— Nails greeting the player
Nails is a character in Splatoon 3 who runs the headgear shop in Splatsville, Naut Couture, alongside Gnarly Eddy, his employee. He is an energetic sea snail, his personality contrasting with the laid-back Gnarly Eddy.
Nails is a small sea snail, similar in appearance to Super Sea Snails. He has a brown shell and pink body, and he wears a yellow baseball cap atop his shell and black sunglasses over his eyes.
|“||SRL Fashion Desk here with info on Naut Couture, Splatsville's headgear shop. It seems the laid-back shopkeeper Gnarly Eddy and his, uh, less laid-back boss Nails sell hats, masks, glasses, and other things you wear on your head. PSA: do NOT attempt to wear Nails as a hat.||”|
