Do not really see any drawback to either fingernail or side grind, lot has to do with style of bowl you are working on.
Like many turners like both styles on my bowl gouges have different bevel angles on them. On spindle gouges prefer fingernail although have one old 3/8” gouge with very pointed tip for reverse turning, and final turning.

Elsworth, Irish, side or sweptback grind & Texas grind all the same thing.

Some turners use a side grind for both spindle & bowl turning.

Some turner like a double bevel on their bowl gouges regardless how bevel is ground.

Think Dale explains lot better than I can.
