When we look at the false nail, we have to explore it from a selection of different angles. Like everything in our world, context is an important tool for the design process. We have to assess things based on how suitable they are for a particular environment.
In this case, we are taking a look at whether the false nail is a suitable candidate for the world of work. We hope that you took note of that word “context” because it’ll come up quite a lot in the next few paragraphs.
Can a Fake Nail be Acceptable?
So the question that a lot of people ask is whether or not a false nail can be suitable for a work environment. We believe that it can, but only within a certain context. It’s important to keep the situation in mind when you’re looking at the overall suitability of any product. What is acceptable in one situation will not be appropriate in another.
False nails are incredibly pretty to look at. They are also quite durable, flexible, and they help to protect your natural fingernails from damage. However, this does not make them an all-round product. They’re not an accessory which is suitable for every occasion.
Looking at Examples
To try and highlight our beliefs, let’s take a look at some examples of situations where false nails are either completely acceptable or not appropriate at all.
To start with, imagine any public-oriented role. It could be customer support, it could be someone who works in the sales department, visiting clients and prospective customers all around the country. In this situation, false nails can be a good choice. They help to enhance your look, which helps you to make a good impression, and they add a particular professionalism to the way that you conduct yourself, which is good for securing a business deal.
Now imagine a job which is focused on physical labour. It could be working in a factory or it could be typing away at a computer all day. False nails wouldn’t be appropriate here. They would break and chip because you’re performing tasks which aren’t suitable for them. This is the kind of discrimination that we aim to promote in our customers because what you will find is that when you don’t use the false nails in the right situations, they will break. And that isn’t a fault on our part as a manufacturer. Instead, that is a user error.
So, in conclusion, it is important to identify situations where false nails can be useful. There are many instances where they can be a very capable and useful resource for people to take advantage off. However, it does require that you are employing enough intelligence to be able to tell the difference between a situation when false nails would be useful, and a situation where they wouldn’t be. It’s all about that context that we keep talking about. You have to be able to contextualise whether a false nail is going to be the right choice for you because otherwise, you cannot hope to get the most appropriate use out of the product.
