Do people sell their fingernails?

I seem to be able to grow my fingernails quite long without to much bother. I often get comments, someone recently suggested I sell them. Is that something people really do?

I hope not!

I remember a girl at college 20 years ago who had extremely long nails. She used to say she was growing them to sell but I wasn't sure if she was telling the truth or not.

Sell them to who? And for what?

WTF? Who would buy them? Is it a weird fetish thing?

You mean as a fetish thing? I've heard of people buying worn shoes and tights but fingernails is a new one!

Never heard of this but now it's been mentioned I wonder too because everything else seems to have a price so I suppose although it would be a niche market I bet there is a market.

Yes, probably someone on craigslist will buy them!

What would you use someone else’s fingernails for?! They might attempt to extract your DNA and clone you 😲

Well you can use human hair in wigs and extensions I thought maybe there might be a market for 'real' nails.

Apparently it's a thing. It's disgusting but it's definitely a thing you can do. Google it.
