Can you imagine what it would be like to have no fingernails? Not only would your hands look funny, removing your nails would also take away a barrier of protection put there to safeguard the ends of your fingers. Plus, how could you remove a stubborn label from a package if you had no fingernails to scrape it with? Think of the dilemma you’d face when you tried to scratch your back when no one else was around and the bare tips of your fingers alone, did not even come close to making the itching stop. Life would definitely be different if fingernails were not a part of your anatomy.
