Not digging dirty nails... YUCK!
DISPLAYING DIRTY FINGERNAILS
Why It's Not So Cool: Why bother hitting the gym and dressing for success when a speck of crud hiding under the tip of your pinkie screams "Mama never taught me how to wash myself!"
The Health Risk: A study showed that 24 percent of men harbor germs under their nails that could cause gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and the intestines, with vomiting and diarrhea, usually as a result of bacterial or viral infection). This is because the space under your nails is a prime breeding ground for a veritable cornucopia of viruses. Lucky for guys, short nails are easier to keep clean than the talons some ladies sport—and let's just hope she's washing well before making you a cheeseburger.Lets hope you wash your hands before you touch your lady!
