The group was founded by Maria and later, they started calling themselves the Long Nail Goddesses.
Maria, who is a transgender woman, told Barcroft TV: “We’re not aiming for a group with the longest nails, it’s just small community, it’s a sisterhood. Some girls like short nails, some girls like the real nails, some girls like the artificial nails – there’s no competition.”
“This is like family to me. When it was rough out there and I need someone to talk to, one of y’all was there. and vice versa, there’s stuff that’s so intimate between us that you don’t even share with your partners.”
The women say their nails attract a lot of attention wherever they go. Some even criticize them for having the gigantic nails.
Maria said: “These are my nails and they’re not bothering me – why should it bother you? Long nails are sexy, of course, look at me! They don’t even know you and they wanna ask you ‘how do you wipe your heinie’ and stuff like that. Tissue, with tissue, I’m tired of saying ‘with tissue’.”
Maria says there are some men who love the long nails. The group of women doesn’t care about the criticism as Maria says they are here to stay whether anyone likes it or not.
She said: “We’re here to stay, whether you like it or not, we’re taking over the world. One day at a time. If you can’t accept me with long nails then I don’t want ya!”
