seem natural. In a questionnaire to random people in town, over 60% people answered that they prefer normal nails rather than designed nails.
There is a certain nail length that makes them look beautiful. If they are too long, they may give out an unclean image.
Looking from the palm of your hands, the white area of your nails being 2〜3mm long is the ideal length of the nail, making them look well balanced, and keeping nail strength.
Say thanks to your nails
The root of your nails has many nerves around it, making it a very delicate area,
Nerves centered around your nail root is a pressure point. By stimulating these pressure points you can activate your parasympathetic nerves, giving you many positive effects concerning your health. The largest reason that your immune system lowers is since the number of lymphocytes lowers due to your sympathetic nerve system becoming nervous.
Your nails help you grasp objects and help you walk and run. Show your gratitude to them by massaging them sometimes.
How to massage your nails
It’s very easy.
Pinch the root of your nails with your thumb and index finger. Massage each finger 10〜20 seconds. Stimulate it enough so it stings just a little bit, and try to feel if your nails are feeling happy about it.
The effects and precautions concerning nail massaging
By stimulating the pressure points of your nails, your parasympathetic nerves are activated, which strengthens your immune system and prevents fatigue and illnesses.
But since your ring finger has a sympathetic nerve system which energizes your mind and body, be careful not to stimulate your ring finger too much while massaging, since it may give negative results.
Caring your fingertips will not only change your hands and feet, but will effect you entirely.
Having clean nail will give an overall image of cleanliness. It will especially help men become more attractive against women. Keep your nails clean for you own good.
As we mentioned, if we didn’t have nails we will have a very hard time picking up objects, or run fast.
Your nails help you out more than you think. Don’t take them for granted, remember to say “thank you” to them occasionally, and take care of them more that you used to.
