What is the length of your nails?

Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Did you know?

Fingernails, like hair, are made of a protective protein called keratin

Fingernails grow about one tenth of an inch per month. Your fastest growing nail is on your middle finger, and the slowest growing nail is on your thumb. Nails grow faster in warmer climates than in colder ones. Typing on a computer keyboard can actually stimulate nail growth because the action increases blood flow in the matrix where matrix cells are formed, and this helps increases growth. Nail biting, or onychophagia, is the most common nervous habit according to WebMD and is very easy to spot when looking at someones' hands. In fact, nails are often seen as a window to the entire body. A well-trained doctor can tell a lot about your health from looking at your nails. For example, if your nail bed has a blueish discoloration it could be a sign of lung disease. And if you become dehydrated, it makes your nails dry and brittle. In addition to being an indicator of health, for many women, nails are an indicator of wealth as nothing screams that you have your life together more than a perfectly polished and manicured hand. Nail polish was invented around 5000 years ago by the Chinese who mixed gelatine and beeswax to make it. In Ancient Egypt, nail polish was used to signify class rankings. The lower class wore nude or light colors, and the high society painted their nails red-a color that remains iconic for nails even today. Nowadays, the most expensive bottle of nail polish in the world costs over $200,000 and is made with 267 karats of black diamonds in it!

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
