I Have Long Nails

    I Don't Glam It Up Though

    - I have nails that grow long and hard fast. I keep hearing how some have a hard time typing with long nails. With me it is opposite. I make more typos when I have short nails. I guess my nails grip the keys like claws or something. I don't get into polishing, studding, filing...

    French Acrylic.

    They are a touch longer then the ones in the group picture. I have them because I love the look of long nails but due to varies reasons my real nails are as thin as paper and snap before they have any real length on them. - RDW

    don't do anything to my nails,

    though. they just grow, long, hard, and fast. reason i don't cut them regularly: 1) they're pretty cool 2) I'm too lazy 3) they're more like claws, so they're really easy to use if you want to do self-harming by scratching or scalping your scars and lips (I do all three, if you...

    Why Must It Always Be A Problem?

    I have been told repeatedly that many women would covet my nails and the speed at which they grow. Although the appearance of my nails doesn't matter to me, they're quite useful (for opening old containers and such)... but I'm a guy. People nearest to the general location of my...

    Stop Growing!!

    I neglect to cutting them and they eventually grow. Too fast!! I keep trying to tell them, but they don't listen, just keep on growing. I know I'm going to have to cut them eventually, but I like them the way they are at the moment. Problem is, they keep breaking off. i'll look...

    I've Always Had Long Nails

    I even had somewhat long nails when I was a kid! I never grow them so long that they look like talons though. I don't find that as nice. Long, but not excessively long, is the perfect length for me. I have no problems with them and I only sometimes break the thumb nails and...

    I LOVE LONG NAILS, BUT IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO TYPE

    One of the few beauty pleasures I induldge in, is long nails.  I just love them!  And they are no problem in anything I do in life, except they slow me down on the computer.  That annoys me.  Normally, without nails, I type 80 wpm.  Now, with long...

    Err...some nails. Sometimes.

    I never cut them, they always break off before they get to a good length. My job is so hard on them, even a few coats of super durable polish wont help. Which is a damn shame, because I really don't function well with not-enough-nail. I use them for evert thing, most important...

    I've had my nails long for about 20 years now, I used to bite them as a child, but once they started to grow I just left them to it!I find it annoying when one breaks, especially if it's one of the longer ones, but I've never been tempted to cut them all to the same length and...

    They Grow Quickly

    I don't get them done anymore, they just grow. I keep them a bit shorter these days because of my 2 year old, I don't want to scratch her. When I was younger I would pay tons of money getting wraps that would only wreck them. I remember when I soaked the wraps off...the damage...

    These are my natural nails

    after a week of growth. I am curious to see how long they would get if I didn't trim them for the piano, but they are way overdue. I adore the look of lethally long nails with a cherry gleam a la Lana Del Rey. I wish I could utilize these claws for the purposes of vanity and...

    The Beginning...

    I am a 29-year-old chap, my pinky nails are longer than 20 cm and the others are beyond 10. I was 5, when I noticed that my mom omits my pinky nails from cutting. She explained me just in order to have "moody" cat nails when I entered the school. And really, they were...

    Mine are naturally long.

    They kind of get in the way, but my bf likes me to scratch his back for him sometimes so I keep them. Sometimes I cut them because of bowling and they are back to crazy long like two days later.

    Sometimes

    I usually keep my nails long, but if I break one, I cut them all short and start over. I enjoy long nails, but not crazy-scary long.

    since i was little. i thought they were cool haha. Maybe i was just weird. I didn't like the process of acrylic nails... They grow long really fast and a lot of people comment on how my nails are gross just because they are longer than theirs. It's not like they're so long they...

    Long Nails And The Pinky Even Longer

    I always have long fingernails that are manicured and polished in wild colors. I've had them as long as having more free edge than nail bed, of course that makes typing difficult and I wouldn't be able to make a fist. Usually I keep them as long as I can without them making...
