Why do men have long little finger nails?

It's often referred to as a "pimp nail" or "coke nail". There

appear to be some other cultural reasons (Chinese used to do it as

a sign of not needing to do manual labor). Other people report

keeping a long nail to scratch, pick their nose, and dig in their

ears. In recent history, however, the most immediate connotation is

that the person either uses cocaine, is in actuality a pimp, or

wants to portray the image of one or the other (blindly following

hip hop culture).
