+$Despite only being shared very recently, Miyuli's tweet has exploded. At the time of writing, thousands of social media users have given it a like, and hundreds have shared it.
+$Twitter users have also been flooding the replies to voice their approval.+$One Artist+$said: "Thank you! I’ve been focusing on hands a bit recently and this really helps." While+$another Replied+$with: "Super helpful guide and reminder! Thank you very much".
+$Perhaps the reason this post is so popular is because it deals with the specifics of fingernails. These can be especially tricky to draw as, once you've nailed the shape of the hand, it can be all too easy to hastily sketch in some approximate nail shapes and call it a day.
