If you didn’t already hear, fur nails showed up on the Libertine runway during the most recent Fashion Week cycle and bloggers and influencers alike have been trying the style on their own.
We searched high and low looking for black women sporting this trend, but could only find one of the models from the fashion show rocking the trend. Here are some reasons why I certainly won’t be rocking this trend:
The perfect twist out would be harder to achieve
It’s already a struggle to twist up all our hair, have it dry in 2.5 hours before we need to be somewhere, AND take it down with causing a frizzy fro — fur nails would make it just tew much.
Fur nails would get caught in our crochet braid install
Imagine your latch hook getting caught on one of your fur nail bristles. OUCH.
Massaging our scalps would be difficult if not impossible
Scalp massages are integral to hair growth and hair health, and getting castor oil all over these fur nails would be disgusting. Without scalp massages, we’d be left with patting our scalps, and patting is never cute, even for Queen B.
Detangling would be a nightmare
Where do we even begin? Our hair already knots right back up despite our finger detangling efforts, and fur would only make the process more difficult.
Eating would become very very weird
I for one immediately thought that these furry nails would make eating wings, fries, ribs, suya, beef patties, and a whole host of other delicious things eaten with your hands quite difficult for black women. Or anyone. But especially us.
Thank God this trend is NOT catching on — I prefer hair on my head not my nails thanks!
