Extreme finger nails
These hands belong to Graziella, whose family owns the restaurant. When I see someone who has gone to great lengths to alter their appearance I assume there is something else different about them too. Why did she decide not to cut her nails for a year? Graziella says it's because she likes the attention it attracts to her. It's certainly a talking point.
Obviously there are a few people with nails that are far longer, you see them in online articles and images, but these are perhaps the longest I have personally seen on someone I have met. After the meal our conversation about the nails opened out into broader issues. It turns out that she is married to a well known MMA fighter called John Thompson (mixed martial arts http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mixed_martial_arts) . He has a blog that attracts 40,000 hits a day, which makes my blog seem completely puny. http://colossalconcerns.com/ Graziella is the one that makes sure it is all over the social media. It's quite a skill and she is a woman with the drive not only to grow her nails but to make things happen in life.
I wish I had had the courage to ask permission to take a photo of her but thought it was already quite impertinent to take a photo of her hands. Shall we say that she is very pretty and to me very young. but then, I am pretty old. Well, she is certainly young ... and smart.
